How heavy is
As a guide, you can calculate the volume of your surface
by multiplying the width by the length by the depth
(WxLxD) using centimeters.
A cube of CAST concrete measuring 10x10x10 (ie.1litre)
weighs approx. 2.3kg. We would advise you to ensure
your cabinets are strong enough as some reinforcement
may be required.
What size can you make?
The maximum 'standard' surface size for each piece is
2400mm by 1200mm. Obviously access on site will determine
proportions, as will consideration of the total weight
of the piece.
For one off products and special orders, eg a bath,
these limitations do not necessarily apply.
What colour does it come in?
We have 6 standard colours available as shown here.
These colours can be un-ground or ground to expose the
Un-pigmented mixes are used to produce naturally coloured
We also have a range of custom colours which may be
mixed to your requirements.
Many factors can influence the appearance and colour,
including the amount of grinding and polishing and the
type of aggregate, sand and cement used.
Any samples seen/provided are to be
considered guides only and are not a guarantee of the
final product appearance.
surface finish can I have?
Surface finishes from smooth polished, to rough, are possible
with varying levels of grinding to progressively expose more
aggregate. (Exposed aggregate can still be smooth and polished)
What edges are available?
Our standard edge is straight or vertical with a pencil round
What kind of sink would you suggest using?
We recommend under-mounted steel sinks, as they generally
look great against the concrete. Please take a look at our
recommended range shown here
What splash backs are available?
Custom splash backs are available with a minimum thickness
Can I have a basin built-in?
It is possible to create a built in basin depending on the
design of the surface and the basin.
Can I have/see some samples?

Do you have a showroom?
Our web site and work shop are our showroom. Our workshop

Can your products be used outside?
Yes. It is important to indicate that a product is to be used
outside as we will alter the mix to reduce the chances of
cracking during freezing weather.
What special features do you do?
By choosing to use concrete as your surface material you have
a huge range of possible ways you can customize your surface.
These can include inserts such as fossils, beads, stones,
glass, metal chain, plastic toys and many, many other things.
The surface can be ground and polished to different degrees
to create variations across the surface.
It is even possible to have images imprinted into the surface.
optic lighting can be incorporated.
Draining areas can be custom designed.
The possibilities are only restricted by your imagination.
