Porphyry is exceptional.  With excellent flexural and compressive strength and low water absorption, porphyry is technically very competent.

The beautifully varied colours of porphyry setts provide a wonderful ability to mask dirt and stains and visually, the ability to sit happily alongside new and old materials alike.  A rich, yet gentle mix of purple, warm grey and orange tones make up this wonderfulvariation in colour.

Porphyry setts have a riven top surface and cropped sides.  This material is riven along natural layers and although the riven surface can be very flat it still has excellent non-slip qualities, so it is ideal for use around swimming pools and water features.

Porphyry is commonly used across Europe and will be most recognised for laying in fan and arc patterns.  Porphyry setts are superb for use in town centres, market places, driveways and patios.

Also available in paving/flag sizes.  Porphyry setts and paving are often used together and their variation in size will complement each other very well.

Suitable applications include market places, streetscapes, gardens, driveways and pathways.
