The Jura limestone is a fantastic type of limestone that is extracted and manufactured in Germany that has become a very popular limestone to be used on a diversity of building and decoration projects throughout the UK, particularly in places like London, Manchester or Liverpool. We are talking about a fairly hard type of stone, in fact one of the hardest limestones in the market, which is versatile and can be used on both interior and exterior applications on climates like the UK. The Jura is today a reference limestone that is known to architects, designers and contractors.
Types of Jura limestone
There are two main variation of Jura limestone: the Jura Beige with a beige colour (which can be supplied with a light variation and a dark variation), and the Jura Grey that has a grey/silver colour. In the UK, both types of Jura limestone are particularly appreciated and with high demand. While the Jura Beige presents a sandy colour that often is seen as a great alternative to local limestone Portland, the Jura Grey presents the concrete type of colour that is much appreciated on contemporary design and architecture.
The Jura is one of the hardest limestones available in the market, with considerable hardness, low porosity and compact. This makes this limestone extremely versatile and that is considered for any sort of both interior and exterior applications.
In the UK, the Jura limestone has been used on both private and commercial projects. In terms of private projects, it is mostly seen on both interior and exterior wall flooring and paving, but also staircases, wall coverings and diverse interior decoration. Clients appreciate having the same limestone on their interior and exterior flooring, and with the Jura this is technically possible on the UK. In terms of commercial projects, the Jura is seen on diverse exterior cladding applications, but also on diverse interior applications, most notably flooring.
There are numerous examples of the Jura limestone applied on projects throughout the UK. Perhaps one of the most iconic projects is the Liverpool Museum, where Jura Beige light type was used on a specifically shaped exterior wall cladding. The final result is fantastic. In addition, there are many projects done for private individuals for all sorts of applications in their residential projects, from modern to classic styles.
