Designing with Stone Honeycomb Panels: Tips for Creating Beautiful Stone Cladding
With its aesthetic appeal and strength, it’s no wonder stone has always been a favorite material for creating high-end and attractive structures. Plus, it offers a myriad of design possibilities that can elevate any interior or exterior application. That said, natural stone tends to be heavy and challenging to work with, especially for custom applications, resulting in a more expensive project. Still, there is a way to achieve the beauty of stone without compromising strength and savings, and that is by using stone honeycomb panels.
Stone veneer panels are made by reinforcing fiberglass or honeycomb panels with a 5mm stone veneer on top. The result is a material that’s lightweight, strong, and looks great!
If you’re thinking of using these materials on your next project, check out these design tips to ensure the best results:
Stone honeycomb panels are 1/3 lighter than stone slabs, making them excellent for exterior cladding. This advantage significantly reduces the entire exterior facade’s dead load, allowing you to save millions of dollars. However, we recommend getting them from a manufacturer that can supply them in larger formats to speed up installation. That way, you can save on installation time and costs.

Stone honeycomb panels come in different styles, so you should be able to find the perfect materials for your aesthetic requirements. The options include thin stone veneer, porcelain or sintered stone, brick-like ceramic, and curved stone. Our experienced CAD drawing engineers can also work with you to create custom shapes for interior fit-outs.
Work with an expert
If you’re considering using stone veneer panels for a project, it’s important to work with an experienced manufacturer who can customize the panels with any type of stone you want. That means you can choose from options like onyx, sandstone, granite, marble, and more. And if you’re looking for something a little different, reputable manufacturers can even customize your stone honeycomb panel with artificial materials like engineered stone, porcelain, glass, and ceramic.
