London-based stone experts are taking proactive measures amid rising health concerns regarding quarts counter manufacture.

May 16, 2024 - In response to mounting health concerns surrounding engineered stone countertops, London-based family-run business SurfaceCo has announced proactive measures to prioritize safety and present natural stone alternatives to its clients. With decades of experience in the stone industry, SurfaceCo is committed to ensuring the well-being of its workers and customers while meeting the high demand for quality stone worktops.

The recent ban on engineered stone countertops in Australia following reports of silicosis-related deaths among workers has raised significant alarm within the industry. Silicosis, a long-term lung disease caused by inhaling crystalline silica dust, has prompted calls for stricter regulations worldwide. While no ban is currently in place in the UK, SurfaceCo acknowledges the seriousness of the issue and is taking decisive action to address it.

"We take the health and safety of our employees and customers very seriously," commented a company spokesperson. "SurfaceCo is committed to providing safe working environments and offering alternative options that prioritize the well-being of everyone involved."

SurfaceCo specializes in bespoke stone worktop templating, fabrication, and installation, ensuring each project is custom-tailored to meet individual requirements and budgets. With a team of experienced professionals and a wide range of materials, including natural stone, SurfaceCo provides clients with innovative, reliable, and aesthetically pleasing solutions for their kitchen, bathroom, and commercial projects.

Unlike quartz, with its concerns about worker safety and long-term health implications, natural stone is a time-tested and proven alternative. Natural stone offers a visually stunning aesthetic and provides reassurance in terms of safety and longevity. SurfaceCo's extensive selection of natural stone options encompasses a rich array of textures, colors, and patterns, ensuring each client finds the perfect fit for their project. Whether it's granite, marble, or the rugged appearance of slate, SurfaceCo's commitment to quality craftsmanship ensures that every piece of natural stone is meticulously selected and expertly installed. By choosing natural stone from SurfaceCo, customers can rest assured that they are investing in a product that not only enhances the beauty of their space but also prioritizes their well-being and peace of mind for years to come.

"We understand the concerns surrounding the manufacture of quartz countertops, which is why we are proud to offer natural stone alternatives that meet the highest standards of safety and craftsmanship," added the company's spokesperson. "Our team is the foundation of everything we do, and we are making the adjustments needed to avoid any issues proactively. Even if there is no ban on quartz countertops in the UK, we remain committed to upholding the highest safety and quality standards in all our operations."

By prioritizing health and offering natural stone alternatives, SurfaceCo aims to set a new standard for safety within the stone industry while continuing to exceed the expectations of its valued clients.
