Elaboration and renovation of sepulchral vaults, cenotaphs also requires a responsible, serious professional competence, therefore we prepare burial places with all respects towards customer requirements.
Usually, customers prefer cost efficient solutions, therefore, we also prepare urn tombstones with due foresight taking uniqueness and durability into considaration.
Apart form the ornamental decorative elements, our marble, limestone and granite stock are increasingly popular in the building industry, as well. They are durable and also aesthetic materials perfectly suitable for fences, windowsills or doorsills. The agglomerated stone, quartzite and onyx are gaining currencey in interior architecture, not only giving the kitchen or bathroom elements a stylish character, but also providing prestige and longterm usability. Our primary aim is to satisfy unique requests, which may differ depending on the wide spectrum of the taste of our customers. We offer several colors and forms, considering the unique or general elaboration of the outdoor or indoor elements.
Apart from the cenotaphs, our company is often asked to renovate monuments, pedestrian precincts or antique fences and cornices, for which we use the above mentioned materials. These elements often reoccur among our orders as floorings, terrace pavements or even in the form of pillars.
Granite is a common type of felsic intrusive igneous rock that is granular and phaneritic in texture. The word "granite" comes from the Latin word granum, meaning grain. It is the second toughest rock after the diamond. It has gained widespread use throughout human history, used as a construction stone even in prehistoric. Nowadays, it is mostly used as tombstones, decoration, pillars, pavements (curbstone).
Marble is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals (over 50%), most commonly calcite or dolomite. Pure marble contains more than 95% carbonate mineral (calcite). and silicate marble contains 50-95%. Its structure is solid and granular, colored varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities. Marble is an easily formable natural rock that demonstrates strength and elegance. It is a resistant, easy to carve material that can be used in many ways. Due to its excellent characteristics, used as flooring and wall covering, it provides unique, exclusive appearence to the interiors. Many elements can be produced out of marble: washstand, counter, stairs, windowsill, elevation cover, floor tile, tabletop or mantel.
Limestone is a monomineralic sedimentary rock with a minimum 90% content of the minerals calcite and aragonite, which are different crystal forms of calcium carbonate (CaCO3). The remaining part is mainlyconsisting of other carbonate minerals, quartz or silex, clay and organic material. As the dolomite content of the limestone increases, the rock gradually evolves into dolomite.
Solid limestone is a strong, frost-proof variant with shell-shaped breakeges. It is easy to carve, and polish, often used as paving and decorating stone. In Hungarian stonecraft market it is often mislabelled as ’marble’, however it is not a recrystallized rock.
4. Artificial stone:
Artificial stone is a name for various kinds of synthetic stone products used from the 18th century onward. As well as artistic uses, they have been used in building construction, civil engineering work, and industrial uses such as grindstones. Cast stone can be made from white and/or grey cements, manufactured or natural sands, carefully selected crushed stone or well graded natural gravels and mineral coloring pigments to achieve the desired colour and appearance while maintaining durable physical properties which exceed most natural cut building stones. In order to reach higher abrasion resistant and frost-proof artificial stone, it is often compressed. It can be mechanically compressed then dried out in a quick drying chamber; or it can be compressed in templates on a percussion table. These artificial stones are used as tombstone, outdoor pavement, railing, sill, stairs, plinth, pillar, terrazzo. The surface can range from roughly grinded to polished; stairs are usually treated with anti-skid measures. The white grains of the granular structure are from grinded limestone.
5. Agglomerated stone:
Agglomerated stone is a composite material made of crushed stone bound together by an adhesive, pressed into slabs or larger blocks. A mixture of approximately 95% grinded stone and 5% polyester resin. The characteristics of the product produced this way are similar to – or often outperforms – those of the natural limestone and marble. Its color is reliably the same. The use of the agglomerated stone is the most current in the buiding industry. From some of these stones, even 3 cm wide and 3 m long sills can be produced without breaking. The color of the agglomerated stones is always the same by types, there are no color variations among the blocks. It can be applied in every place where natural stones or ceramic tiles would be used as covering. The agglomerated stone is fat and acid sensitive, therefore the use of corrosive chemicals shall be avoided. It loses glaze in the outdoors after 10-15 years. Suggested use as: outdoor and interior windowsills, interioir and outdoor stairs, decorative elements, interior wall and floor covering, counters, taple tops. The use of stone impregnating agent is recommended.
It is semiprecious stone, the most exclusive stone type. Its appearence is completely unique, every slab has different patterns. Onyx can be a truly extra element in the homes of high standard. Counters, coffee tables, table tops can be made out of onyx, and with backlight you can create a special atmosphere to your bathroom, pool, living room and any other premises.
