The process

FINELY FORMED

Unlike granite that is cut from huge, natural blocks, quartz worktops are formed into slabs by experts, not nature. That doesn’t make it any less impressive.

Step1

Tough stuff

Quartz is an incredibly tough mineral that is crushed and mixed with resin and pigments, and then transformed into stunning worktops that are resistant to cracks, stains and heat. See what we mean about impressive?

PRESSING MATTERS

Once formed, the slabs are pressed and cured.

Step2

Heated for strength

It is the curing process, which heats the slabs to around 90ºC, which give the worktop its strength and durability.

POLISHED UP

The slab is polished for the first, but not the final time where it is produced.

Step3

Tactile touch

Polishing highlights a brilliance of light and brings out the naturally smooth touch of the stone. It encapsulates the purity of the quartz.

Hit the road

This stage of the supply chain requires great care; whatever the route or mode of transport involved. The cargo is precious.

Step4

Setting the standard

Say hello to the team. A determined bunch. Nothing gets past them. Each piece of quartz the team inspect and approve is all important.

At PWS, we set our own internal standards, which are more strenuous than current European quality standards. If it doesn’t stand up to our detailed inspections, it will be rejected. They’re like a team of Sherlocks searching for imperfections. If there are any, they’ll find them.

Step6

Like the cut of your jib

Our cutters are responsible for the most advanced saw line in the industry. Their machines cut a worktop to a tolerance of plus or minus 1mm. Precision really does matter.

Step7

Polished perfect

Our small band of polishing impresarios still hark back to the days of elbow grease but the way they conduct their machines is no less impressive. Each of our polishers has six edge polishing positions that deliver flawless results, each and every time - even on the most intricate job

WHAT A FINISH!

Absolutely nothing leaves the factory until it has passed the uncompromising eyes of our finishers. Our very own gatekeepers. With great power comes great responsibility and our hand finishers will check over every piece and every element of the worktop, giving it the final, individual finish that each quartz worktop deserves.

We only wet polish which provides a far greater, deeper shine than dry polishing.

Inspect yourself

We set the highest internal quality standards at each stage of the production process and the final inspection team is kept on their toes checking dimensional accuracy, joint matching, straightness, twisting, bowing and grain direction. They always rise to the challenge.

Step9

Stellar installation

Worktops of such quality and style deserve to be installed by the very best installation teams. Our installation standards and the quality manual that accompany the process ensures that your quartz worktops are installed to perfection.

It makes sense to get your worktop installed by the experts. For the perfect finish we use resin for the worktop joints to add finish strength and a durability un-parralled to other methods.
