Low-Silica Alternatives to Engineered Stone

In our commitment to innovative solutions, we recognise the significance of offering aesthetic choices that also prioritise health and safety. Join us on this journey as we explore alternatives that not only enhance your space but contribute to a safer environment.

Why Consider Low-Silica Alternatives?

Engineered stone has long been a popular choice for benchtops in Adelaide, flooring, and other applications due to its durability and aesthetic appeal. However, it’s crucial to be aware of the silica content in engineered stone, as prolonged exposure to high levels of silica dust can pose health risks, including respiratory issues.

At Uniq Stone, we prioritise your well-being, and that’s why we’re excited to introduce you to a range of low-silica alternatives that offer the same level of sophistication without compromising on safety.
