THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF MARBLE EMPIRES
Formed deep within the earth’s crust, Granite is an intrusive
igneous rock that lies as deep as 50km below the surface. Its
grainy structure and strength comes from the many crystalline
structures which form as magma slowly cools and is responsible
for its heat resistant properties. At Tekno Granite we excavate
and process this marvellous stone bringing both function and
grandeur to businesses and homes around the world.
The first step in processing our granite is the quarry. It is at this
stage where we must remove the layers of earth and vegetation
so as to expose the stone. Once this is achieved, the deposits
are cut into blocks using the latest in heavy machinery such
as diamond-wire cutters, drills and hydraulic splitters. These
blocks of ‘raw’ stone are then loaded onto transport vehicles
and taken to our factory where the magic of this natural stone is
revealed for the world to enjoy.
