Utilizing the combined technologies of light weight honeycomb stone construction and flat panel lighting we are able to achieve a soft glow for countertops. Suggested uses include bathroom vanities, bar tops and mini bar countertops. Your imagination is the only limitation as to what you can achieve with a elegant soft glow to countertops.
We use the same technology used to manufacture our granite counter tops to provide light weight, highly durable back lit onyx countertops. Countertops are manufactured to specification using one piece construction. The flat panel lighting is applied between the honeycomb and the stone then glued together to provide a beautiful glow to countertops, vanity's, bar tops and exteriors. There is no heat generated from Flat Panel Lighting, and nothing to shatter or break.
The lighting may be turned off by connecting it to a light switch or dimmer control to modify the brightness of the lighting.
Flat panel lighting may also be cut and shaped and then adhered to the bottom of glass sinks below the counter line to give the sink a soft glow to set the mood or eliminate night lights.
