Lightweight natural stone consists of a sheet of natural stone bonded to an aluminium or honeycom panel.

A sheet (veneer) of natural stone between 4-8mm thick is bonded to an aluminium or honeycomb panel making a finished product that is much lighter than solid stone. The panels are fixed to walls, ceilings and furniture panels with a mounting system and can be enhanced with a wide range of edge finishes and back lighting.

By bonding natural stone to a lightweight panel, the slab will not only be more solid, it can be larger as well. A larger stone panel makes it possible to achieve seamless, monolithic walls of natural stones, allowing the beauty of stone to blossom forth.
