Weight consideration for the cruise ship industry

Land Division

Lightweight natural stone honeycomb surface tops are designed to provide higher strength and faster installation for exterior and interior applications. They offer excellent options for almost any fitout product where you’re looking for that natural stone look, but without the weight or fragility that typically accompanies it.

These honeycomb surface tops use a thin piece of natural stone veneer (5mm thick) which is attached to an IMO approved aluminium honeycomb backing panel that provides incredible strength and durability. The two pieces are bonded together with industrial strength glue under high temperature and pressure to create panels that are built to last.

With the ever increasing need to reduce weight on cruise ships, this method of stone fabrication will ensure a 30%-40% reduction in weight relating to stone installation.
