Autumn Brown Granite is identified by the shades of auburn that tint it. It provides an appeal that is softly romantic yet darkly mysterious at the same time. For those who want to maintain an element of surprise in their designs, it is the perfect choice.
Also called Newton Granite, Autumn Brown granite is formed as portions of magma buried deep beneath the earth slowly cools and then solidifies. The combination of heat and pressure which marks its birth produces a material that is characterized by it's great strength. StonePly Autumn Brown Granite panels can withstand heat, water, and seismic activity. It also has an erosion factor of about 0.125" per thousand years, which makes it last for a very long time.
Using Stoneply's Autumn Brown Granite stone panels has many advantages. Not only is the impact strength of the granite increased by up to 60 times, it also does not warp like some solid stones can. The StonePly granite panels are proven to stand up against acid rain and other environmental hazards. Lightweight and simple to install, its use is fast and convenient. It is no wonder then that these stone panels are extremely successful when used for interior and exterior cladding, granite curtain walls, elevator panels, and spas and saunas.
Like the season that it is named after, Autumn Brown Granite signals a transition into a new season. It evokes a promise of something better, a better way of building and better use of materials. StonePly granite cladding is the blank canvas in which imagination knows no bounds.
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.
