  • FLOOR TILES

    Clay floor tiles come in 3 different sizes. The most widely used is the Quarry tile 8 x 8 x 1 (inches). The tiles are heat resistant (upto 1250oC), hard wearing and acid resistant which makes them suitable for exterior use. The other sizes are 10x10x1 and 6x6x1.
    The Quarry tile is ideal for flat roof waterproofing as it withstands UV, helps insulation and screens the roof slab from water and traffic. As always in this application, a mild incline as per architect recommendation, has to be allowed. Quarry tiles used in interiors (Cotto tiles) create a rustic and warm feeling. They can be polished or sealed using a specialised sealant to prevent staining and fungal growth. Once laid, use a mild detergent to remove mortar chips and dust, then apply a mixture of linseed oil and turpentine to bring out its natural colour.

  • BRICKS

    BRICKS are the original masonry units for structures all over the world. Although they are not widely used in Kenya, (coral blocks take dominance as they are a lot cheaper to produce), they have their own ever growing market niche to satisfy. They are mainly used for fireplaces, floor paving and external facing.

  • GRILLS

    GRILLS are used as a walling unit, to allow ventilation and yet ensure security. They can be used for verandahs, windows and for balustrades.
