Warnigs

Our products are conglomerates of natural aggregates and coloured pigments, and hence we cannot give any guarantees on colour uniformity between different
batches. The sand-blasting may not be consistent in batches supplied at different times. It should be pointed out that certain items may appear to have whitish halos (efflorescence) due to calcium hydroxide on the surface reacting with atmospheric CO2. If rapid removal is desired, wash the product with a 5-10% solution of
hydrochloric acid in water, distributing it evenly with a sweeping brush and rinsing it off thoroughly with copious amounts of water. In this regard, precisely because efflorescence is a natural phenomenon which disappears over time, the supplier will not consider any complaints arising in relation to this.
It is recommended 1 mm distance between each element.
For a possible complaint, it is advisable to check the condition of the product
before installation. In any case, the guarantee is restricted to just replace defective, not installed product, and does not cover the installation.
