The lightweight slate honeycomb panels from Eightbond are really the best of all worlds, combining the beauty, style and classic look of natural slate or other stone with a unique, high quality backing panel made from honeycombed aluminum or fiberglass. This works to create a panel that weighs about 80% less than solid stone and is also much better able to withstand weather, installation, transport and other issues without cracking or being damaged. The design of our lightweight slate honeycomb panels makes them perfect for basically any and all applications where you desire the look of real stone, but don’t want to struggle with the other problems that come along with it—from interior and exterior walls, floors, ceilings and soffits to pools, showers, countertops and much more.
Advantages of Using Lightweight Slate Honeycomb Panels:
By giving you the look of natural slate with the incredible space age strength of the honeycomb backing panel, you get a stone product that far outperforms all others and had the durability to even withstand hurricanes or earthquakes due to its incredible shear strength and flexibility. While solid stone is incredibly heavy, making it tough to install, these lightweight panels can be installed with much less time and effort, even at heights or installing overhead.
Our lightweight slate honeycomb panels start off with a real piece of stone veneer about 3-5mm in thickness, which is then adhered using ultra strong glue applied with high temperature and pressure to an aluminum honeycomb panel that is resistant to impact, flexible and able to withstand almost anything nature could throw at it. It is water, rust and fire resistant and can help reduce energy costs due to its insulating qualities.
