Frequently Asked Questions
About our concrete
We make all our concrete in-house using 100% Western Australian aggregates and additives. This reduces the overall embodied energy of our products and ensures we only ever mix exactly the right amount for each project.
All of our items are made from either GFRC or UHPC concrete (see separate questions lower down).
These advanced materials allow us to make concrete much thinner than traditional concrete, usually 12 to 30mm thick.
This keeps the weight right down. Our integrated tops are a similar weight to high quality ceramic.
Our vessel basins weight 8kg to 15kg.
Yes. All good quality cabinets are suitable for our vessel basins and integrated vanity tops. This includes correctly assembled cabinets from Ikea.
For 'floating' wall mounted cabinets ensure you use appropriate fixings and adhesive behind the cabinet.
Once the cabinet is in place simply place the vessel basin or integrated vanity onto it and glue into place with a small amount of adhesive.
All of our integrated tops can be wall mounted onto cabinets, frames or brackets.
Concrete Studio uses two advanced materials known as glass fibre reinforced concrete (GFRC) and ultra high performance concrete (UHPC).
These are made from sand (42%), cement (42%), water (10%) and 6% additives and reinforcements. It's these additives that bring the superior properties of our mix..
No steel is used in any of our concrete; we reinforce using natural basalt fibres or glass fibres.
Our concrete products have a similar impact resistance as high quality granite and a higher overall strength than steel reinforced concrete.
The durability of our concrete is why our bathroom-ware and street furniture can be found in so many shopping centres and public spaces around Australia.
All products sealed with CS Protect sealer are considered by us to be stain-proof; you can read more about this on our sealer page. While others may tell you they have a stain-proof sealer, none that we know of will back it up with a 10 year guarantee.
Products sealed with CS Swift have medium to high stain resistance and is so durable that it cannot be abraded. We use this mostly for commercial street furniture projects.
Resealing is not required with either of our sealers provided the care and use guidelines are followed.
We consider concrete that requires resealing to have not been sealed fully to begin with, and our sealers stand apart from others for this reason.
Designers, specifiers and builders regularly return to us because our unique sealer means trouble-free installations and satisfied clients.
Yes, we sell resin repair kits in the unlikely event that you chip a piece of concrete.
Many high street bought tables are delivered unsealed or with chipped corners. In some cases - and if you are able to bring the item(s) to us - we may be able to help you. Please get in touch prior to coming to the factory.
If you have bought a concrete basin from elsewhere and find the sealer is flaking off (often around the 18 month mark) we may be able to send you a sealer kit.
Homes or site visits to assess concrete that was not made by us will incur a minimum charge of $250 payable in advance. This is for assessment only.
The majority of our raw materials are sourced from Western Australia. We only import materials - whether from interstate or overseas - if there is no viable local alternative.
