Why Carpet?

Q : Easy to maintenance
88% of the interior stains are caused by the liquid. Wool’s compactness provides a natural protective layer. Liquid will form into bead on the surface before absorbed by wool. Therefore, we have sufficient time to maintain the hygiene of the wool carpet before the water droplets become stains.
Q : Saves money over time
The sum of the initial cost of carpet, plus the maintenance costs over the total time of the life of the carpet, is usually less than hard surface flooring. Plus, cleaning carpet is less labor intensive. A survey of commerical buildings that had maintenance programs for hard surfaces and carpet demonstrated that carpet cost less to maintain. The study found that hard surface floors require two and one-half times more cleaning time than carpet, and cleaning supplies were about seven times more expensive for vinyl floors than for carpeted floors. While upfront purchase and installation costs are more expensive for carpet than hard flooring, carpet expenditures prove to be more cost-effective over the full life cycle of the product.

STONESLICE Natural Stone Veneer

Q : What is StoneSlice?
StoneSlice is a sheet of real slate stone that, through unique and proprietary technology, we are able to cut into very thin and flexible sheets.
Q : What colors are StoneSlice sheets available in?
We currently have 27 different colors and textures available on a regular basis. Due to the fact that StoneSlice is derived from real stone each sheet, even if within the same color group, will exhibit its own unique coloring and texturing. Due to the limitations of viewing on a web browser the colors shown on your monitor may not match the actual color of the StoneSlice sheet. Please ask for an actual color sample before making your decision.
Q : What sizes are StoneSlice sheets available in?
StoneSlice sheets are available in a wide variety of sizes, the largest currently being 240cm x 90cm. Our standard size sheet, due to the limitations of the process is approximately 1580mm x 720mm, 1210mm x 610mm & 1220mm x 610mm (4' x 2') depend on stones. Each sheet has a thickness between 1-3mm.
Q : What is the difference between StoneSlice and a slab of slate stone?
The main difference lies in the weight. Each standard sheet of StoneSlice weighs approximately 1.6 kilos even though it has a surface area of approximately 1.14 square meters. Therefore, it can be even used as a cladding on non-structural walls, wooden doors, on ceilings etc. Additionally, StoneSlice can be bent to clad curved surfaces as well.
Q : Can it be used outdoors?
Yes, StoneSlice can be used outdoors as it is a real stone surface and so is resistant to sun, UV, and water. We do recommend using STONESLICE waterproof adhesive.
Q : How is STONESLICE installed?
Apply normal adhesives to the sheeting when applying to surfaces. Ensure all normal application protocols of a product of this type are followed. We do recommend STONESLICE water-proof polyurethane (PU) adhesives and have found marine and construction epoxies to be particularly effective. As with any slate product, to bring out the best in StoneSlice we recommend that the product be sealed using normal stone-sealing polyurethane sealants.
Acetones and harsh industrial chemicals may affect the product.
Q : How can it be cut?
StoneSlice is very easily cut to the shapes and sizes you desire for your job. We recommend using a circular wet saw although metal shears will also work where more detail is required in the cut.
Note: As always we recommend proper safety procedures be observed when cutting any material. Please use protective clothing, masks and eye wear.
Q : How long will StoneSlice last?
We can guarantee StoneSlice for a minimum of 10 years but because it is a real stone we have every reason to believe that it will last a lifetime.
