The color green is said to calm the senses. It has a delicate palette that is like a salve for those looking for a restful respite. Atlantic Green granite can be that oasis. This sea green stone is also known as Vert Atlantique Granite. Its distinctly cool color makes it a choice material for spas, hotels, and other places that require a standard of elegance and tranquility.
But behind its gentle exterior lies a force to be reckoned with. As a type of granite, Atlantic Green is an incredibly dense stone. One of the toughest of stones in terms of hardness, granite can withstand even the most extreme of conditions. When bonded to the aluminum honeycomb of the StonePly system, Atlantic Green granite can endure heat, water, wind and even seismic activity. This makes it a premium material for wall cladding, water features, elevator cabs, and wainscoting.
Through Stoneply's superior HC technology, the granite is bonded with high-grade aluminum honeycomb to improve upon what nature has already offered. The result is a product that is lightweight and easy to install. More than this increased efficiency and ease of use; the stone panels also have an increased strength. StonePly Atlantic Green granite stone panels have up to 60 times the impact strength of solid granite slabs. It also has great flexural strength, which makes it capable of withstanding high wind loads.
The demands of today's architecture often require the most advanced materials and technology. StonePly Atlantic Green Granite provides just that. As durable as it is beautiful, its use is an assurance that the right choice has definitely been made.
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.
