Tiles

Our Baltic Grey Limestone tiles are cut according to dimensions specified by our customers. Due to its high density Baltic Grey is classed as a dolomitic limestone which means it is extremely hardwearing. This means architects are able to specify Baltic Grey in areas of high foot traffic including shopping centres, hotels, museums, bars and restaurants.

Baltic Grey and Åland Grey-Beige are the most suitable stone to use as façade tiles due to their high frost resistance and also their appearance. Façade fixing systems vary according to the building construction and so we suggest you refer to our technical file to see which fixing system best suits your project.

BALTIC GREY LIMESTONE, HONED

Baltic Grey limestone with honed finish is most commonly used for indoor areas including private homes and public areas such as hotels, restaurants and museums. The surface is smooth with a matt finish and is very easy to clean and maintain. Honed surface finish is also suitable for external facades when using Åland Grey-Beige and Gotland Grey-Beige limestone.

BALTIC GREY LIMESTONE, BRUSHED

Brushed surface is used when there is a requirement for the tiles to have some grip such as in bathrooms, saunas and wet room areas. The brushed finishing gives Baltic Grey limestone a more blue-grey appearance.

BALTIC GREY LIMESTONE, SAWN

Sawn finish is used when using Baltic Grey limestone for external facades. This finish gives the stone the same blue-grey appearance as the brushed finish and is more rough to the touch. From close up the fine saw marks are visible on the stone.

ÅLAND GREY-BEIGE LIMESTONE

Åland Grey-Beige is widely used as a facade tile due to its good frost resistance. As its name suggests, the stone has a mixture of grey and beige colour tones. These colours blend very well together when the stone is used for exterior building facades.

GOTLAND GREY-BEIGE LIMESTONE

The Gotland Grey-Beige limestone rock bed begins near the island of Gotland and is quarried on the island of Saaremaa. As it’s name implies the stone is grey in colour with some lighter beige tones visible. Due to its high frost resistance this stone is widely used for exterior wall cladding and building stone.

LIVONIA LIMESTONE

This neutral, grey coloured limestone is an exciting recent discovery.

The subtle appearance of small fossils adds character to tiles and kitchen worktops as well as fireplace surrounds and the other bespoke items that we offer. The extreme hardness of Livonia limestone also makes it suitable for exterior use as façade panels as well as the more common interior applications.

Livonia limestone is quarried in deep underground chambers, a quarrying technique that has minimal environmental impact which is an increasingly important consideration when sourcing natural stone.

JAMTLANDS LIMESTONE

Jamtlands limestone is quarried from the hills around Östersund and Brunflo where the limestone was formed over 465 million years old and is reputedly the oldest and hardest limestone in Europe.

Swedish architects regularly specify this attractive and durable limestone for use in private homes as well as new office projects in all parts of Sweden and further afield. In recent years, Jamtlands limestone has also gained popularity in Norway and Finland.

ÖLAND GREY LIMESTONE

Öland Grey limestone was formed over 550 million years ago when the bedrock which is now Sweden lay south of the equator. It is for this reason that the fossils of many different warm water sea creatures and plants can be found in tiles made from Öland limestone.

The interesting fossils embedded within the stone give this limestone a uniqueness that only nature can create and is the reason why it is such a firm favourite with Swedish architects as well architects across  the whole Nordic region.

BALTIC GREEN LIMESTONE

Baltic Green Limestone is quarried close to the shores of the Baltic Sea and has similar properties to our Baltic Grey Limestone. The tiles are extremely hard, durable and are suitable for areas of high foot traffic such as office buildings, shopping centers and restaurants.

Baltic Green Limestone is popular with our Swedish clients for lining the interior of swimming pools because the mottled green colours are more harmonious with the surrounding forests. We supply a brushed or sand-blasted surface finish for the areas where extra grip is needed such as the steps into the pool.
