Louhi quartzes

The wide choice of colours offered by quartzes gives homes a trendy image. Light, single-coloured alternatives have been popular already for a while. The newest quartz colours available at Louhi Kivitasot range are the colours of the Metropol range, where the surface of a quartz top is matt structure. The designer of the material has sought for the charm of antiquity and wear in the spirit of Venice, Italy. Each and every slab is unique.

The heat-resistance of quartz material is limited, and we recommend using always a pot holder. Quartz is a very dense material, and therefore, dirt always sticks to the surface of the top without being absorbed into the material. This means that dirt can easily be removed from the surface of the top. It is possible to manufacture longer continuing tops of the material.

All colours are available with the alternative with the thickness of 30 mm, and additionally, the colours Louhi New Pure White and Louhi Carrara in the lighter version of 20 mm.
