Bellandra Sandstone Tiles & Sandstone Pavers
Bellandra Sandstone Tiles - No Stone Less Processed & More Natural
Bellandra sandstone tiles look natural and are natural.
A measure of the environmental credentials of a building product is the involvement by man and process up to the point where it is fixed to a building.
On that basis this stone is a clear winner.
Unlike Australian sandstones it cleaves or splits quite naturally when hit with a chisel and doesn't need expensive machinery to saw or cut it.
That's why it is described as having a "natural split surface" - a quality very few sandstones possess.
It does mean the thickness of the material varies a bit - but that's quite natural.Make an enquiry
Stone Colours & Texture Enhanced with Natural Split Surface
Bellandra sandstone splits naturally along planes revealing pallets of vivid colour not seen in stone with processed surfaces.
The topography of the surface is intricate and has character, depth and grain - as you will see in the images on this page.
You will notice that the surface texture is most obvious when viewed at a tangent as illustrated in the photos below.
Slip Resistance - Guaranteed Safe
The great advantage of a natural split surface is its slip resistance; this surface certainly provides better traction when wet. Its slip resistance tests (published at the foot of the page) are as high as any outdoor surface. We rate them 5 stars for safety in outdoor settings.
For many pool owners, traction is not an issue if the pool is to be used by adults.Our clients are far more cautious though when children are involved.

Stone Quality Rating - Bellandra Sandstone (Natural Split Surface)
(5 stars = best quality)
|Porosity (5 stars = very low porosity)|
|Water absorption (5 stars = very low absorbency)|
|Flexural strength (dry)|
|Flexural strength (wet)|
|Resistance to salt attack (durability)|
Indicative Test Results
Slip resistance (AS/NZS 4586-2004) - 56V (risk of slipping when wet = very low)
Flexural strength - dried (ASTM C880) - 15.6 MPa
Flexural strength - wet (ASTM C880) - 13.5 MPa
Density (ASTM C97-02) - 2421 kg/m3
Water absorption (ASTM C97-02) by volume (porosity) - 6.8%
Water absorption (ASTM C97-02) by weight - 2.8%
Resistance to salt attack weight loss (AS/NZS 4456.10) - 0.4%
Resistance to salt attack classification (AS/NZS 4456.10) - A (suitable for wet, dry & salt attack cycles)
Resistance to salt attack (AS/NZS 4456.10) mode of decay - very slight surface pitting
NB The benchmarks for use of stone around salt water pools is 0.1% weight loss or less with a minimum slip resistance classification of W.

Contemplating Using Sandstone Around a Saltwater Pool?
If the answer is yes, then you need to read "When Good Stone Turns Bad" because there are risks involved and this article will help you achieve a successful outcome.
