Introducing Dekton

An engineered stone, Dekton is the product of modern technological developments. It is made from quartz, one of the toughest natural materials, and subject to a process which would destroy most substances yet which transforms an already impressive natural stone into something truly beautiful and incredibly practical.

How is Dekton made?

A new high-tech process called sinterized particle technology mimics the extreme heat and pressure found in the earth’s crust. As a result, natural quartz particles are recombined to create an extremely tough and durable surface. In just a few hours, the Dekton factory can recreate processes which take place over thousands of years in nature, creating a product which is more regular, more uniform and tougher than natural stone.

What is Dekton used for?

Most commonly used for bathroom and kitchen worktops, Dekton has many other possibilities. As the stone is manufactured in slabs up to 3.2×1.44m (10.5×4.7 feet) in size and thicknesses of 8, 12 and 30mm (0.3, 0.5 and 1.2 inches) it can be cut to shape to make almost any stone surface, from wall cladding to flooring, staircases to fireplaces, table tops to floating shelves.

As Dekton is heat and fire resistant; unaffected by snow, ice and low temperatures; and doesn’t fade in sunlight, it is a great choice for both indoor and outdoor applications which is why it’s an increasingly popular choice for indoor/outdoor flow through spaces, conservatories and luxurious outdoor eating and leisure areas.

Dekton in the home

While spas, high-end restaurants and hotels love Dekton for being incredibly robust without sacrificing elegance and style, those same qualities make it an ideal choice for home use. With over 40 colours and textures to choose from, there’s a shade and style to suit every taste.

The same pragmatic details that make Dekton a hit in a luxurious spa or premier restaurant make it a perfect choice for your family bathroom or cosy kitchen. Dekton is manufactured to have zero porosity, which means that the stone doesn’t absorb anything – not a single particle of dirt, water, or other liquids. This factor alone means that it’s totally waterproof and doesn’t stain – even which you spill red wine or boiling tea. It’s easy to clean as all dirt and germs stay on the surface for you to wipe away and is food safe so you can prepare dishes or roll pastry directly on the worktop. As a stone, Dekton is impervious to heat and cold, so hot pans or a dish pulled straight from the freezer won’t harm it.
