Plus, it’s remarkably easy to clean and maintain. In short, it’s a luxurious material like no other.
PRACTICAL. BECAUSE PROJECTS ARE FOR PEOPLE
Everyday life is never as predictable as you’d like. Your clean surfaces will invariably get dirty. There’ll be the occasional spillage and hard objects will be scraped or dropped on them from time to time. It’s a good thing then, that the quartz in OKITE® is the fourth hardest mineral known to man. OKITE® is five times stronger and more durable than granite, making it remarkably tough to scratch.As it never needs sealing, it’s also surprisingly stain resistant, offering far higher levels of protection against oil, coffee, wine and soft drinks, for example OKITE® is also certified as a safe and hygienic product for use in food preparation areas. Its non-porous surface resists staining and prevents absorption of moisture or food which can harbour harmful bacteria. As a result, there’s no need to use any protective chemicals, making it safer for you and your family.
PURE, SIMPLE ELEGANCE
OKITE has an unmistakably Italian quality that’s apparent at first glance. Understated style, you might call it – exquisitely crafted, beautifully finished – to give your home a subtly stunning appeal. As if that wasn’t enough, you also have the enviable choice of a seductive array of colors – immaculately polished or left in an attractively natural honed finish – which can be edged in a variety of ways.
