Already widely regarded as a lead player in the creation of stylish bathrooms, wetrooms and spa facilities, UK manufacturer Marmox was able to unveil extensions to its widely specified range at this year’s Surface Design Show in London (7-9th February) earning particular interest in its new Slicedstone Sheets.
The Sales and Marketing team were on hand throughout the three days at The Business Design Centre, Islington, showcasing the new large format version of mosaic style product introduced in 2020. Still displaying the beautiful colour variations of natural Indian sandstone, the new Slicedstone Sheets are available in two sizes – 1220 x 610mm, 2100 x 1050mm & 2400 x 1050mm.
However, the new product’s slimline form – at just 4 (±1.5) mm thick and supplied on a specially formulated decoupling layer – means they can still be applied to curved surfaces both indoors and out.
The Marketing Manager for Marmox, Grant Terry, commented: “Our customers have shown great creativity in their use of the original Slicedstone offering and we are certain that the new large format sheets will prove equally popular, displaying the same beauty of natural Indian limestone, but in a way that makes them ideal for cladding/covering larger wall areas.
Their manufacture means they are both flexible and fully waterproof, as well as lightweight – being between 2.5 and 3.0kg per square metre – making them straightforward to install. They will work well in domestic bathrooms and wetrooms as well as in commercial situations like spas.”
Utilising the latest technology, Slicedstone Sheets are cut from the surface of Indian sedimentary rock and then re-engineered with a stabilised backing. The natural stone blend substrate is treated with a clear polycarbonate solution to offer a flexible surface that is both stable and fully resistant to water as well as being stain resistant: which allows for the easy removal of grout and adhesive residue.
Being in large format means, compared to conventional tiling, savings will be made on the cost of grout and adhesive as well as the reduced labour through quicker installation.
Marmox Slicedstone Veneers will be available to order from 1st March, with leads times depending on sheet size. For more info visit www.marmox.co.uk/slicedstoneveneer
