1200mm x 2400mm
About 3.70 pounds/SF (18Kg/m2), while 11.30 pounds/SF of 3/4" solid marble (travertine, limestone) slab (55Kg/m2). It is only 1/3 weight of 3/4" solid marble (travertine,limestone) slab.
This one Super Thin Stone Panels are an ideal decoration material for high rise building to reduce a lot of weight load,they are also frequently used for old building renovation such as hotel,school,hospital,bathroom,Tub Surround etc.
Time and labor cost save:
Because this type of stone panels are very thin only about 7mm thickness, it is unnecessary to take off the old covering ceramics or tiles, what you need to do is just to cover them onto the old coverings directly,by this way,you can save a lot of time and labor cost.
