Belgian Fog by Diresco Quartz
Belgian Fog Quartz Material Description
Belgian Fog is a light grey quartz material that comes in a polished texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Diresco company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Belgian Fog 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 light grey Belgian Fog 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 concrete effect & speckled Belgian Fog 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 Fog?
The slabs of Belgian Fog 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 Fog so unique?
Product colour description:
The light grey colour of Belgian Fog by Diresco is without a doubt the most frequently purchased hue in our collection. This is today’s trend, after all. Grey spaces no longer evoke the feeling of industrial melancholy, instead elements like light grey kitchen worktops are implemented into modern architecture because they represent novelty and minimalism. A highly sought-out, attractive colour that instantly becomes the heart of any setting. And because of its deemed universality, it pairs with almost every type of cabinet, from white gloss, through to black matte or brown, classic raw wood.
Material structure & composition:
The concrete effect of Belgian Fog is a one-of-a-kind composition. No other worktop material on the market (apart from concrete itself), can replicate and mimic the look of concrete as well as stone worktops. The usually greyish surface, with a worn feel and irregular pockmark effect make for a stunning foreground in contemporary kitchens that hold a raw, industrial, almost metallic vibe.
Material recommended for:
- Contemporary, minimalistic designs,
- Rough, industrial looking interiors,
- Kitchen islands + downstands.
Majority of our stone products, as Belgian Fog above, are speckled in nature. This means their composition comprises of small-to-medium contrasting veins and threads that spread across the slab surface in a usually regular manner. Like on a leaf, further mimicking the natural inspiration. This structure is a part of our marble-look, natural colour range – fantastic for almost any interior, modern and traditional alike.
Material recommended for:
- Kitchen worktops & full splashbacks,
- Modern and traditional interiors,
- General cladding.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The light grey Belgian Fog 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 concrete effect & speckled Belgian Fog. 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.
