Natural Blue Pennant stone is a lithic sandstone. Typically, the stone consists of 60% quartz grain with the remainder being fragments of schist and quartzite. Blue Pennant has a high resistance to weathering and is extremely hard wearing and durable.
Slip Resistance – Pennant sandstone remains amongst the very best slip resistant paving available and the benefit is that they retain their non-slip properties as they wear.
Colour & Textures – natural Blue Pennant stone is extracted from beds which occur naturally at the quarry face. It is available in a riven format and is completely unique in colour which will vary from rust and ochre browns through to the coolest blues and greys. Variations in colour and texture are a natural feature of the stone. Some on-site dressing may be required.
Strength – Pennant sandstone values have traditionally varied but Welsh Blue Pennant stone was always regarded as the best.
Durability – The stone has been independently tested and is completely frost resistant and has extremely low abrasion values making it one of the most durable materials available.
