The difference between cube and cobblestone are both in form and in the art, the cobblestone is a cubic structure block in the shape of a truncated pyramid, while the cube is an element whose shape roughly resembles a cube obtained by the splitting machines. Also referred to as “Bolognini” or “Sanpietrini”, with their adaptability, they provide the ideal solution for any type of surface. They combine a high aesthetic and technological content and are adaptable to any type of environment and temperature. The shape obtained by mechanical splitting, and the great variety of colors, allow installers making multiple aesthetic solutions, ranging from classical pose to contrasting arc, the most sophisticated poses a peacock’s tail or geometric designs. Today, the cube remains one of the most popular types of flooring in the creation of private or public roads, and driveways or pedestrian.
Among the main strengths of this type of flooring are its high resistance to loads (related to the cube size), its durability, its versatility of installation, its ability to harmoniously follow the gradients of the terrain, the low slipperiness of its surface, the possibility of realizing geometric designs (ex pose arched) and last but not least its traditional charm. The top surface (and almost always the bottom one) of the cube is at the natural layer of the quarry, without excessive roughness, in order to allow a comfortable decking, while the four side faces have split, therefore much rougher. The various corners of the cube should not necessarily be equal and the various split faces may not be orthogonal to each other. These elements have an excellent wear resistance, a good coefficient of friction and are adaptable according to different situations of urban furniture.
