The Honeycomb panel behind the veneer acts like an I-beam system providing strength and stiffness far beyond solid stone. Yet, with less material involved, the product is also much lighter. The veneer and honeycomb backing are most often attached to building walls via aluminum clips — the ease of installation brings the cost way down.
With flex and resistance, Honeycomb stone can withstand 60 times more impact than a 3cm think piece of granite. It is also approximately 80% lighter than solid stone, which hugely impacts installation cost and structural requirements. With its strength, less weight and lower cost, Honeycomb Veneer is an excellent option compared to solid stone.
The veneer can be made out of a wide selection of stone, the most frequently used being: granite, marble, limestone, travertine and onyx.
