The BBS natural stone range includes Norwegian Quartzite – Alta Quartzite; a natural building material, quarried in the mountains surrounding the Alta Fjord in Norway, far north in the polar circle.
It has a pleasant grey-green appearance and a natural soft lustre. Being a riven material, it has colour and texture variations that lend themselves to modern architecture.
Alta Quartzite can be used for:
– cladding: interior as well exterior
Alta Quartzite is naturally non-slip and extremely hard wearing making it suitable for trafficked areas as well as pedestrian paving areas.
Alta Quartzite is extremely suitable for exterior and interior applications. Architects love its ability to work well with other materials and often use the stone in combination with wood, glass, steel and aluminum. Alta Quartzite also is available with an impressive honed or polished surface. BBS have supplied this material to numerous projects around the UK including Wigan and the Canary Wharf section of the Cross Rail scheme. Contact us for more information or to discuss requirements.
