Epprechtstein Granit, grau
“Epprechtstein Granit” is particularly valued for its uses in natural stonework thanks to its proven quality and its distinctive colour and texture. Numerous historical buildings bear witness to this. The good physical and technical properties of this stone allow almost unlimited interior and exterior applications. Its tested and certified frost-salt resistance is another significant plus.
The Epprechtstein quarry has been in operation for several centuries. It is one of few quarries in Germany from which grey and yellowish granite can still be sourced today.
Regional “Epprechtstein Granit” is a highly sustainable building material.
