Previously the luxurious appearance of stone could only be achieved by the cumbersome & expensive process of installing real heavy stone – Glamstone has now made that history!!!! You can now enjoy the aesthetic appeal of stone in virtually limitless applications.
Glamstone can be used as a decorative cladding for both Interior & Exterior applications. Due to its light weight no further reinforcement is needed as you would have needed for heavy stone, it will not fail even when applied directly to Plasterboard, Gyprock, Cement sheets or Villa Board. It has the look and feel of real stone because it is made from thin layers of real stone.
It can be used for: Feature Walls, Facades, Kitchens -Bar Counters / Splash backs, Bathrooms, Interior Floors, Columns, Displays & Signage, Receptions & Lobby entries, Fence Panels, Marine & RV, Kitchens, Bathrooms, Flooring, Signage etc.
Applications can also be made to the following: Concrete, Ceramic Tiles, Wood, Metal, Plywood, Melamine, Fibreglass, Painted surfaces, MDF, Doors & cabinetry etc
Glamstone is a natural stone veneer, colour and texture variances are not defects within the material, but are inherent to it and form part of the appeal of natural stone. All the colours are batched before packing but it cannot be guaranteed to match from batch to batch, so it is recommended that orders take into account future maintenance or re-fit possibilities.
