Gosford Quarries’ salt-tolerant sandstone range is tested extensively so it can weather constant immersion in salt water (seawater locations such as estuaries, bays, harbours and coastlines).
As a matter of proper business practice, Gosford Quarries also undertake regular Physical Testing for all of our types of sandstone, under the American Standard Testing Methods, and by NATA registered Laboratories
Our salt-tolerant sandstone adheres to Australian Standards designated by the Designers Corporation of Australian Standards Committee and ISOs.
Not all sandstone is salt-tolerant or suitable for use in saline environments. In fact, all natural materials (not only natural sandstone) will be impacted by salt water erosion over time. It is essential to speak to an expert regarding application of sandstone in salt water environments and sealers and installation methods recommended for use in those projects.
Gosford Quarries have sandstone materials to meet salt-tolerant sandstone criteria; contact us for more information on (02) 8585 8282.

Gosford Quarries source their raw and crushed civil sandstone materials from a single, exclusive quarry location when fulfilling orders for scope of works at any scale
Gosford Quarries have six exclusive quarries that they extract a variety of sandstone products. Extracting stone from exclusive quarries means that the quality of the material is consistently tested for quality and reliability in accordance with government and RMS specifications and requirements. Civil sandstone products quarried from the one exclusive location will have little variance as they were sourced from a common vein and location. Other suppliers extract material from un-tested and inconsistent sites which make it impossible to ensure the quality and reliability of their products.
Natural quarry sites are the preferred source of civil sandstone by Councils and Government organisations and Sandstone council landscaping projects because of our ability to continually test and compare results with historical sandstone data.
Are Gosford Quarries Civil Sandstone Materials and Civil Sandstone Products Imported?
When sandstone is imported it is impossible to qualify the origin of the sandstone products supplied, and hence their overall integrity and quality as a whole when used in a civil construction project
Even in local Australian supply lines, many different sandstone supply companies may quarry raw civil sandstone materials from different areas, i.e., quarries, commercial sites and demolition sites which means different grades of supply ranging between dry, hard and soft sandstone; there will therefore be no consistency in quality and there will be huge variances across the entire project supply
