Archi Studio extends the creative boundaries for architects and designers by producing surfaces beyond expectation and imagination. Visually indistinguishable from solid stone, Archi Studio subverts the ‘veneer’ of traditional surface finishes by creating the illusion of solidity through the use of innovative materials, colours and textures.
Our Flexible Slate Panel collection is constructed out of a micro-thin slate veneer that can be applied to many different indoor and outdoor surfaces. It is light weight and flexible allowing it to be used in many applications including vertical and horizontal surfaces not previously considered for stone due to weight and / or flaking issues.
Our Micro-Thin Flexible Slate Panels compose of a natural stone laminated to a fiberglass substrate.
Since it is a natural stone veneer, color and texture variances are not defects within the material, but are inherent to it and part of the natural beauty of quarried materials. Due to this characteristic, our Flexible Slate Panels cannot be guaranteed to match panel to panel, so it is recommended that orders take into account future maintenance or re-fit possibilities.
Our Micro-Thin Flexible Slate Panels are produced with a fiberglass backing. As a result, in certain instances, a seam will be noticeable when used in back-lit applications.
Our Micro-Thin Flexible Slate Panels are perfect for wall applications, furniture, mill work, lighting, column cladding and numerous other interior and exterior applications. A popular application is as a door cladding.
Our Micro-Thin Flexible Slate Panels are not recommended for flooring or counter top applications due to the thin soft nature of the Flexible Slate stone veneer.
Our Micro-Thin Flexible Slate Panels can be applied to standard building surfaces with most FRP compatible adhesives.
Our Micro-Thin Flexible Slate Panels can be cut with a masonry disc or laminate blade on a table saw or with snips. Cutting curves is best done using long nose tin snips.
Dimensions: 610mm X 1,220mm X 2mm. Other sizes available on special order in some colours
