Durable and Lightweight: Harnessing the Power of Stone Honeycomb Panels
Natural stone can add a touch of luxury and elevate the look and value of your building. However, their weight and installation costs usually cause problems for most projects. The good news is there are more reasonably priced, reliable, and lightweight alternatives today, with stone honeycomb panelsamong the best options.
With a stone honeycomb panel, you get a 5mm-thick stone veneer bonded on top of the reinforcing fiberglass or aluminum honeycomb panel to maintain the material’s natural aesthetic without compromising weight and durability. That means you have more freedom to use any natural material without worrying about them weighing down your structure or costing more to install. Reputable manufacturers can work with any material, including onyx, marble, sandstone, limestone, granite, and basalt. Plus, it’s possible to use artificial materials like glass, ceramic, porcelain, and engineered stone.
Ideal for exterior cladding
Lightweight stone honeycomb panels are perfect for exterior cladding. Unlike thick slabs of solid stone, these panels are significantly lighter and weigh only around one-third of traditional materials, minimizing the dead load of your building’s exterior facade.
Furthermore, these panels offer the advantage of reducing installation costs due to their availability in large formats and ease of handling. Compared to solid stone alternatives, the fiberglass honeycomb panels enable a significantly faster installation process, allowing you to finish the project three times quicker. This time-saving benefit not only ensures timely project delivery but also contributes to reducing overall installation expenses.
A touch of luxury for less
Solid stone is also great for interiors, especially when creating upscale look and feel. But you don’t have to splurge much to make it a part of your interior design. Use stone honeycomb panels to save time and money. They can be made with a 6mm-thick natural stone veneer on top and reinforced with an aluminum honeycomb backing. Or if you prefer another material, like porcelain, it will be 3mm thick. Just be sure to get these materials from a trusted source. Reputable manufacturers like KC Panels use a specially developed epoxy adhesive that can keep up with profound changes in temperatures from -40 to 80 degrees Celsius without losing bonding strength.
