We have been producing granite worktops since the early 1990s and have produced in excess of 400,000+ linear metres...that's a lot of kitchens! We were the first Indian company to achieve successful quantity granite worktop production and perceptive wholesale purchasers and project specifiers worldwide appreciate our commitment to the highest quality production.
You can view our Black Galaxy granite quarry here.Granite Worktop Lengths
It is important to note that we maximise the production from every block by shipping free length worktop strips with a minimum length of 2400mm (94.5") up to a maximum of 3200mm (126"). If your requirement is for fixed-length strips the cost will be higher since we shall inevitably have more waste than usual.
600~700 mm granite worktop strips are packed ten to a crate.
Standard granite worktop sizes available are:
2400+ x 600 x 30 mm (94.5" x 23.6" x 1.18") Polished top surface & all four edges with pencil bevel/eased edge.
Standard granite backsplash size available is:
2400+ x 110 x 20 mm (94.5" x 4" x 0.75") Polished top surface, one long edge & two ends with pencil bevel.
Very occasionally extra long slabs are available, the largest we have ever shipped were 4500 mm (177.2"/14.75ft) in length!Black Galaxy Granite Quality Standards
Grading standards for Black Galaxy Granite is generally accepted to be as follows:
Q1. Black Galaxy Premium/First Choice : Granite clean of any visible veining.
It is important to note that there is a limited quantity of Premium Galaxy granite available, the vast majority of worktops/slabs shipped by ALL processors is of the Classic Galaxy granite. Classic is lower in cost than Premium.
These lines do not affect the integrity of the material and quite often cannot even be seen except from a specific viewing angle or under very bright lights, certainly, insofar as a large area of flooring for a shopping mall is concerned, our Black Galaxy Classic Granite is acceptable and appreciated.Granite Inspection
All our granite worktop and slab production is independently inspected with their report emailed direct to the buyer prior to shipment approval.
The image to the right shows the QC (Quality Control) inspector measuring large Premium Black Galaxy granite random slabs prior to crating and shipment to the customer. Please click on the image to enlargen.
Black Galaxy slabs are available in many different dimensioned sizes and a massive cost saving can be made by shipping smaller sizes already prefabricated for project supplies.Granite Worktops In Wooden Crates Ready For Loading
As yet we have still not discovered anything better than traditional wooden crates for shipping in a container. Each crate is custom-made since free-length worktop strips dictate this method. The crates are suitable for outside storage until needed. All containers are fumigated after loading therefore you should not receive any unwanted surprises.
