NEW! Crystalline Silica-Free Quantum Zero benchtops, proudly standard with Ultimate Inclusions

We’re all about creating beautiful, functional homes that are kind to the environment while protecting the health of our trades. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce a significant upgrade to our Ultimate Inclusions package with a revolutionary new product that’s ticking all the boxes for sustainable, healthy, stylish benchtops and surfaces: Quantum Zero recycled surfaces.

Quantum Zero might sound like something straight out of a Marvel movie, but it’s actually the future of stunning, durable benchtops. Find out what makes it so special, why it’s part of our Ultimate Inclusions Package and why it’s the perfect choice for your home (whether you’re choosing one of our display homes or we’re building you a custom home).

Why Quantum Zero?

Quantum Zero is not just any surface; it’s a game-changer. Unlike traditional benchtop and surface options, Quantum Zero is completely free of crystalline silica—a material linked to health risks during fabrication and installation. By eliminating crystalline silica, Quantum Zero ensures your home surfaces are safe for workers while still being beautiful and functional for your space!

 Preparing for the Future: The Engineered Stone Ban

With the Federal Government’s ban on engineered stone starting June 30, 2024, Quantum Zero surfaces are the perfect alternative. This ban aims to reduce health risks associated with crystalline silica during manufacture and installation. After June 30, 2024, there will be no more importing or fabricating crystalline silica engineered stones.


Here’s what you need to know about why Aussies are saying “see ya later” to crystalline silica in benchtops:

  • Keeping Tradies Safe: Dust from cutting engineered stone can be a real health hazard. There’s no magic number for “safe” dust exposure. The ban removes the risk entirely for workers, making their workplaces safer.
  • Peace of Mind at Home: While the risk is extremely, extremely low (health risks are only associated with crystalline silica benchtops during fabrication and installation), some people worry about dust exposure when engineered stone is installed. While installed engineered stone remains safe even with minor cracks or chips, the ban helps minimise concerns and puts everyone’s minds at ease.
  • New and Improved Options: The ban encourages the development and use of alternative materials for benchtops. Think of it as having more awesome choices that are also good for everyone! Like Quantum Zero!
