Dubai-based Mac Al Gurg, a part of the Easa Saleh Al Gurg Group in the UAE, says Tristone’s certified hygienic non-porous solid surfacing solutions are emerging as the perfect choice for cladding, countertops and finishing applications in residential and commercial spaces.
The exclusive brand from Mac Al Gurg’s wide portfolio of renowned international principals offers quartz and acrylic surfaces that combine practicality, durability and elegance. Tristone is non-porous, resistant to heat, moisture and bacteria and can be thermoformed and joined seamlessly, says Rafat Al Fahoum, CEO of Mac Al Gurg.
Highlighting some of the properties of the solid surfacing solutions, he says: “Tristone’s consistent colours and patterns, which is glazed through the material, do not wear easily, and any damage can be easily repaired to revert to its original condition. In addition, these products are flame resistant, have Warringtonfire certification and comply with DIN and EN standards. Additionally, being non-porous, the products are hygienic and ward off mildew, bacteria as well as other harmful germs and are NSF-51 certified for food preparation areas. Due to inconspicuous seams, integrated sink, bowls and covered back splashes, Tristone is the perfect choice for both residential and commercial applications.”
In the UAE, Tristone is available a wide range of shades from white to high quality patterns. Mac Al Gurg also offers aesthetically appealing and practical space options with Tristone through customised designs.
“The fabrication process is similar to wood and it can be thermoformed and produced based on the client’s requirements,” Al Fahoum adds.
Mac Al Gurg has supplied Tristone for a wide range of prominent projects in the UAE. These include the conference and exhibition centres as well as the Romania and China Pavilions at the recently concluded Expo 2020, where it has been used for the counters and as cladding; the Dubai Hospital (wall cladding for bathrooms); and the Rixos The Palm Hotel Dubai (for bars, swimming pools, restaurants and reception areas). Tristone has also been used for the countertops at Sharjah Airport laboratory as well as at 20 Etisalat outlets in the UAE.
