What is Travertine?
Travertine is a type of limestone characterised by its formation by mineral springs, travertine has been appreciated for its natural colours and used in construction for thousands of years. But there’s more to travertine than meets the eye and has many different finishes to help you achieve the look you are going for.
What is Brushed Travertine?
This look is obtained by brushing the surface of the stone with a brush or wire wheel until the preferred texture is achieved, utilising the natural look of travertine with a brushed finish. This textured finish features an unfilled exterior and provides a rustic yet sophisticated look.
What is Hammered Travertine?
This is a highly textured finish, achieved by the application of a hydraulic bush hammer to the surface. It is commonly used for external flooring applications, as its slip resistance rating is greater than most finishes.
A mechanical hammer hits the stone, creating uneven irregularities on the stone. A hammered finish leaves the surface of the stone textured with small indentations, suitable for anywhere indoors and outdoors. The roughness may be varied by using different levels of hammering.
