Typical slab size 3000 x 1400mm. Any sizes over this would need a join.
Silestone® Quartz joints are finished with a small ariss to the top edge. Silicone sealant is applied to prevent water ingression.
Some Silestone® colours have horizontal veining. Veins may vary in intensity and highlight seams. Base colour remains consistent between slabs. Veins when joined together may show and that the pattern can vary in intensity and also directional.
Tolerance in Silestone® Quartz is ±2mm
Due to thermal expansion Silestone® Quartz can expand up to 1mm per metre. A gap of at least 3mm should be left at each end of the worktop when fitted and filled with decorators caulk. When Silestone® Quartz is joined to other materials (such as glass, steel or wood) an elastic type of adhesive, for example polyurethane, is required for expansion.
Overhangs and supports
Any overhang extending more than 300mm must be supported.
