Could you expand on the weight advantages you just told us about? Could you give us an example of a real case?
The advantages are vast, both in flooring and in the veneer. For example, in flooring, we have just placed the entire surface of a bathroom with one piece.
In veneer, more of the same, we are placing pieces of 2900*1400 mm. That is to say, complete walls in one piece and without joints!
In the case of technical floors, what improvement does an ultra-lightweight stone floor introduce?
Hardness and lightness. The tests carried out regarding the hardness are amazing.
You often function as the “technical link” between the designer or project manager of the client company and the factory technicians. What is the role of your department in this regard?
You said it very well: technical link!
We are in charge of transmitting the client’s demands into reality. After making a measurement, we prepare drawings as well as the list of all the parts in “factory” language.
Then, once the parts arrive from the factory, we materialize the customer’s design; no matter how complex it may be.
Could you explain how the small modifications are carried out at the installation site to mold each part to its final location completely?
We have always done this, both with traditional dimensional stone and now with Stonesize. Modifications at the installation site are usually minimal. We prefer to leave it all laid out and very tightly measured in order not to touch anything later. The type of adjustment we make onsite is only that of the boxing. Another advantage of Stonesize is that, in these situations, it cuts and fits much better because it is 5 mm. of marble and not 2 cm.
