Global Stone are pleased to be working in partnership with two of the leading UK premium suppliers of jointing, grouting and maintenance products.

Natural Stone

Natural Stone

For our natural stone collection we are delighted to be working with Azpects who have, over the past five years, developed EASYJoint into the UK’s leading, all weather natural stone premium paving joint product.


EASYJoint is available in five popular colours Mushroom, Stone Grey, Buff Sand, Basalt and Jet Black and is suitable for nearly all natural paving types and can be used all year round (except Granite). A simple application process requires the product to be brushed and watered in, making it up to 10 times faster and easier to use than standard mortar jointing, resulting in very strong joints across all surfaces and the base.

Collection Finishing Accessories

Finishing accessories are available for all ranges within the porcelain collection, including all sizes and colours. Minimum order for all finishing accessories is one pack. Colour, sizes and the number of pieces in a pack vary by product, so please check the individual finishing piece you require for further information. These are non-stock items, which are made to order, and therefore have a longer delivery time, please ask when requesting the pieces. Bespoke finishing accessories are also available on request.


Porcelain Paving Tiles

For our porcelain collection we are delighted to be working with Mapei, a premium supplier of products for tile preparation.


Adhesives are used to secure the porcelain paving tiles to walling or prepared subfloors, preventing the tiles moving when being walked or driven over. The range includes the Mapei Keraflex Maxi – a high performance, cementitious flexible tile adhesive which can be used for both floor and wall applications. When the Keraflex Maxi is applied, it needs to be applied to the substrate as well as the back of the tile. Each tile should be pressed using the twist and slide motion into position. Floor joints can be grouted within 24 hours.


Grout is required to finish off your porcelain patio, walling or drive project. The Mapei grouting product is available in three colours, Beige, Grey and Black. Other colours are available on request, however delivery times will be longer. Mapei Ultracolour Plus is ideal for joints of between 2-20mm and is a high performance, anti-effloresence, quick setting and drying grout that will be walkable in approximately 24 hours.
