Amadeus Granite Cladding Panels: The Bigger Picture

There are some materials which have such an impact that one glance is not enough to take it all in. Amadeus Granite is one such material. Because the texture of the granite stretches over a large area, a small section of Amadeus Granite is not sufficient to fully appreciate its beauty. To accommodate its striking presence, a bigger picture is required. With each swirl of color, the value of Amadeus Granite is revealed. This stone is infused with shades of black and purple, making for a remarkable palette. As such, Amadeus Granite provides for a visual feast.

But as with other granites, the aesthetics of the stone is a complement to its natural strength. Granite is very dense material. Forged by millions of years of intense heat and pressure, the process by which it is created ensures that it can hold up against the rigors of daily existence. Amadeus Granite can endure erosion and weathering quite well, helping to ensure a lasting design. Also, with an absorption rate of 0.1 to 0.15 percent, it is resistant to water. More so, StonePly reinforces the granite's natural strength to ensure it can withstand natural occurrences such as hurricanes and seismic activity quite well.

With the addition of Stoneply's advanced honeycomb aluminum technology, Amadeus Granite has evolved to keep pace with the more exacting demands of the modern builder. The natural stone is combined with aluminum composite using a special resin resulting in a superior product. With this system, Amadeus Granite stone panels are shipped faster and installed easier due to its light weight. Durability is increased because these stone panels have an impact strength of up to 60 times more than regular granite. Also, Amadeus Granite comes in a variety of finishes such as honed, polished, and flamed. Because of its excellent traits in both resilience and appearance, Amadeus granite stone panels are an ideal material for exterior building cladding, interior wall panels, as well as other commercial uses.

Amadeus Granite is similar to Tropical Green, which comes from India. Also known as Amadeus Green, Amadeus granite is quarried in Finland.

For those who are looking to make their mark with a design that satisfies both form and function, StonePly is the right choice. Each panel of StonePly Amadeus granite is made to make an impression and each impression is made to last.

Other than diamonds, rubies, and sapphires, granite is the hardest natural stone. Granite is the preferred stone for exterior cladding as it is known for its strength and resistance to the elements. Unlike marble, granite is a very low maintenance choice for your building exterior; it is extremely resistant to heat, scratching, and stains.

Quarried all over the world, granite comes in a wide variety of colors. Typically you find granite finished with a high polish to show off the beautiful array of colors and natural grain. Granite's appearance is phenomenal for exterior applications or interior accents but can sometimes look too "busy" in confined spaces. To meet the need of current trends, granite can be honed, sandblasted, or have other textures applied to soften its natural tones and provide a very aesthetically pleasing panel.

Granite is not only found in commercial cladding applications but is a favorite for counter tops and flooring as well. The stone is extremely durable and easily maintained and cleaned. Being harder than marble and limestone, granite surpasses other stones in its ability to resist staining and acidic materials.

If your requirements call for a stone that has permanence, enduring texture and color, along with complete freedom from deterioration and maintenance, then granite is an ideal candidate for your project.
