Copings are available in 610 x 406 x 30mm with one long edge bullnosed (1LSBN), all copings have a honed surface.

Do not use acidic cleaners on natural stone as they can cause permanent, irreparable, damage to the colour and structure of the stone.

Product Guidance

Please note the shade of the final product could differ slightly compared to the sample you may receive due to slight batch variation. You must ensure that you are happy with the colour variation of the product you have received before you start laying, as after installation exchange will no longer be possible.

Ensure that you have all the required material to completely the whole project onsite before commencing any work. Open all your crates at the same time, taking material evenly from each of them. This will ensure you have a good distribution of colours across the whole paved area. DO NOT open one crate at a time using all the material before opening the next, this can result in uneven distribution of colours and can look unsightly.

We recommend that all customers read our product selection, maintenance & installation guides before purchasing.

Do not use acidic cleaners on natural stone as they can cause permanent, irreparable, damage to the colour and structure of the stone.

Do you need to clean wall and swimming pool copings?

Yes you will need to keep up regular maintenance to keep your wall and swimming pool coping looking their best. Cleaning all natural stone copings is simple and the same for all types and finishes. Use soapy water, or, for tougher stains as well as moss and algae, we recommend using New Clean 60 available from our website. Leave on for around 60 minutes and wash off with a stiff brush, power washer or a hose to ensure you have removed all of the cleaner. For further reading please follow the link to our tech guide.

If being used around swimming pools we would advise not allowing any of the cleaning products to enter the water as it may have adverse effects on the chemical balance of the pool.

Do you need to seal wall copings?

Yes we would always recommend sealing all natural stone copings and steps, this will give some additional protection against hard to remove stains and also help to further reduce the maintenance needs of the product. It is advisable around swimming pools not to seal the stone as you want to maintain the maximum porosity of the surround stone to improve slip resistance.

Always make sure your paving is completely dry before sealing and that you have at least 24 hours of dry weather ahead after sealing has been completed.

How to seal wall and swimming pool copings?

Swimming pool copings can be sealed in the same way as all natural stone paving materials, always make sure your paving is completely dry before sealing and that you have at least 24 hours of dry weather ahead after sealing has been completed. With swimming pool areas more care is needed not to spill the sealant into the water as it could upset the chemical balance in the water, or at least sit on the surface of the water requiring additional cleaning of the pool before use. Always read and follow the manufacturers instruction fully when using any sealant products, and ensure you do a small test area first to make sure you are happy with the final finish before sealing the whole patio.

Is travertine slippery around pools?

Travertine paving’s porous nature means that it easily absorbs water making it relatively nonslip. We would recommend using tumbled travertine coping around a swimming pool and not filling the surface of the stone with grout. This will help improve the slip resistance further.

Is travertine good for pool copings?

Travertine is an excellent product for pool copings, it is easily worked making a wide variety of designs possible. It is hardwearing and has enough porosity to aid water absorption which draws water away from the surface of the stone helping with slip resistance. Travertine is also available in matching paving stones which will help enhance the look and functionality of any pool area.

Can you pressure wash travertine paving?

Travertine paving can be cleaned with a pressure washer, but we would recommend firstly trying soapy water and a stiff brush, if this does not give you the desired results, then move onto a pressure washer. When cleaning with a pressure washer be careful not to get too close to the surface of the stone as this could damage the surface. After pressure washing you many need to apply an additional coat of sealant that could have been removed by the pressure washing.

Outdoor Maintenance Guide

How to lay travertine paving?

You can lay travertine paving in the same why you would install any natural stone or porcelain products. Basically they should be laid on a full wet bed of mortar over a compacted hardcore base deep enough for the site conditions. For further reading please follow the link to our tech guide

Outdoor Installation Guide

We would additionally always recommend using a slurry primer when installing Travertine paving to help bond the slabs and the sub-base together. This will result in a greatly improved installation.

Can you seal travertine paving?

Yes, we would generally recommend sealing travertine paving slabs, this will give some additional protection against hard to remove stains and also help to further reduce the maintenance needs of the product. There is some debate about whether to seal travertine paving directly around swimming pools. Some suggest it is best not to seal as you want the stone to be as porous as possible to aid slip resistance, but this is a personal choice and depends greatly on your site conditions.

Is travertine good for patios?

Travertine is an excellent paving material that is extremely dense. The reduced porosity of travertine paving means it is less susceptible to dirt penetration and therefore reduces maintenance and keeps this stunning product looking better for longer, but at the same time still maintaining a little porosity to help with slip resistance.

Is travertine good for driveways?

None of the travertine products available on our website are suitable for driveways. You would need a product that is at least 50mm thick to give sufficient strength to take the weight of vehicular traffic. Usually when travertine is being used for a driveway small blocks are produced such as 200 x 50 x 50mm and these are laid in the same way you lay concrete block paving, this provides the additional strength needed to take the vehicular weight.

Is travertine paving good around swimming pools?

Travertine is the ideal material to be used around swimming pools. It has a good level of slip resistance due to it being a slightly porous material which helps draw water away from the surface and into the stone itself. It stays cool in hot temperatures and when tumbled can be very soft to the touch. With its extremely attractive appearance, travertine is the perfect choice for pool copings and surrounds.

The tumbled finish is an especially popular choice around swimming pools due to its soft edges and smooth surface finish. Travertine pool copings and paving slabs are available in the matching finish to help create a seamless link between pool and the surrounding garden.

Will my purchased products match the sample?

We always send a representative sample from the current batch of tiles or paving we have in stock, so as long as you requested a sample close to the time of purchasing, this will help to ensure the tiles and paving you receive matches  the sample you have been sent as closely as possible.

All of our products are either natural or porcelain and therefore there  is always scope for variation in shade, colour and to some extent the texture and finish with the natural products and with porcelain there will always be some slight colour variation between different batches, although the surface texture and finish will remain largely the same. 

We would strongly recommend that you visit one of our showrooms or paving displays to look at the current selection, so you can be entirely sure of what you will receive.

Do I need to seal my patio?

Yes, we recommend you seal all sandstone and natural stone paving upon (or shortly after) installation, to ensure it stays looking at it's best for longest. Sealing will help make it resilient to staining and increases it's longevity. We recommend Universeal Hydroseal or for an enhanced look Universeal Ultimate Stone Enhancer
