Light Weight Back Lit Stone and translucent materials

Shown are images of back lit stone using Onyx which is available in numerous colors. Other suitable translucent materials may be used to achieve the same elegant, soft glow effect.

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.
