Porphyry Stone
Special Pieces

Treads, risers and pool borders

The use of porphyry is quiet standard in the construction of stairways. The elements used for treads and risers are obtained from irregular slabs with natural cleft surface with sawn or split edges. The surfaces available are flamed, honed, brushed sand blasted or polished.

These pieces are also used for paving, cladding, window-sills, coverings, skirting and also decorating elements such as washbasin tops and kitchen counters.
Pool coping are essentially the same elements as treads or risers but with a flamed surface and usually with a bull-nose edge.
