Santafiora is a stone made from clastic sedimentary rocks – also known as sandstone – which is steadily compacted by calcite and characterised by its varying colours ranging from sand to hazel
The Santafiora stone is extracted in large blocks thus enabling them to be supplied in bigger slabs.
The technical and mechanical freatures of our stones are guaranteed and they will not be affected by external environmental elements such as smog, frost, acid rain ora salt.
Santafiora’s products can therefore be used in any kind of climate. A specific treatment has been studied (antacid, anti-stain and oil-proof ) for all the stones. This treatment is aimed at increasing the properties and characteristics already excellent in itself.
The company is among the first in Italy to have elaborated these particular processes that make the stones even more excellent.
As a higly valuable material in furnishing, Santafiora is a warm-coloured stone which will provide any construction with an evocative and natural polychrome effect.
Additional finishes such as polishing, flashing, sandblasting, and bushhammering able to provide further aesthetic effects making the stone a versatile product for many applications.
The anti-skid properties and its no susceptinility to frost (certified by major European laboratories) make this stone particularly suitable for squares, historical towns and facings of large areas of both continuous wall cladding and externally ventilated walls.
Santafiora guardantees resistance to anaesthetic dark oxidation (commonly caused by smog). Since it is not susceptible to frost due to its strong tensile strenght, Santafiora is particularly suitable for large externally insulated walls which are exposed to sea salt or placed within earthquake belts.
