About Classic Travertine Tiles & Pavers

This is Classic Travertine with an Unfilled and Tumbled finish, and is available in Rustica, Standard and Premium grades.

Suitable for internal and external use, around pools and entertaining areas, as well as walls.

This travertine tile has more natural air holing which occurs in ALL travertine BUT it has a little more of it, which we recommend being filled with our travertine colour matched grout if desired for easier maintenance. CONFUSED…..We explain our different grades of travertine in the TAB “Premium V Standard V Rustica Grades Explained.”


Premium V Standard V Rustica Grades Explained

Before purchasing your travertine tiles or pavers, it is important to understand the basic industry terms in order to choose the grade & travertine tiles most appropriate for your purposes. The most popular grade in Australia is standard grade, due to its overall performance rating and value for money.
Travertine Grades are as follows…
