Introducing Dekton!

At Surrey Marble and Granite, we’re keen to keep abreast of new developments in our industry. Dekton and its Sinterized Particle Technology is an exciting new arrival on the scene. We’re proud to offer the complete range of Dekton colours.

Dekton is suitable for a wide range of applications, from pool side paving to kitchen worktops, restaurant bars to patios. An extremely tough material, the manufacturing methods use give it a beauty very like natural stone.

What is Dekton?

Dekton is an ultracompacted material created by Consentino. Using advanced technologies, they mimic the extreme natural conditions that transform quartz and sand into stone. Natural stone is formed over thousands of years – Dekton is ready to use in just a few hours. The process is called Sinterized Particle Technology and uses extreme heat and pressure to fuse materials including quartz, glass, porcelain and sand so they come out tough as stone. 

Dekton-1What’s great about Dekton?

  • You can put a hot pan down on it – it’s heat resistent
  • You can chop on it – it’ll damage your knife, not your worktop
  • Spills wipe off – Dekton is non-porous
  • It’s UV resistant – colours won’t fade in the sun
  • It’s fireproof
  • It’s food safe
  • It’s beautiful
  • It’s available in over 30 colours

Ideal for kitchens and bathrooms

The team at Consentino have designed Dekton to be perfect for kitchens and bathrooms. As it can handle being in constant contact with water, there’s no need to worry about damp air, spills or splashes. It’s tough and hard to damage, yet easy to wipe clean. It’s food safe but you don’t need to worry if someone puts down a hot drink – or a pan straight from the oven. With over 30 beautiful colours and textures to choose from, it’s a great new find for anyone renovating their kitchen or bathroom. 

Dekton-2Great for patios, pools and other outdoor features

Dekton won’t fade in the sun and is designed to handle freezing weather, thaws and constant contact with water. This makes it an ideal choice for outdoor space, such as poolside tiling, patios and pergolas. Dekton provides an elegant alternative to traditional, porous concrete slabs which can quickly become stained and marked. Thanks to its unusual manufacturing, Dekton is non-porous and very nearly stain proof. 

What’s the catch?

As Dekton is so tough, it needs specialist equipment to cut and shape it. As experienced stone workers, our team at Surrey Marble and Granite are able to deal with all the quirks and tricks of this new material. Accustomed to working with granite, we’ve got processes in place to ensure we create  the perfect piece every time. Many kitchen and bathroom fitters work with pre-prepared pieces. It’s best to choose expert stone workers to handle Dekton and critical to have a template properly made as it can’t be trimmed on site if it doesn’t fit.

The kitchen is the heart of the home and for modern families it’s a busy space. As a nation, we are doing an increased amount of our socialising in the kitchen and want more from the space. Combined kitchen/dining areas open up the possibilities from coffee and a chat to full meals with friends. However, if everything is on display, it needs to look its best. This is a key reason why house proud Brits are choosing marble worktops as their kitchen centrepieces.

Creating a welcoming family kitchen is simple, right? All you need is to find materials that are tough enough to withstand football boots, dropped plates, splattered sauces, forgotten paintbrushes, a bicycle snuck indoors, and maybe a pet or two. Oh, and it should look great and not break the bank. Simple! At Surrey Marble and Granite, we’re definitely biased in favour of stone – but that’s partly because we’ve seen how well it stands up to our own little monsters!

What do your customers see when they walk through your doors? For many Surrey businesses, the answer is a drab and prosaic reception area, which doesn’t properly represent the company behind it. As the reception and public meeting areas are often the only part of your business that a client will see, you’re doing your company a disservice if you neglect them. As a comparison, it would be like turning up to a meeting with a great presentation, a smart suit jacket and sweat pants: the last detail undermines the […]
