Glacier by Beltrami Quartz
Glacier Quartz Material Description
Glacier is a light grey quartz material that comes in a polished texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Beltrami company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Glacier 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 Glacier 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 blemished & worn Glacier 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 Glacier?
The slabs of Glacier by Beltrami 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 Glacier so unique?
Product colour description:
The light grey colour of Glacier by Beltrami 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 thicker blemishes and occasional veins of Glacier spread throughout the surface in an irregular manner. The blemished surface creates a stunning, organic-looking composition reminiscent of polished marble. Finally, the worktop can brim with life which emanates from the depths of the intricate veins. This wild, untamed and unpredictable appearance will be ideal for lovers of natural stone elements, complementing other raw materials like wood, metal or glass.
Material recommended for:
- Modern kitchens,
- Kitchen islands,
- Waterfall/mitred side panels.
The worn effect, present on Glacier above, is reminiscent of rough, brushed materials like unpolished metal, stone or concrete. It’s a rugged style, filled with ‘bruised’ patches that appear scrubbed or worn-out. It’s made for lovers of hoarse, raw traits attributed to decorative resources. These materials fit well into modern kitchens known for inclusion of contrasting, polished, materials or those inclusive of wood, brick, slate, copper or iron elements.
Material recommended for:
- Kitchen worktops,
- Coffee table tops,
- Interiors rich in brick, slate, wood & copper.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The light grey Glacier by Beltrami 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.
