As a natural resource, stone and marble have a number of advantages for construction, particularly their
durability and unique aesthetics. Whilst its range of colours, textures and patterns makes it exceptionally
versatile in design.
However the weight, inflexibility and overall high cost of stone and mabrle has seen the use of these natural
resources diminish. More recently architects and designers are looking for inventive ways to integrate stone,
marble and their many benefits into projects.
ThinkrockStone can supply aluminium honeycomb panels to then be bonded to stone, marble and brick
USING STONE AND MARBLE VENEERED ALUMINIUM HONEYCOMB PANELS IN
COMPARISON TO THE TRADITIONAL MATERIAL HAS 5 KEY BENEFITS:
Increased strength and stability – The aluminium honeycomb provides a more consistent, superior strength
throughout the whole panel.
Lightweight – The reduced weight of the panel means less load stress is applied to the building or structure and
the panels can easily be supported and safely used overhead on ceilings, walkways and light fittings.
Ease of Installation – Easier, safer and more secure installation.
Design Flexibility – Lightweight and high strength allows architects and designers the freedom to utilise
composite stone panels in ways that heavy and fragile solid stone can’t be.
Cost Efficiencies – Due to the properties of stone veener panels there are reduced costs in labour,
transportation, cutting and the amount of actual stone required.
