Marble is one of the oldest and finest materials used in house construction. Marblester benches are still used in Germany, but with a strongly decreasing tendency. The reason for this is the high sensitivity of all types of marble against scratches and acids. Stain impregnation used to protect the Marmorfensterbank thus very limited. For this reason, builders are increasingly turning to hard stones such as granite or gneiss, or agglomerated artificial stones, because these types of rock are much less sensitive to window sills. However, if you opt for marble sills, the advantages are obvious: a natural beauty that has been unparalleled for millennia and is surpassed by hardly any other stone.
Included in the price for the above mentioned Marblester benches is:
- A long edge and both heads ground and chamfered - on request including water groove at the bottom along and top across.
- Window bench surface sanded, also roughened or brushed in 3 cm. Undersides sawn. Minimum calculation width 20 cm, minimum calculation area 0,2 Qm. Max. Length on one piece 220 cm. Dimensional tolerances +/- 3 mm
It depends on the care!
