Cubes

Cubes, also Cobble Stones

Of all the different types of external paving, porphyry cobblestones have been the most popular throughout the ages, due to their unique combination of natural beauty and ability to adapt to the most diverse uses.

The surface is natural cleft, and their wide range of sizes and thickness makes porphyry cobblestones a product that can satisfy even the most eclectic tastes. Furthermore, their varying chromatic tonality offers the designer the freedom to satisfy his own aesthetic desire.

 

AVAILABLE TYPES:

 

  • IRREGULAR . Irregular cubes are irregular in shape: variable thickness, but also irregular visible face. They are best used to perform installations in overlapping arches, fish-scale, concentric circles, because their irregularity allows them to adapt to circular lines while reducing the joint size. As opposite, they are not suitable to be installed in parallel rows.

 

  • CUBES THICKNESS 2”
    The 2” size is best used on surfaces where there is little or no traffic, such as footpaths, pedestrian areas, courtyards, gardens, etc.

 

  • CUBES THICKNESS 3”
    The 3” size is suitable for any purpose, either for pedestrian areas or for areas with medium traffic.

 

  • CUBES THICKNESS 4”
    The 4” size is particularly suited to extensive surfaces and streets with heavy traffic.

 

  • CUBES TYPE 4” x 4” :The 4” x 4” cubes are part of a product line designed with the principal purpose of enabling the designer to realize projects which require cubes laid out in parallel rows (that would be not possible with the irregular ones).
    With respect to the thickness, they are suitable for the same kind of applications as the 2”, 3” and 4” type.
