Zenith Surfaces

Stone Ambassador has replicated many of their existing colours and finishes in a Vitrified surface, without any crystalline silica.

Designed by Australians, Zenith is a vitrified surface that mimics all the characteristics of Engineered Stone – minus the crystalline silica. They come in similar colourways to other engineered stone brands, and if looking to match existing benchtops, could be used.

Some slabs will become available this March, and the remaining engineered stone slabs will slowly be transitioned over to the new Zenith surfaces. It also comes with a 10 year warranty.



With everything to do with engineered stone being up on the air, Dekton’s versatility has made it a standout product within the current market.

Made of ultracompact porcelain, Dekton is a versatile replacement to engineered stone. It comes in many different colourways, as well as textures. With a wide range of thicknesses, it can be used both indoor and outdoors, as benchtops or even on floors and cabinetry. This can form more put together, aesthetic spaces.

Dekton has similar qualities to Engineered Stone, including scratch, abrasion and stain resistance, and added UV resistance. In addition to this, it comes with a 25 year warranty.
