Lightweight natural stone panels - the next generation in stone.

About Lightweight natural stone panels

Features:

  • Innovative - The panels are 1/8th the weight of traditional panels but many times stronger due to the laminated backing materials. They are real stone and come in a variety of types and colours. The products come in a variety of sizes from 3’X8’ all the way up to 5’X8’ with some custom sizes available.
  • Functional - They are waterproof, come with a number of accessories (soap dishes, shampoo box inserts, pencil mouldings, etc), are easy to clean, and are an environmentally friendly product that will help you in meeting LEED design criteria (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). We also have specialized tools enabling us to cut at 45° angles to increase the number of applications – in short, there is no limit to your imagination as a Designer!
  • Aesthetics - Some of the stones are mounted on translucent panels allowing them to be backlit which can provide some dramatic effects! The material can also be ordered to book match the grain! See more down in the gallery.
  • Durability - Like all stone, granite and marble products these are durable, easy to clean and maintain.
  • Attention to Detail - Our attention to detail is second to none! We take pride in producing the results that you have come to expect!
  • Price - Our prices range from $25-165.00 per square foot. The type of material and complexity of installation are the mitigating factors.

Type of Lightweight natural stone panels

  1. Composite Panels
  2. Translucent Panels
  3. Aluminum Honeycomb Panels

1. Composite thin natural stone panels are made up of a thin stone veneer (A 4mm or 5mm overlay of 100% natural marble, onyx, or travertine) and one layer of recycled plastic composite and two layers of aluminum for greater flexibility COMPOSITE PANELSand pressure resistance without breaking. Plastic composite backing is made from 100% recycled plastic. Composite thin natural stone panels weighs only 3 lbs per square foot which makes it 1/5 the weight of traditional slab and 1/2 the weight of many stone and porcelain tiles.Panel characteristics

 

 

 

 

 

 

TRANSLUCENT PANELS

 

2. Translucent thin natural stone panels are one of the most unique and can provide a really special look for certain situations. By combining a thin (5mm), natural stone veneer with a 5 mm sheet of fibreglass, we’ve created an incredible stone panel that produces amazing special effects when it reflects the light.

They produce a brilliant, glowing effect when backlit. Unlike solid stone, the use of the fibreglass backing allows light to shine through these panels to illuminate the pattern and colour of the stone to great effect, making these panels really stand out. Better still, they are both incredibly strong and durable, while also being lightweight.

Natural translucent stone panel systems have a huge number of applications for both interior and exterior uses. They are especially popular as cladding or on bars, bathroom surfaces and pretty much anywhere else, as they produce a brilliant, glowing effect when backlit.

 

Aluminum Honeycomb Panels

3. Aluminum Honeycomb thin natural stone panels are natural stone composite panels comprised of a thin stone veneer and an aluminum honeycomb backing sandwiched between impervious, high-strength, fibre-reinforced epoxy skin. These composite panels help to overcome the inherent problems with natural stone, namely their weight and fragile nature, while still preserving the natural beauty of stone.

A honeycomb panels provide much more strength and durability with minimum weight. The honeycomb design makes them fire and heat resistant, while also offering excellent insulating and soundproofing properties. Their light weight makes them both easy to handle and install, saving you time on the job and making the whole process much safer.

The aluminum backing panel is also rust proof and the entire panel, both front and back, is much better able to withstand the elements than solid stone. Lightweight stone honeycomb panels can be used in virtually any project imaginable, and are perfect for anywhere where you want that stone look, but without all of the headaches associated with it.

Interior and exterior panels and cladding, showers, countertops, floors, elevators and more—all look great with these incredible natural stone panels. Aluminum Honeycomb thin natural stone panels improve upon both cost and colour when compared to the solid stone cladding.

Because natural stone composite panels are so lightweight, panels can be both cuts and maneuvered around at the point of manufacture and by installers to create a cohesive look much more easily than dimensional stone. These panels are one-fifth the weight of the dimensional stone and provide huge savings regarding installation time, labour, and structural requirements. So, because of an 80 percent reduction in weight, we can save builders 20 to 50 percent in installation costs.
