You may rely on our professionalism, honesty and top craftsmanship. You receive the best quality in lightweight stone paneling, as well as the right price and the fastest delivery time. Why should you choose our lightweight stone cladding products?We combine an ultra thin stone sheet reinforced with a honeycomb aluminum or fiberglass honeycomb panel.
This offers three major advantages: you keep the beauty of the natural stone that is lightweight and has better resistance. Natural stone is a highly desirable product, whether it comes down to construction projects or decoration purposes. Architects, engineers and designers always go for what’s unique and exquisite, and natural stone meets both criteria.
The lightweight stone panels are inspired by nature and made possible thanks to high end technology. Ever since Antiquity mathematicians struggled to find the structure that uses the least material to create a surface and thus have a minimum of weight. Bees did that for us by creating the hexagons inside their honeycombs.
The aerospace industry was already using the aluminum honeycomb core structure and so forty years ago a breakthrough innovation was born: a thin stone veneer reinforced with an aluminum honeycomb backing. The product has been ever since perfecting and the demand for honeycomb stone panels is increasing.
These honeycomb stone panels may as well be referred to as lightweight stone panels as they have their mass reduced with 80 % in comparison with pure natural stone which will create a weight reduction to any finished product. This means a longer life span. Basically the stone honeycomb panel is a natural stone veneer laminated over a composite of aluminum or fiberglass honeycomb aluminum core.
The stone sheet can be selected from any class of stone: granite, marble, onyx, and limestone. This type of composite is now needed on every market offering endless advantages. The result is a steady structure easy to be installed and superior to pure stone in terms of weight, smoothness, insulation against heat and sound absorbing, fireproof and environmentally friendly.
Imagine luxurious interiors and exteriors for facades or flooring , covering yachts, cruise ferries, elevator cabins, wall paneling for every type of commercial and residential building through the process of stone cladding ,and nevertheless for inside usage like interior commercial lobby, decorative wall, shower wall.
Wall panels can be easy installed, dismantled and reused for temporary displaying purposes. We have entered a new stone age where only the lack of imagination might be the limit for our possibilities. You will find it no longer difficult to sacrifice design and style over technical issues. Our ambition of manufacturing stone panels began 11 years ago.
Of course we are neither the first nor the last company that explores this domain, but ever since then we are constant and driven to achieve more with each year of activity that we have behind us as a strong statement of who we are and what values we stand for.
Being located on the east coast of South Florida, we encountered the perfect context to begin developing the production of lightweight stone panels. By stating this, we refer to the coastal marinas that harbor cruising lines, yachts or small boats. The trend of owning a yacht gain dramatic popularity among private owners here in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea.
You can enjoy the luxury of yachting in exotic places or even benefit from the fact of having a boat and rent it. Either way the interior design of the yacht is crucial in this business. So here is the premise from which we came to develop our ideas and business. Ultra thin and weighing only 3.2 pounds/sqf , the aluminum honeycomb stone panels allow the yacht owners to have exquisite natural stone inside their boats, without having to compromise a good functioning.
Natural stone won’t come in the same pattern or with the dull aspect of artificial materials, which can only make it unique and highly appreciated. Marble and granite or onyx and quartz are the most desirable stones in terms of giving that luxurious finishing a yacht is built to offer.
But the stone slabs in their most natural state are heavy and yet fragile as they can easily break. Boats on the other hand must be swift and not heavily charged with the interior amenities. The weight of the stone used for decoration has noticeable effects on the fuel consumption and may impact the capacity of easily handling the boat.
The stone veneer reinforced with the aluminum panel has a mass reduced with 80% from each original piece of stone. The stone panels for yachts need to be very carefully crafted and the highest quality is absolutely mandatory. In this purpose, Stone Panels USA specially developed a hydraulic press to laminate the stone slab with the aluminum honeycomb panel.
The new composite structure is held under pressure for 24 hours, the perfect time period for the epoxy to cure, creating a bond that will hold under any circumstances. The long durability of aluminum honeycomb stone panels may in most cases brilliantly pass the test of time while other decorative materials will perish.

Then the stone slab is split in equal halves with a cutting bridge saw. The thin stone surface is polished to achieve the texture desired by the customer. The process of obtaining two lightweight stone panels out of a solid slab adds significant reductions to the material and installation costs. Stone Panels USA believes only in the fact that one cannot guarantee a product unless it stays behind the manufacturing process.
This is the reason why we chose to produce the lightweight stone panels in our own unit and never import already made cheaper sandwich panels from outside the United States. It may come to our disadvantage that we custom make each panel as required by the customer and not have industrial stocks in the most accessible or popular colors of granite and marble from import, but we want to be defined by our quality and trustworthiness.
