The product has many aesthetic- and performance-related qualities and uses. L’Altra Pietra® is the Bergamo company’s through-body sintered stone solution for outdoor floors. A surface that guarantees excellent performance, practicality and functionality. All in just 2 cm of thickness. The product comes in a wide range of different-sized tiles and aesthetically-speaking is extremely faithful to natural stone: veins, imperfections, colours, everything comes together to recreate the excellence and elegance of the most popular stone materials. With the technical and performance-related advantages that make it the ideal choice for furnishing and covering outdoor spaces. 48 products in 11 different sizes recreate the most used stones on the market, from Italy and beyond: a highly expansive collection that ranges from slate and porphyry to Botticino marble and quartzite, from Jerusalem stone to Grigioni. Unlike natural stone, which has limits connected with frost-resistance, wear and tear, size and tensile strength, as well as the limits on the quantities of sizes it is possible to supply at some worksites, L’Altra Pietra® guarantees excellent performance levels in all respects. In fact, the stones are resistant to temperature changes and frost, non-slip and easy to lay because they are straight. They can also be used on driveways thanks to their optimum mechanical resistance and resilience properties, which guarantee excellent tensile strength and make them suitable for any form of outdoor use. One the main advantages of L’Altra Pietra® is its high tensile strength of T11. A very high value for a 2 cm sintered stone tile. A perfect surface also thanks to its aesthetic qualities and performance: it doesn’t require any type of treatment because as well as being highly colour resistant to light, and coloured throughout the body, it also has unlimited duration.
L’ALTRA PIETRA® COMBINE
Thanks to the COMBINE versions with thickness reduced to 1 cm, designed and dedicated for indoor use, L’Altra Pietra® elegantly furnishes spaces while ensuring the continuity of indoor and outdoor floor tiles: the Arena Holz series, for example, reproduces the much-loved wood effect to make spaces even more welcoming.
The floors can be installed dry on gravel, sand or grassy foundations, a system that is particularly suitable for solving water drainage problems in soil foundations but also in cement foundations, such as on terraces or balconies, with gluing onto screed, making it possible to obtain perfectly stable and exceptionally resistant surfaces that are able to support the transit and parking of cars. Alternatively, they can be laid as floating floors on a raised support so that electric wires and water pipes can pass through the cavity below. This is the ideal choice for applications in commercial spaces and offices.
Ideal for applications in industrial buildings, offices, hotels, the service industry, squares, residential areas, terraces and swimming pools to create walkways or paths on lawn or gravel. In redevelopment and refurbishing work L’Altra Pietra® is the perfect solution for substituting a dated concrete floor with an economical yet high-quality replacement.
