Granite Worktops

Granite worktops are as popular as ever and bring timeless beauty into every kitchen. Granite is one of the hardest materials on earth, formed millions of years ago beneath the earth’s surface. Granite worksurfaces are extremely hard wearing & won’t scratch under normal use and are easy to clean & maintain, making them ideal worktops for kitchens & bathrooms. Adds value to property and is one of the most searched terms when looking for a new property.

More than 30 standard granite worksurface colours are now available.

Producing the rustic finish creates minute fissures in the stone, which increase the liquid absorption & its retention of dirt & pollutants. This increase in the materials porosity will allow substances such as cooking oil & grease to penetrate on contact resulting in a stain that would be clearly evident. Please ensure that potential customers are aware that these finishes require high maintenance in the form of sealing & cleaning & a signed disclaimer is required before an order can be accepted.

Honed Finish

A process of flattening the surface of the granite, to give a worktop with a flat low sheen & a granite work surface without reflection. Granite worktops will have a matte like appearance.

Flamed & Brushed Finish

Extreme heat is applied to the granite work surface to create a deeply textured surface. This granite work surface is then also brushed with a coarse wire rotary brush resulting in some of the roughness being removed – a textured, lightly rippled & smooth finish to the granite worktop is achieved.

Leather Finish also available on some products, please contact our Sales office for further information

A worktop finish resulting from treating the stone surface with a coarse wire rotary brush, creating a worktop with a smooth but undulated, leather like finish.

Double Radius *

Single Radius *

Curved

 

* Internal profile edges on all edge detail other than bevel edge must have a radius of at least 60mm. Bevel edges don’t have this constraint as they are hand finished.

End Panels


Normal Butt Joint

The normal joint for these materials will be a butt joint ending with a 5mm overhang.


Granite – Upstands


100mm Upstand

60mm Upstand

 

Upstands should ideally be 100mm high, as material less than this height is extremely fragile. Upstands are not normally cut from the same slab as the worksurfaces, therefore an exact colour match is not possible. Granite upstands are straight and rigid, gaps will be visible where there are variations in the wall profile. Plastering or tiling should ideally be completed after the worksurface installation.


Granite – Cutouts


Unpolished

Polished

Square Polished

Recessed Hob

Belfast

 

A minimum of 120mm is required between two hob cutouts.
A minimum of 50mm from the hob or sink cutout to the front edge.
A minimum of 70mm is required between two sink cutouts.


Granite – Drainer Grooves


Recessed Drainer

5 Groove Drainer

 

5 groove drainer or 3mm recessed drainer available. Recessed Drainers are sometimes duller than the worksurface


Granite – Jointing


100mm Upstand

60mm Upstand

 

A scribed joint (sometimes referred to as a Masons Mitre Joint) is required when making a joint where an Imperial, Bullnose, Ovolo, Milano & Venetian edge is specified.

This jointing method enables the edge detail to be continued around the corner.

Granite – Technical Specifications

Introduction

Formed millions of years ago, granite is one of the hardest substances on earth, rating 7 on Mohs hardness scale.

Joints

Granite joints are finished with a small ariss to the top edge. Silicone sealant is applied to prevent water ingression.

Tolerance

Tolerance in granite is ±2mm

Thermal expansion

Due to thermal expansion granite can expand up to 1mm per metre. A gap of at least 3mm should be left at each end of the worktop when fitted and filled with decorators caulk. When granite is joined to other materials (such as glass, steel or wood) an elastic type of adhesive, for example polyurethane, is required for expansion.

Overhangs and supports

Any overhang extending more than 300mm must be supported.

Hob and Sink cutouts

Granite sink / hob cut outs are barred front & back (fitting of steel support bars to give additional support to cutouts), Without steel supports bars, the length of a cut out is reduced considerably. Large cut outs need to be scored and cored on occasions. This leaves the corners of the cutout in place, ready for removal on-site by the installer. Granite is susceptible to ‘blowing out’.

This occurs when contact is made with the material whilst cutting or grinding. This is very common in large particled granite. ie. we fill and seal the affected areas with epoxy resin (colour may vary) to ensure the material is not left with any sharp edges or ‘chips’.

Slips (kit form) around sink and hob cutouts are fitted in certain circumstances, if tops are too long and depending upon type and size of cutout etc.

  • A minimum of 120mm is required between two hob cutout.
  • A minimum of 100mm is required between hob and sink cutouts.
  • A minimum of 70mm is required between two sink cutouts.
  • Sink cutouts are placed 50mm from the worktop front edge.

Internal radius

Internal profile edges on all edge detail other than bevel edge must have a radius of at least 60mm. Bevel edges don’t have this constraint as they are hand finished.

Upstands

Upstands should ideally be 100mm high, as material less than this height is extremely fragile. Upstands are not normally cut from the same slab as the worksurfaces, therefore an exact colour match is not possible. Granite upstands are straight and rigid, gaps will be visible where there are variations in the wall profile. Plastering or tiling should ideally be completed after the worksurface installation.

Scratches

Granite is highly scratch resistant but not scratch proof. Small scratches of less than 25mm in length are considered ‘within tolerance’ and are considered acceptable.

Staining

Although Granite is one of the least absorbent stone’s, it can still be stained by grease, wine, coffee, nicotine, fruit juices and other strongly coloured substances. Granite worksurfaces are sealed upon installation and must be resealed every 6 months. Any spillages must be removed immediately as delay could result in permanent damage.

Stainless Steel Sinks

Please specify the preferred undermounting of Stainless Steel Sinks. Silicone sealant may be rendered ineffective when plumbing the sink in, it is important that the sink is re-sealed by the plumber, or the 12 months guarantee will be invalid if the work is not carried out. If a waste disposal unit is fitted to an undermounted sink after installation, additional support will be required, otherwise your warranty may be invalidated.

Handling

For installations you will need to supply additional labour on orders, which have worktops weighing above 150kg. Every additional 75kg requires an extra person to assist with lifting. Size of ‘scant’ or ‘slab’, is a major factor in selecting the maximum usable length of a work surface. Approximately 2.8m x 1.3m is the largest work surface we are able to manufacture, this may be drastically reduced if you require a cutout, especially in granite with larger crystals. Due to the weight of granite, please ensure that your units are level and securely fixed.

Granite – Aesthetics

Pitting and Veining

As Granite is a natural stone, pitting and veining will occur in random distribution of swirls. Subtle variations in shade or areas of contrast will also appear within the body of the worksurface.

Fissures, Blemishes and Natural Flaws

Some level of what could be referred to as spots or blotches are inherent in the material. Small fissures are a common feature in any Granite and these natural flaws were present at the rock formation.

Colour Variation (Drainers)

Drainer grooves and recessed drainers may be duller than the rest of the polished surface. Colour matching is not always possible as granite can vary dramatically throughout each scant. Samples provided should be used as a guide only. We will not accept any colour match issues from material that has come from the same scant.

These items are heat resistant but we do not recommend putting a hot pan directly onto these items as it will damage the worktop. We generally recommend customers purchase the Unika Worktop Protector Rods which you can place hot pans onto.
