Materials

Sandstone is a traditional fireplace material available in 30, 50 and 80mm thick slabs. A uniform close grained sandstone often with areas of dark flecks. The finish is smooth but without any traces of a shine. The surface is however fairly porous and in a “dirty” environment such as an open fire or stove, treatment is essential to prevent it absorbing soot and ash.
