Victorian Bluestone

Premium Quality, Functional, Durable & High Aesthetic Value

Bluestone’s distinctive tone and minimalist aesthetic beauty connects new places with heritage and presents opportunities to embed meaning in materiality. Victorian bluestone has many beneficial attributes that make it a classic choice to enhance a project, place or space. It is a widely used, versatile and well-loved Australian material found on the streets and pathways of capital cities around the country and currently a government mandated product in Victoria. Bluestone is an applicable solution to many design challenges and will ensure a project withstands the test of time.

Durability

Bluestone, also known as Basalt, is volcanic stone that has developed its density and texture over millions of years. It is a hard and enduring natural stone, which adjusts well to the environment and resists extreme weather conditions.

Longevity

Bluestone’s various attributes all contribute to its enviable longevity. It has been used for centuries to shape places and landscapes, and has proven to be a very reliable, long-lasting stone. The fact that our bluestone is local makes it even more well-adapted to our climate.

Slip Resistance

Bluestone has one of the highest possible non-slip ratings when compared with other popular tiling materials such as concrete. This makes it highly OH&S compliant and is one of the key reasons it has been widely government mandated.
