More Detail:

First off, we produce only entire projects which include:

  • lens or decorative surface
  • back plate (typically sheet metal with a lip all around and welded at the corners and powder coated
  • all lighting components.
  • all necessary hardware to mount the feature
  • special tools if so needed
  • detailed instructions
  • phone support at installation, if needed

We make sure to deliver everything needed for a successful installation and so the installer(s) do not have to leave the job site for additional purchases of any kind.

All of our backlit projects are tested and designed/ adjusted so that the surface material is illuminated properly without showing any LED nodes, cold or hot spots. We are frequently asked to supply the surface while others will do the lighting. For aforementioned reasons and the fact that third parties likely are not familiar with our surface materials, we tend to stay away from that approach.

About the Surface Material

As opposed to tile or slab material which is rigid, monolithic and cannot be altered, our material can be controlled in a number of ways to suit the intended purpose.

The visible part of a finished product (the lens or decorative surface) consists of three elements:

The backing, i.e. Acrylic, glass, wood, metal, etc. which can be shaped any possible way from flat to wavy, spherical or anything else.

The surface material itself- our proprietary RSV Real Stone Veneer® - which can be laid out as desired. Seamless application, altering striations or stone inlay, etc. are no longer an issue.

The surface finish which can be kept naturally course or be treated to be glossy.. In order to make surfaces more impact resistant they can be improved by laminating them with glass, Acrylic, lami glass, etc. Laminated surfaces cannot be 2 or 3-dimensional.

All three components can be controlled individually before or during assembly and are cut, joined or applied with state-of-the-art equipment.

The term VENEER is used in all kinds of products often times defying the original meaning which is a 'thin covering". Here a quick comparison of major characteristics:

 

 

Stone Veneer is not the same as Stone Veneer
