Paving stone from Koretsky granite Rosa Raveno, sawn-split, thermo, split edges 100x100x30
The name of this granite paving stone is entirely clear: it is made by sawing granite from the Koretsky deposit into strips. The width of such blanks is approximately 20 cm, and the thickness is 3 cm. After the disk stone-cutting machine, we process the blanks of Koretsky granite with a flame – using special gas burners. Heat treatment of granite takes place at the highest possible temperature – 1200 degrees Celsius. This production operation shows that temperatures of less than 1200 degrees do not bother Rosa Raveno granite at all. And this, in turn, means that the happy owners of granite countertops have the opportunity to absolutely fearlessly put hot metal dishes from the fire directly onto the granite. After flame treatment, granite strips, 30 millimeters thick, are fed to a hydraulic press for splitting stone. This is where the extra stone is chopped off along the edge of each slab. Thanks to this, each paving slab receives a relatively accurate size of 10 centimeters. The lateral side of each granite paving stone, after such splitting, has the structure of a natural rock.
How to professionally and aesthetically lay sawn-split paving stones from Koretsky granite
Let’s not be lazy and note that the chipped sides and not completely straight edges of this type of granite paving stone are not a drawback, but its huge advantage! It will be reasonable to emphasize natural chipping when laying paving stones. This can be achieved if the gap between adjacent stones is not filled for the entire 3 cm thickness. It is rational and aesthetically pleasing to leave at least one centimeter without filler. When laid on a rigid static base, which is highly recommended, this is easily done with 30 mm thick slabs. Recall that granite paving stones measuring 10×10 centimeters are no longer just paving stones, but almost paving slabs. Especially when you consider its absolutely smooth anti-slip top, which creates absolute comfort when walking.
Another refinement in the design of such granite paving stones is the ability to emphasize the seam. It can be decorated with material from another hard rock – for example, yellow sandstone chips. The red color of granite paving stones from the Koretsky quarry goes well with light gray Pokostovsky granite, or black labradorite.
Delivery and packaging of sawn-split paving slabs from Koretsky granite
We pack similar red granite paving stones either in big bags or on euro-pallets 1200*800 mm. In the second case, be sure to additionally bind with a strong polymer tape. This is necessary to guarantee the safety of products during delivery. If you decide to buy paving stones from Koretsky granite 100x100x30 in advance, and you know that it will lie before laying for several months. Then, in such a situation, we strongly recommend that you additionally wrap each pallet with paving stones with polyethylene film. Thanks to such a simple operation, the anti-slip rough surface of granite will not be too dusty during storage – before installation begins.
Rosa Raveno granite from the Zhadkovsky quarry is a rather hard and dense stone! Its specific gravity lies in the range from 2670 to 2730 kg per 1 m3. If this value is presented in a different way, then we get the weight of 1 meter of square Koretskaya paving slabs 100×100 and 3 cm thick: 80 – 82 kg.
