Ice cracks vs horseshoes, which kind of paving effect looks good?

Ice cracked stone

Ice crack is one of the traditional Chinese patterns, and has been widely used in porcelain, architectural decoration and garden landscape. In garden landscapes, ice crack patterns often appear in garden roads and courtyard paving, and have been used since ancient times.

Ice crack paving is not limited to size, form and specifications, so it is dynamic and coherent. Because of its unique patterns, it has the simple and natural beauty, and is highly ornamental and artistic.

What is the difference between stone ice cracks and messy slabs and mosaic stones?

Stone ice cracks are usually spliced ​​by several irregular-shaped equal-thickness stones. The overall paving effect is similar to the ice crack effect of antique vases. Because the structure of a single block is mostly irregular, it is also called a polygonal combination stone, and sometimes it is also called an irregular stone.

Stone ice cracks, chaotic slabs, and mosaic stones often cause confusion. There is a specific difference between them: chaotic slabs are corner waste (ranging in thickness and size) generated during processing. The scene conditions are spliced ​​randomly, although there are ice crack effects, but there is no regularity to follow. Ice cracked stones are paved by several irregularly shaped stones as a unit area (that is, a group), and each group can be seamlessly connected. , The overall listing has rules to follow.

Although mosaic stones can also spell the effect of ice cracks, the shape and size of each mosaic stone are the same, which reduces the randomness and uninterestingness of ice cracks.

Stone ice crack size and specifications?

The size and specifications of stone ice cracks can be varied, but the paving methods are similar. The following is a brief introduction: According to the specific application of the building module, the “split” design of stone ice cracks is generally performed in units of one square meter. It is common to divide into 4 groups of 0.25 square meters each.

The composition of each group can be said to be 5, 6, or 7 or even 8-9. The single-piece stone lines in the group can be freely designed to meet the actual effect of the paving occasion, and the machine cutting can be performed according to the design drawing during the actual processing.

So how do we describe the specifications and sizes of stone ice cracks?

Generally speaking, we can first say the thickness (for example, 2 cm). If it is divided into 4 groups per square and each group consists of 8 pieces, then it can be described as 4 × 8 2.5 cm thick ice cracked stone. Of course, each group can also be divided into 5 groups or other combinations, and so on.

The paving of stone ice cracks is basically similar to the paving of conventional floor tiles. There is a paving net under each group, and the stone and the net are bonded with an adhesive. This design is for the convenience of paving and not to be scattered during transportation. When laying, it can be spliced ​​directly in groups.

Horseshoe stone

In the age when stone is full of colors, more and more developers and individual decoration are very willing to use stone as decorative materials. However, it seems that stone is really indispensable in today’s buildings, and many scenes are inseparable. Stone.

For example, in order to show the luxury of the hotel lobby and the more beautiful appearance of the facade, various high-end hotels have used various stone materials as the wall surface. Although the decoration of the ground is beautiful, the effects are similar, but today we will introduce a different Stone-horseshoe.

Horseshoe stones are also called marble stones, and some places are also commonly called small cube stones.

Now horseshoe stones are widely used in squares, roadsides and other places where people have a lot of activities. For a more professional angle, let ’s not mention them. The reason that is closely related to us is that in addition to the beautiful decoration, the important thing is that horseshoe stones have health benefits Activities above can massage our feet, promote blood circulation, improve our physique, and increase our resistance. The pavement of horseshoe stones (marbled stones) is not as rugged as cobblestone roads, so our legs will not be sour after a long period of activity.

No building material can have as many varieties and textures as natural horseshoe stones. Through different treatment and polishing of the surface of the stone, the natural stone becomes various.

Builders, designers, and architects calmly choose these natural stone products according to their environmental needs. For any kind of demand, there is always a natural thinking stone that can be properly used as one of the building materials. .

Horseshoe natural stone has good compression resistance, which makes it a preferred construction material. Stainless steel can only reach the level of natural stone durability after paying a very high production and energy consumption price.

For example, granite pavement and other similar solid materials have super hardness and durability and can be used for decades or hundreds of years.

Research shows that the life cycle of ordinary building materials is 30 years or longer. Horseshoe natural stone has more remarkable economic value than other man-made building materials. Initial investments are sometimes relatively easy to increase due to low energy consumption and low maintenance costs. Investment in cleaning and maintenance is minimal.
