Belgian Sand by Diresco Quartz
Belgian Sand Quartz Material Description
Belgian Sand is a dark grey, light 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 Sand 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 grey, light brown Belgian Sand 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 & speckled Belgian Sand 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 Sand?
The slabs of Belgian Sand 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 Sand so unique?
Product colour description:
Dark grey tones of this Diresco Belgian Sand kitchen worktop material are synonymous with modernity and contemporary trends. Dark grey used to be associated with dull, stormy clouds or bland concrete, but for some reason, over the last decade, this hue really came to prominence as definition of trendiness. Whether you have white, cream, black, purple or even grey cabinets, this shade will suit them all. Dark grey worktops are all-embracing materials that slot perfectly into any environment, irrespective of surrounding kaleidoscope of lively colours.
Our light brown kitchen worktop colours, like Belgian Sand quartz, embody the magnetic power of eye-attraction. They are intricate and unusual. At first, we associate light brown worktops with hardwood, often utilised for kitchen surfaces. But at second glance, the mocha-hued material ends the deception, and we realise (still enchanted), that we’re gazing at stone. Light brown kitchen worktops are superb for lovers of natural motifs, vintage accents and rustic spaces. The light brown + cream pairing is our absolute favourite.
Material structure & composition:
Small grains, a feature of this Belgian Sand 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.
Majority of our stone products, as Belgian Sand 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 dark grey, light brown Belgian Sand 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 small grained & speckled Belgian Sand. 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.
