At the Centre de Pierres Mirabel, you will find four types of steps:
The natural stones chosen are of the highest quality. Depending on whether the slope to be covered is steep or gentle, you can choose from standard thicknesses ranging from 6 to 8 inches. We select steps of similar thicknesses for the same project, according to your needs. This way, you will avoid problems related to adjustments during the installation of the steps.
Some additional information:
Natural and guillotined steps are sold by weight while cut steps are sold by the square foot. For your step to be ergonomic, the minimum depth should be between 14 and 16 inches. We produce 18 to 24 inches steps to give you the necessary clearance when stacking stones.
The length of the steps is variable depending on your project, starting from 2.5ft to 6ft. Larger sizes must be approved prior to order preparation.
These are natural steps in which the front and/or back has been guillotine cut and then are sorted by width in order to obtain relatively uniform steps for the entire project. The depth of these steps is based on the needs of the customer with a minimum of 18 inches. The façade may be natural or guillotined, while the ends are generally not cropped.
Note that a guillotine is a machine that cuts stone so as to create a split face without leaving a trace.
These are randomly-shaped steps. Although their thickness is consistent, their shapes will vary.
