THE PLANES OF WALLS AND COUNTERTOPS – THE MASSIVE VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL SURFACES OF N INTERIOR – ARE KEY VISUAL FOCAL AREAS THAT PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHOWCASE PREMIUM MATERIALS.
Dekton Ultracompact Surfaces
An innovative slab material that presents the aesthetic interest of natural stone and the countertop wear-ability of quartz, Dekton is exciting and fresh, with its own unique high-performance characteristics. Made from a variety of minerals including silica, Dekton’s constituents are bonded by compaction under extremely high pressure and temperature rather than with the use of synthetic binders. For this reason, among others, Dekton is considered a “green” product and Cosentino publishes their Greenguard Certifications online in their product catalogue. Dekton is covered by a 25 year warranty.
Dekton has excellent freeze-thaw tolerance, so it is suitable for outdoor use – even in Toronto (the Cosentino flagship store in the Castlefield design district is clad in Dekton). The material has tremendous wear tolerance: it does not scratch, stain easily nor etch (mark with common household acids such as lemon juice, wine, vinegar, etc.). Consequently, it is easy to maintain and clean and is highly heat resistant. Of interest to those looking for an attractive and durable countertop material, slabs are 126” long by 56” wide in 2 cm thickness and can be finished with standard edge details. (Dekton is also offered in 0.8 and 1 cm thicknesses for a variety of applications.)
Dekton Design Style
Dekton is physically appealing in that it has a ceramic tactility that doesn’t appear synthetic in the same way quartz does. A selection of Dekton samples in a range of styles are on view at York Fabrica’s showroom, to help clients realize new design projects in a practical way.
