Bluestone Tiles for that unique look.
We have quality bluestone tiles for sale that will provide you with that unique look. Bluestone is a well known stone in Australia which is known as basalt in other parts of the world. Many buildings during our pioneering days were built from it. Known for it’s hardness and ruggedness it is only natural that it is now used to make bluestone tiles.
For that cool look around spas, swimming pools, patios as well as hallways and kitchens you can’t go far wrong if you use bluestone floor tiles.
Bluestone is a basalt, a grey to black volcanic rock usually fine grained, due to rapid cooling of lava on the Earth’s surface. All tiles are sawn from large boulders and the surface then differently finished as listed. This stone offers an excellent hard durable surface offering good scratch and slip resistance. Ideal for all commercial, home, internal and external applications. If you wish for further technical information you can find it by going to the wiki site by clicking “here”
We can supply any bluestone floor tile with the following finishes:- Honed, Polished, Flamed and Sandblasted.
“Grit” relates to the fineness of the finish. Diamond polishing pads are used to remove the blade marks from the stone just like sandpaper. Low numbers (50) are coarse, higher numbers (800) are fine. The stone gets darker with finer pads and becomes quite dark and polished with 1500 grit.
For external use you may want to consider bluestone pavers which are made thicker than tiles. Tiles can be used but they require a much firmer base such as concrete.

Bluestone tiles can be used for indoor or outdoor areas but it is important that you lay them on the correct base generally on concrete with the correct mortar. They can also be laid on wood floors provided that the correct tile underlay is used. Our specialist can advise you on your particular use. In heavy use area such as driveways bluestone pavers should be used and most preferably laid on concrete. Once again our specialist can advise.
