Belgian Earth by Diresco Quartz
Belgian Earth Quartz Material Description
Belgian Earth is a dark brown quartz material that comes in a polished texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Diresco company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Belgian Earth 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 Belgian Earth 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 mottled Belgian Earth 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 Belgian Earth?
The slabs of Belgian Earth by Diresco 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 Belgian Earth 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. Belgian Earth by Diresco 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:
Mottled patterns are a common feature on our stone product spectrum. Such is the Belgian Earth material above, filled with speckles that disperse over the surface in irregular fashion, providing the worktop some depth and intricacy. Mottled stone products, whether man-made or organic, fit a whole range of spaces. But above all those traditional pubs or cottage-like interiors steeped with history and organic motifs.
Material recommended for:
- Traditional or historic spaces,
- Chopping boards,
- Fireplace surrounds.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The dark brown Belgian Earth by Diresco 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.
Founded in 2003, Belgium, Diresco is presently one of the largest worldwide providers of composite quartz surfaces. One example is the mottled Belgian Earth. Their prestige spreads far and their products match newest trends, revolutionising the international quartz worktops market. Primarily because Diresco are pioneers of BIO UV Technology that permeates through their quartz composite.
In brief, Diresco products have an incredible resistance to UV rays. This facilitates the worktop’s longevity as it outright prevents discolouration and fading caused by sunlight. Moreover, Diresco products earned their reputation due to their large and diverse spectrum of patterns. Their selection of hues and varied composition is complex and abstract. Each shade contains individual flecks, spots, grains, or a network of intertwining veins.
As such, their quartz composite products are applicable in a range of settings. E.g. quartz kitchen worktops that show resistance against daily perils of cooking life. They’re fantastic for outdoor use too: those BBQ worktops you dreamt of, or the paved paths of a shopping outlet. With Diresco quartz, the possibilities are limitless.
