    API Crema Sanza

    High quality natural stone for architectural masonry, cladding and paving

    API Crema Sanza is a unique light grey limestone that offers architects an attractive alternative to the ubiquitous Yorkstone that is specified by many Landscape Architects in the UK and Ireland. The stone is hard wearing and ideal for paving and robust environments. 

    One major benefit of API’s Crema Sanza is that it can be used in a multitude of formats including cladding, ashlar, paving or walling, similar to that of the hard Irish and North UK Limestones that are available on the market.

    API Crema Sanza has been supplied for many commercial properties throughout Europe and large residential properties in the UK and USA. These include:

    • NHS Care Home near Bilbao.
    • Residential House in Miami.
    • Large Residential Villa in Alicante.
    • Brookwood (Large Residential House), Prestbury, Cheshire.

    API Crema Sanza Gallery

    The limestone is extracted between Zaragoza and the French Border in North East Spain
    and is proving a popular choice where more of a monotone grey colouration or harder material is required.

    API Crema Sanza limestone has a light grey/off white uniform colouration which gives the stone a clinical and natural look. The limestone regularly competes against the lower cost Cumbrian and Irish limestones that are available on the market.

    The material is suitable for all ashlar, cladding, architectural and landscape applications in various finishes from honed to bush hammered.

    Extensive reserves are readily available and with blocks up to 3500mm long, large pieces are easily cut into one piece.
