Quartz stone is a quite strong, reliable, and durable natural stone, resistant to any kind of external load. Stair steps made of quartz agglomerate are resistant to prolonged stress and abrasion and easy to clean. Due to a great choice of colors, everyone can choose an option to their taste.
The range of use of quartz stone steps is quite extensive. To date, they are especially popular among the owners of the country houses. Moreover, quartz stone steps are used in the shopping and entertainment centers, hospitals, bus, and railway stations, as well as many other public places with a large crowd of people and long-term external load on the steps. Quartz stone steps are used in the office premises, restaurants and cafes, hotels, public institutions, and banks.

Quartz steps are usually 20-30 mm thick. However, their thickness depends directly on the type of the staircase. For example, if the latter has a concrete frame, feel free to choose a 30-mm thick option. However, if the frame is iron, the thickness of material must not exceed 20 mm. For suspended staircases, choose 30-mm thick quartz steps.
