A building is rarely silent inside. When it is not the lovely people, the enthralling music, or the entertainment, it is the architecture. Fascinating, right? After all, our home’s walls, floors, and other surfaces evoke something in our hearts. While most materials echo too loudly, there always comes an irregular surface that is so tranquil, like Compac Carrara, that you may as well stay mesmerised forever.
It introduces the fabled Compac Carrara – a premium white quartz stone with a hypnotic grey veining that evokes the calmness of nature unlike any other. That is what true beauty at your home does – it makes you fall in love with it every day for a lifetime. And who doesn’t want to be the owner of a proud English home with the most serene surfaces that turn even the gloomiest days joyous?
A Compac Carrara Worktop Is Easy to Use and Simplifies Your Daily Routines
But to call Compac Carrara simply a handsome stone material would be a great disservice. Compac Carrara keeps stains, scratches, and impact marks at bay effortlessly, thanks to the premium engineered quartz at its core. It is as if it recognises its beauty and bars anything from blemishing it. Once you install Compac Carrara worktops and surfaces, you’ll enjoy the tranquil ambience instead of scrubbing away tough stains. Now that’s what you call a 21st-century innovative material that takes care of itself and you!
Let it take care of your interiors with its brilliant luminosity and royal demeanour, allowing you to create timeless traditional and contemporary settings. And such a state-of-the-art surface requires sealing to keep it intact for years? Not the effectively non-porous Compac Carrara! Not surprisingly, it is one of The Worktop Library’s most highly prized stones and comes with a 30-year warranty. Peace of mind is guaranteed.
We told you that you would fall in love with it every day!
Description & Advantages
Home renovations in the UK are not a yearly affair. You will often only get a rare opportunity to transform your kitchen, bathroom, or living space for the rest of your life. So does it do justice to your home to refurbish it with average materials that neither evoke an emotion nor stay durable?
Unlike all the ordinary stones out there, Compac Carrara calls out to every architect, interior designer, and homeowner the moment they focus on it. Imagine bringing to life a serene and marvellous ambience. Imagine freeing yourself from worrying about the minute spills and stains in the kitchen. You deserve to live life to its fullest, after all! And when the sun comes out and it’s time to rest, you know you will find peace in the mood that the Compac Carrara creates.
Compac Carrara strives to recreate the appeal of Italy’s legendary Bianco Carrara marble as a resilient engineered quartz stone. Compac Carrara offers trademark greyish veins on a spectacular white background, making it the jewel in the Compac Nature range. Its marble-like appearance allows you to easily blend it with your interiors and give birth to a decadent space. This quality that transforms dull old corners into centres of attraction is truly underrated. Wondering what finishes you can get your hands on with this surface? Compac Carrara boasts two highly desirable ones: Polished and Glace (matt). You can craft lustrous interiors or go for a more understated yet commanding look.
Superior Performance & Superior Sustainability
But modern homeowners don’t only buy aesthetics. Therefore, Compac Carrara brings home ultra-resilience to wear and tear and durability that will never lose its shine. This engineered worktop combines 94% pure quartz minerals, 5% polymer agglomerate and 1% pigment. This quartz core is one of the most resilient materials on the planet, which embeds Compac Carrara with hallmarks of stain, scratch, and impact resistance. In addition, because it has zero porosity, unlike the marble it mimics, its surface is immune to bacterial infestation, viruses, seepage, or water absorption.
In addition, Compac Carrara quartz has an abrasion resistance rating of 26 -29mm, doubling that of marble, limestone and similar natural stones. But when it comes to surface hardness, its Moh’s scale rating of 6-7 puts it on par with most robust stones such as granite and quartzite.
As a bonus, you do not even need to seal, coat or wax Carrara worktops and surfaces, thus saving precious hours and money! Admit it: no one likes to spend their Sunday afternoons cleaning worktops, vanity tops, splashbacks, or other stone surfaces. A Compac Carrara stone works its magic by being extremely easy to clean and maintain. So who is a happy camper now?
A Versatile Carrara Quartz, Polished or Matte
The Worktop Library’s experienced stonemasons give you a plethora of fitting and installation options. But that comes after you choose from three Compac Carrara slab sizes: 3050 x 1440 mm, 3200 x 1550 mm, and 3300 x 1650 mm. Or go for a bespoke size made to order! Think large, jointless panels for a sleek, minimalistic design. The engineered quartz stone comes in 12 mm, 20 mm, and 30 mm. How lovely!
After all, you are bringing a product from Compac, The Surfaces Company– one of the world’s most prestigious manufacturers of conglomerate surfaces. A 30-year manufacturer warranty should seal the deal for you.
