Hotels & Leisure

Solid surface & Technistone are non-porous materials, and have many advantages over surfaces such as laminates, tiles, stainless steel, granite and marble, (non- staining; won’t burn; marks & scraps can easily be removed). They are both hard wearing, hygienic and easy to maintain. Diorite is a preferred supplier to the Maldron hotels group.


Retail Shop Fitting

Retail outlets rely on robust installations that can withstand the rigors of daily use. Versatile and practical we provide surfaces that look as smart as they are easy-to-clean and maintain; and are durable enough to withstand the heavy traffic of almost any retail space. Solid surface is now becoming the preferred surface in food retail establishments since it meets all industry standards regarding health and hygiene requirements. Flooring shop signage, wall cladding, counters and displays – we have the technology to enhance the shopping experience.


Multi Residential Accommodation

From experience we know that in this sector developers are running on tight budgets year after year. In addition to the initial cost saving benefits over our competitors, the materials have proven to be more durable, and hygienic than the traditional counter-top materials. Therefore, consideration should be given to facilities management issues and to the cost savings to be yielded, over the long term, as a result of using these low maintenance materials.


Secure Enviroment

Diorite gives you the power to individually programme each unit, working with experts & consultants such as Eco-Logic in this sector we have managed to reduce the huge costs incurred through vandalism and misuse in these environments.

Health Sector

The surfaces you specify play a critical role in helping you create safer healthcare environments. Healthcare design’s first priority is to prevent infection. Nonporous materials like solid surface help healthcare architects and designers create spaces that, with proper cleaning, will not support the growth of mould and mildew. Designers and architects do not have to worry about compromising on aesthetics & optimal hygiene levels. They can create everything from welcoming reception areas and patient rooms to efficient, practical treatment areas, surgeries and laboratories. Critical to this environment solid surface has the benefit of seamless joints, consequently avoiding the potential for bacteria to hide.



In today’s competitive pub market owners are insisting on the highest quality materials and value for money. By using either solid surface or Technistone the architect or designer can satisfy his artistic requirements and yet meet all the concerns of his client over health & hygiene, durability, quality & cost

“The thing I really like about this bar top is, no matter what is spilled on it, one wipe and it’s clean”- Seamus McCallion owner Zone Nite Club Donegal.




With its unique technical properties solid surface is the perfect surfacing material for a broad range of contemporary education applications. These include work surfaces in labs and classrooms, desk and tabletops in student and faculty lounges, cafeterias, reception areas & halls of residence and shower surrounds.
