9 Advantages of the Lightweight Marble Panel
※ What is lightweight panel(one of laminated marble panels)
l Stone + Alu-honeycomb Lightweight Panel
l Stone + Glass Back-lit Panel
The technical team of MOREROOM STONE has spent 2 years on research and development of laminated marble panel, standing at the forefront of the technology area, so that the lightweight compound panel can be totally put into production. Max size can be 3m * 2m, not limited to small scale panel. The whole production line covers luxury stone, including the natural quartz whose Moh’s hardness is higher than 7.5 and granite, basalt, diorite and all the stones from nature.
There are 9 advantages which the lightweight panel can offer to our client through technology control.
1. Lower Cost
The lower cost of lightweight panel comes from the less cost of stone and the more convenient installation. Lightweight big slabs series generally makes 2cm thickness solid stone into 2 to 3 pieces. Normally the cost can be saved by 1/3. And also the weight is reduced from 65-70 square meters, to 8-20 square meters.
It means the whole normal Alu-honeycomb compound panel 2cm * 3cm can be hosting through fire exit. People can carry it easily. It can be installed directly with standard screws and construction glue.
Currently some projects are recommended to install by whole piece. This can fully satisfy the designer’s need. And it also saves cost on transportation. For the pure steel structure building or the elevator with weight limit, it is the best choice.
2. High intensity
After compounding the natural stone with Alu-honeycomb panel, the lightweight marble panel’s intensity of bending resistance, fracture resistance, and shear resistance are improved obviously, lowering the damage rate of transportation, installation and using process. One truck had an accident and turn over, the only board that survived was Alu-honeycomb panel, and the rest were all broken.
3. Higher capability of alkali resistance, yellowing resistance, pollution resistance
In general, during the installing process or using process, for example, using cement cover, the slab will start to exist color change and spot on the surface in half or a year. It is very difficult to get rid of. Lightweight compound panel can prevent this kind of situation from happening, because it has stronger base, and is covered by a thin special glue layer, which separate water and corrosion matter, so that the alkali and yellowing caused by contact between natural stone and wet air can be prevented.
4. Controlling chromatic aberration
Lightweight stone panel uses 2cm thickness solid slab cuts it into 2 to 3 pieces, and its color and pattern is exactly same as the original board, which can make the large scale use easier and also match it oppositely to make a nature stone drawing result.
5. Easier installation and bigger use area
Because of the above characteristics, the weight intensity and the color match all increase the installing efficiency and security, and also lower the installing coat. The stone compound on the wall can use the screw and glue directly, which can save the high cost of keel and steel frame which is necessary for dry hanging, and reduce the space of pendant and increase the use area.
6. Breakthrough to forbidden zone
The normal slab has no problem on the decoration places, such as the wall, floor, window, hall, and countertop, but no decoration company dares take the risk of using it on the ceiling place.
7. Sound Insulation, Damp Proof, Heat Preservation and Energy Conservation
The compound panel has the equal hexagon structure, so it possesses the characteristics like sound insulation, damp proof, heat preservation, energy conservation, and consumption reduction. Therefore, installing it indoor and outdoor can reduce the consumption of electricity and heat greatly. These characteristics are far beyond the normal slab.
8. Comprehensive lower cost of transportation and installation
Lightweight stone panel is thinner and lighter, so it saves some costs on transportation and installation, especially for the expensive stone and 2cm * 3cm big slab, making the stone material yield very high.
9. Being pervious to Light
Almost all the stone is obvious to light, except a few pure black stone. We can compound the stone with fiberglass or glass. Then the natural stone’s beauty can be totally shown when it is back-lit. The luxury stone in exhibition hall is like the diamond on the crown.
