Andes Grey by Brachot Hermant Quartz
Andes Grey Quartz Material Description
Andes Grey is a dark brown quartz material that comes in a polished & velluto texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Brachot Hermant company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Andes Grey is the perfect material for stone kitchen worktops?
To this day, quartz remains one of our best-selling stone worktops products. It is nearly infallible, defined by near-indestructible properties, easy cleaning & maintenance, but above all exceptional beauty. Quartz is modern, stylish, sleek and perfectly slots into any environment, as though it naturally belongs there.
The dark brown Andes Grey quartz worktops are incredibly sturdy and resistant to abrasion, cutting, staining and general wear and tear that impact other, weaker materials, like wood or laminate worktops. You may cut vegetables, fruit or meat directly on a quartz surface, forgoing the need for chopping boards. Even the sharpest of blades won’t scratch this durable stone.
The sleek quartz kitchen worktops are also completely waterproof. Since they are man-made products, they are imbued during the production process with special resins and agents that prevent all water absorption. Therefore, even if you leave a coffee, wine, grease or water spill over night, the worktop won’t soak any of it up, leaving the colour and pristine shine entirely unharmed.
Discolouration, chipping, and warping aren’t a threat to small grained Andes Grey kitchen quartz worktops. These are products blessed with incredible longevity and unmatched durability. In essence, these tops are a one-off purchase that lasts a lifetime.
What thicknesses are available for Andes Grey?
The slabs of Andes Grey by Brachot Hermant are available in 20mm or 30mm thicknesses. This stone material depth is ideal for multiple applications. From big projects like kitchen worktops, paving, flooring & wall cladding to smaller installations of coffee tabletops, dining tables or windowsills. Surfaces of this depth are manufactured in bespoke fashion, tailor-made to complete even the most demanding projects.
What makes Andes Grey so unique?
Product colour description:
Dark Brown is the colour of tree bark and earth. These are hues that represent elements vital to our existence. Andes Grey by Brachot Hermant tries to emulate that mood and pervade it through the kitchen to create an ambience of nature and peacefulness. The earthy tones also bring out the friendly, inviting quality of the interior. Dark brown kitchen worktops go well with other raw elements like non-lacquered wooden cabinets, oak tables or grey/black slate floor panels / tiles.
Material structure & composition:
Small grains, a feature of this Andes Grey worktop product, add a stoney, rough effect to the smooth surface. It’s a fantastic way to pick a generally plain-coloured product without it appearing lifeless or lacking dimension. Our fine-grained materials are very popular due to their universality. Whether it’s your bathroom, kitchen, utility room or stairwell, this product may be applied to any home setting. Furthermore it masks signs of grime, mud or muck – perfect for those patio floors!
Material recommended for:
- Stairs & step cladding,
- Bathroom worktops & vanity tops,
- Utility room tops.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The dark brown Andes Grey by Brachot Hermant can be supplied in a ‘polished’ texture. This means a scintillating gloss that beautifully reflects the light and highlights the true colours & pigments embedded within the product. The polished texture is one of the most popular surface finishes, mostly present among quartz worktops and granite worktops, although ceramic suppliers also adopt this finish for their stone slabs. These surfaces are easy to clean and prevent all liquid absorption.
Many Brachot Hermant slabs, like the dark brown Andes Grey, are treated with specialised scouring that produces the ‘velluto’, also known as ‘matte’ finish. It’s a velvety, more natural polish that is firstly less reflective and secondly more reminiscent of the coarse ceramic texture. When applied to a quartz worktop, it beautifully brings out the intricate composition details dispersed within the material. It also enhances some of the ‘natural stone’ authenticity, adding flavour to the rather deceptive man-made quartz.
