Porphyry cubes paving
Porphyry cubes with cube shape are widely used for every kind of paving.
The cubes are widely used for various paving works for pedestrians use such as public squares, streets of old town centers , homes and private villas in order to enhance the value of their gardens and walkable floor areas. The particular colors of the cubes, as well as of all other products in Trentino Porphyry, make them truly unique. The colors depend on their extraction zone and vary from red, rust red to gray. The outdoor paving in porphyry cubes is historically among the most widely used, for in addition to having a high aesthetic content, it has a great capability of adapting to different usage situations. The best outdoor floorings arise from the combined use of porphyry and other stone materials which differ in color and size. It is possible for instance to create a combination of marble and porphyry cubes. The porphyry cubes are vastly used in urbancentres both for sidewalks and roads due to their high resistance to the weight of heavy vehicles.Cubes can be also used in elegant places thanks to the accurate drawings produced with them, as for instance in large squares of historic centers since they recreate the historic atmosphere of the past. The size choice for paving will dramatically affect their use: the greater their size and thickness, the greater their resistance to the load stressed on the pavement itself.
