Limestone Gris Foncee
The Limestone Gris Foncee is a handmade brick of limestone. This natural stone is softer and more porous than marble and comes from the mountains of Morocco. This brick is 20 x 5 and 2 cm thick. The tiles can be used in any room, both on the wall and on the floor.
Good to know
This limestone has been used for centuries in the construction of houses and castles. However, it is a natural stone and is softer and more porous than the average tile. This can cause deterioration if the tile is exposed to a lot of water.
You can choose to treat the limestone with impregnation, as we do with the cement tile. This ensures that it is sealed off from moisture and dirt.
Installation of limestone
Limestone (natural stone) tiles require extra attention during installation and have their own instruction manual to help. At purchase, you will receive a step-by-step plan with instructions and points of attention. We recommend that you read this manual carefully before you install the tiles. Or hire a good tiler who is familiar with this type of tiles.
Limestone tiles can be installed in any room. They are suitable as floor tiles but can also be used on walls, even though they are often a little thicker than normal. They are ideal tiles for your hall, toilet, bathroom and kitchen but also for business purposes like in a hospitality establishment or in a shop. They give a real natural, warm look to a space. Please note that the tiles may need a treatment. It depends on the finish you want whether this is necessary or not. Ask our staff for advice!
Ordering, delivery and shipment
These tiles are supplied per box. For help in calculating the required quantities, expert advice or a customised quote, we will be happy to help you in one of our showrooms.
Orders can be delivered to your home via our transport company. The costs are calculated based on the weight and volume and are included in the order, if necessary.
There is also the option to collect the tiles from our warehouse in Breda or from our showroom in Utrecht. Collecting is only possible by appointment and when the tiles are in stock.
If you would like to see the tile in real life and you are not able to visit one of our showrooms, you can order a sample via our website.
The limestone tiles are easy to maintain. Weekly mopping with an acid-free agent such as our own Mopping Soap. This also gives extra protection to the surface.
Be careful with acids, these give ugly stains or discolourations which are difficult to remove later. As soon as you spill something, clean it off with water and do not leave anything on the tiles. This also applies to fats and other liquids. The sooner you clean, the better.
For grease stains or paint stains, etc., we have special cleaning agents available.
For heavy soiling, we recommend using Azule Dirt Remover. This degreaser deals with most dirt on various types of tiles.
