* Note
Connemarble is a natural product and as such no two pieces are exactly alike.

The client and installer must inspect the material prior to installation and prepare any blending required prior to installation.
All testing has been completed by Sandberg, Accredited Laboratories, 40 Grosvener Gardens, London. In January 1998.

The tests meet the requirements of ISO/EC Guide 25 and EN 45001
