The Trefor quarry of Northern Wales has been for over 50 years and continues to be the source of the highest quality granites for curling stone manufacturing. We at Canada Curling Stone Co. are proud to have exclusive rights to the Trefor granite making us the only company in the world to use Trefor granite to manufacture new curling stones. Know for its superior quality, Trefor granites have the ability to withstand years of frequent use making them the top choice for clubs considering the purchase of new stones.
Blue Trefor granite tends to have a slightly shorter running surface life than that of the Red Trefor granite, which is why Blue Trefor material is generally used in the production of new insert stones. Red Trefor granite being more resistant to running surface pitting and wear is a good material choice for clubs interested in purchasing new stones without inserts. However, when you combine either of the Trefor granites with a Blue Hone granite insert running surface, you get a far superior curling stone than any other new curling stone with a life span of 40 to 50 years (even in an active club).
If you would like more information please don’t hesitate to contact our office as we would be happy to answer any questions, provide you with a quote, but more importantly to aid your club in purchasing a stone that is best suited for your club’s needs.
