Travertine Pavers Pool Coping

Travertine Pavers Pool Coping

Introduction to our Travertine pavers, 30mm bullnose edge pool coping tiles.

Bullnose Travertine pavers pool coping: the edge of the tiles has been rounded, it makes it suitable for use as step treads and outdoor copping tiles around a swimming pool, it’s 30mm thick which gives a nice chunky look. Travertine colours vary a little bit, which adds to its natural beauty .

This Travertine is unfilled and tumbled, unfilled  meaning the small holes present in the stone haven’t been filled with cement, tumbled meaning put in the machine with small stones which gives the stone an antiqued look and softening of the edges giving a natural appearance. This stone is hard and dense, some types of Travertine has a lot of soft spots in them, so it’s a good idea to see the stock prior   to purchase, to be sure it’s a hard and dense stone. This particular Travertine is 30mm thick which is quite suitable for driveways as well as swimming pool surrounds.

Travertine Natural Stone Pool

Natural Stone Pool

The raw edge of this Travertine paver features around the edge of this pool.

This stone has been tumbled with small stones to give an authentic antique look and the small holes in the Travertine have been left unfilled.

Unfilled  meaning the small holes present in the stone haven’t been filled with cement, this type of Travertine is usually specified for exterior applications.

We recommend 30mm thick travertine for exterior projects and high wear areas. The 12mm Travertine tiles are used when there are height restrictions on the project. This thinner Travertine tile is also suitable for natural stone pools surround, however a 30mm thick tile should be used as a coping tile for both strength and aesthetic reasons.

Travertine is one of several natural stones that are used for paving patios and garden paths. It is sometimes known as travertine limestone or travertine marble; these are the same stone.

Travertine is one of the most frequently used stones in modern architecture. It is commonly used for façades, wall cladding, and indoor & outdoor flooring, as well as pool surround tiles.

Until the 1980s Italy had a near-monopoly on the world travertine market; now significant supplies are quarried in mainly Turkey, Iran, Mexico, and Peru.

Our Travertine is sourced directly from a family owned quarry in Turkey. Our close relationship with the quarry owners helps us to select a variation of Travertine that “stone lovers” really appreciate. This is important as Travertine varies enormously in density, size of the holes in the stone and colour. It is normal practice for the quarries to grade the stone according to its characteristics prior to export, (more compact and dense stone with smaller holes is charged at a higher rate).

Therefore it is important, when selecting Travertine, to relate quality with price. At Edwards Slate & Stone we hold large stocks of Travertine and invite inspection of the stock prior to purchase.
