"Everything in the world is afraid of time,
but even time is afraid of the Egyptian pyramids" - well-known
aphorism says. How many man-made products passed to non-existence,
were destroyed by inevitably varying nature! Wood decays, iron becomes
rusty, and only natural stone observes this changeable world haughty
during thousand years! There is no more stronger and reliable natural
material in the world.
And among all types of stones, granite always was well-known symbol
of durability. First signs of its destruction granite starts to
find out more than 500 years later, therefore not in vain it is
called 'an eternal stone'. It takes all kinds of mechanical and
thermal processing, it is well split and accepts high quality polishing.
Just for this reason production made by "RED STONE" Ltd.
is necessary for everyone who wants to touch to Eternity.
"RED STONE" Ltd. manufactures and sells
split granite sett of various sizes and colours from natural stone
mined from Leznikovsky granite quarry and processed on the Italian
high tech equipment (up to 1000 t/month).
Our production finds wide application in construction of bridges,
quays, roads, pavements, garden paths, due to the mineral properties
and ecological safety of this natural stone.
What are the advantages of split granite stone
cubes before other road coverings (asphalt, for example)?
a) Strength and durability.
Sett made from natural granite, has more stronger structure in comparison
with other materials, that is very important in our climatic zone,
it stands temperature drop and serves much longer than other coverings.
Moreover, under the natural climatic heating, stone blocks are not
softened and keep their strength properties. Life time of sett is
no less than 250 years.
Granite, in comparison with marble, does not demand additional protection
against mechanical damages and influence of acidiferous liquids.
b) Ecological compatibility.
In contrast to asphalt, stone cubes does not evolve harmful volatile
compounds, and also does not disturb natural needs of green plants
in gaseous and water exchange and that is favourably effects on
the city appearance and peoples' health. Water do not stay long
on stone blocks, and it's very important for pedestrians. Besides,
the rise of subsoil water level is excluded.
c) Convenience in repairing.
If You need to carry out any repair work (for example, to lay underground
communications, etc.) it is easy to disassemble paving slab, then
carry out necessary works and lay it again. So it is recommended
to use sett in the places where underground communications run.
d) Aesthetic beauty.
The colour spectrum of cubes may be various, but granite sett do
not lose its colour richness in the course of time. The pattern
of each stone is never repeated, and it makes the road coverings
original and prestigious.
The cost of sett paving is not much more expensive than the cost
of asphalt. However, due to its strength and durability, it does
not demand any repair or updating. And in a year of its operation
the difference in the price will become covered. In future working
costs will be lower, than as for an asphalt covering.
