Description

Quarry Naturals let you choose from a group of solid colors or slightly-striated, visually-textured "flash" surfaces, all with a natural, handcrafted look. Durable and long-wearing, Quarry Naturals' slip-resistant cushioned edge and unglazed surface make them eminently suitable for outdoor patio and pool areas as well as floors and walls.
 

NOTES:

  • Please specify abrasive grain when ordering.
  • Abrasive grain particles added to Quarry Naturals give improved slip resistance for many types of footwear, depending on maintenance conditions.
  • Use of a latex modified thin-set is recommended for installation.
  • All or select items within this series are made in the USA.
  • Abrasive grain available in N01,N03, and N46 in 6" x 6" and 8" x 8".
  • Abrasive grain not available on most trim shapes.
  • Q3565U, Q3585U, QB3565U & QCRL3565U not available in Flash colors.
  • Special care should be taken when grouting with dark pigmented colors. A grout release is recommended to prevent finely powdered pigments from lodging in the pores of the surface. Use of modified latex thin-set is recommended for proper installation.
  • We do not recommend light colored Quarry tile (N03, N46) in commercial kitchens unless properly sealed or with use of a grout release. It is necessary to follow the proper procedures and recommendations of grout and maintenance product manufacturers.
  • (1) & (2) notations indicate price group, (1) being the least expensive.
  • Quarry Tile Maintenance: - For a stain finish, clean and buff using a heavy-duty, general-purpose cleaner. For best results, use cleaner before tile is put to use, as well as for continuing maintenance. - For immediate stain protection and shine, use a high-gloss surface finish. - For a natural look with long-term stain protection, use a water-based silicone sealer.
