Title: FREE ISSUE STONE – Converting Client’s Own Solid Stone to Lightweight Stone

Imagine being in the midst of a project, with the stone already chosen and approved by the architects, designers, and clients; the stone is already purchased. However, it’s later found that the solid stone is too heavy, thick, and/or fragile for the existing subfloor or wall structure. Time is running out, and changing materials is not an option.

At Grama Blend, we specialize in collecting our clients’ solid stone, whether it’s from the site, their fabricator, or their suppliers. We have the expertise to process heavy, thick stone into our unique lightweight stone solutions, which can be used for various applications like retail displays, furniture pieces, walls, floors, tops, and even ceilings.

In the ever-evolving world of construction, staying ahead of the curve is essential. Technological advancements bring innovative solutions that challenge traditional practices. One innovation gaining traction is the conversion of solid stone into lightweight stone. This transformative process is revolutionising the construction industry, offering a plethora of benefits for builders, designers, and customers alike. In this article, we will delve into the remarkable advantages of converting solid stone to lightweight panels.

Unleashing the Power of Lightweight Stone:
Solid stone has always captivated us with its timeless beauty, durability, and appeal. However, its weight can pose significant challenges during construction, making transportation and installation labour-intensive, time-consuming, and costly. This is where the conversion to lightweight stone comes into play. Through over 20 years of refining our techniques, we can now transform solid stone into lightweight quicker and more effectively.

Advantages for Interior Companies and Designers:
Enhanced Efficiency: Traditional solid stone requires specialised equipment and a large labour force for installation, and often lifting gear. By converting it into lightweight stone, we significantly reduce the weight, making handling and installation easier, quicker, and more cost-effective.

Design Versatility: Lightweight stone provides unparalleled design flexibility, enabling architects and designers to explore innovative possibilities. This newfound versatility opens up endless design options that were previously limited by the weight and rigidity of solid stone.
Structural Integrity: Despite their reduced weight, the lightweight stone retains its structural integrity while becoming more flexible. Our conversion process ensures that essential qualities such as strength and durability are preserved. Builders can confidently incorporate these lightweight stone elements into their projects without compromising safety or longevity.

With sustainability at the forefront of construction practices, lightweight stone offers an environmentally friendly alternative. By utilizing approx. 50% fewer slabs of stone, and therefore requiring fewer resources during transportation and installation, our conversion process helps reduce the environmental impact associated with solid stone.

With over 25 years of experience, Grama Blend specialises in producing lightweight stone solutions and strives to reshape stone construction practices through cutting-edge techniques. By harnessing the weight-saving and thickness reduction of lightweight ultra-thin stone, we create stone features that seamlessly blend beauty, functionality, and sustainability.
