A huge variety of marble is available from around the world. The problem has always been the weight, time and expense of setting heavy marble slabs. StonePly solves that problem. Lightweight and strong stone panels made by StonePly are available in a choice of backing materials: Stoneply HC (natural stone and aluminum honeycomb panels) or Stoneply ACP (stone and aluminum composite panels).
You are probably more familiar with marble than you realize. From Michelangelo's mighty carrara marble David, to the intricately carved cenotaphs of the Taj Mahal, to the royal Marble Arch of Buckingham Palace, marble has been the stuff of civilized architecture and art for centuries. Being a form of limestone, it is softer than granite, making it more susceptible to deterioration and wear but a simple, regular maintenance routine will keep marble looking beautiful.
Marble has a soft, sophisticated aura. Small interior spaces will especially benefit from marble's less "busy" feel when compared to granite thanks to its large, flowing veins.
Certain marbles can be “book matched,” meaning the edges of two panels are paired to create a mirror image. Book matching's effect is best expressed on large panels.
