Travertine is a crystallised form of limestone. This beautiful sedimentary rock is characterised by its natural surface full of pits and voids, as well as the unique lines and patterns on its surface, offering a wide variety of colours and shades.
At Artmar, we have a broad range of Turkish travertine pavers available in our warehouse. Since our products are manufactured from 100% natural stone, clients can expect some of the best quality travertine pavers in all of Sydney and surrounds.
Interestingly enough, the colour of travertine is susceptible to metamorphosis after it’s been manufactured. For example, pale shades may become brighter due to the oxidation of iron salts in the stone’s structure. We have travertine pavers in a range of colour variants available at Artmar, ranging from grey, silver, and mocha hues.
Travertine is recognised as a hard wearing and long-lasting stone, that can withstand both hot and cold temperature extremes. Since the ancient times, travertine has been used as part of construction and flooring projects due to its beauty and strength. Nowadays, travertine is one of the most popular natural stones used for indoor and outdoor decoration purposes. This is due to its affordability, as well as its low maintenance and cleaning requirements. It is suited for flooring, as well as paving, and is often applied around swimming pools.
For paving, travertine pavers are a viable alternative to marble or even granite. Travertine pavers are the perfect option for applications next to pools, or for patios, due to their heat resistant ability and slip-resistance. Many families choose travertine pavers to prevent serious accidents around the pool.
What makes travertine such a viable, all-inclusive option to be used for outdoor paving, is that it combines all the advantages of natural stone – solidity, durability, sophistication, and eco-friendliness.
