We work with many different clients in many different environments and over 10 years we have been able to perfect our backlighting offering.
We are often contacted by Designers, Architects, Contractors and homeowners about backlighting onyx but often the client looks through our portfolio and sees other surface materials that are a lot more intriguing
Some examples of the products that we specialize in illuminating are shown below
A great alternative to granite, marble, and other more popular stone surfaces, onyx provides a sleek and modern look to any workspace. Onyx is formed in caves as stalactites and stalagmites drip to form this precious stone. Onyx Countertops are a rarity as they bring a unique appearance with strikingly dramatic appeal.
Quartzite is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock. It is created when sandstone is subjected to extreme heat and pressure caused by tectonic plate compression in the crust of the earth. The stone is mined and sawn into slabs which are later precisely cut to become countertops.
These stone slabs are the perfect combination of human’s and nature working together to create something truly special, they are made from cut or prepared stone embedded in resin. Cut and polished semi -precious stones are placed close together. This results in an amazing one of a kind countertop. Some options for semi -precious countertops are blue agate, red agate, jade, jasper, tiger eye, rose quartz and amethyst.
Natural-stone slabs are mined, but Quartz slabs are engineered in a factory. Their primary ingredient is ground quartz combined with polyester resin and pigments to give it color. For some designs, small amounts of recycled glass or metallic flecks are added to the mix.
