MANUFACTURE MEASURED FROM CENTRAL SOURCE IN MARBLE BLANCO MACAEL FROM PREVIOUS MODEL

Image
On this occasion we manufacture a low center fountain from a model that we had already manufactured before.

The main difference lay in the measures requested by the customer and an aspect that affected the final aspect of the source, which was that we were requested that the source incorporated the closed circuit water engine, on the same plate.

To hide the engine the only place where we could introduce it was in the jumper (spout) of the source. This meant that we had to make a jumper somewhat larger than that proportionally would have been made according to measures of the plate requested by the customer. The engine was embedded inside the jumper hidden under a lid of the same marble.


Here we provide you the model of the original source in which the client requested us their source to measure, and photos of the manufacturing process and final result obtained:








Cleaning exterior mud floors with pressure water machines: An error that can be very expensive

Image
Today it has become very fashionable to use pressure water machines to clean from our car, facades, floors, etc.

While it is true that the result that is obtained in most cases is very positive, we must be very aware that these machines work at a few bars of pressure in which no one would think to put the hand underneath, if we do not want To suffer damage and to say great pain.

This I just said that seems to come to mind, I say because the terracotta floor is nothing more than as his own word says clay. If we have ever broken a terracotta pot, we can see what it is like inside: it has a very small outer layer that we see, apparently very hard, but inside we see how the clay grains are pressed together And as if we give him with the fingers these are easily detached.

Well the clay pavement is exactly the same: coast of a layer about 2 mm thick that the hardest vitrified part and that we tread, but below this layer is the granulate of which we have spoken before.

Now let's think ab…

MARBLE FOUNTAINS : MUCH MORE THAN A DECORATIVE ELEMENT

Image
Originally the marble fountains served only as a point of water supply for the inhabitants of a town and were usually located in the squares or central places, to facilitate access to them.

The materials used to make these sources ranged from a simple wooden pylon or trough, to pieces of natural stone and marbles. The main reason for making these sources in marble or natural stone was precisely because of the hardness and durability of this material and its resistance to stone erosion and weathering.

With the Roman Empire and Islamic culture, it was when these pieces began to acquire a character much more than only functional and began to form part of a decorative space, where they acquired a huge role. In this way pieces of enormous beauty were carved, details with reliefs, carvings, etc .; And became synonymous with social status.

Currently there are different materials of manufacture of wall sources as of center, ranging from the original materials of marble and stone, to the fiber…
