Advantages of Porcelain Panels
The Ultimate Architectural Surface
Innovative technology has pushed the limits of design once again. Although porcelain has been an architectural staple for centuries, large-format panels with a slimline thickness (4, 6, 12mm) have shone a new light on porcelain’s unrivalled properties and functionality.
Slimtop’s large format panels range from 1000×1000mm to 3200×1500mm in size, leaving minimal joints for a clean, streamlined appearance. Lightweight and easy to handle, panels can be cut into any shape or size. No sealing is required.
Slimtop can be used in countless interior and exterior applications such as walls and floors, kitchen benchtops and splashbacks, custom furniture, facades, and more.
The cutting edge technology used to manufacture Slimtop Porcelain Panels produces a remarkably strong, non-toxic surface with a resistance to scratching, staining, mould and bacteria, heat, thermal shock, UV rays, frost and ice.
Designed to outperform natural stone and other quarry materials, Slimtop Porcelain Panels transcend when applied as benchtops and splashbacks due to their unrivalled durability. Porcelain is not only hygienic by nature due to its low porosity but also extremely easy to maintain with an ordinary cleaning routine.
Unlike aluminium and render, Slimtop Porcelain Panels do not fade or deteriorate in sunlight as they are UV stable (and non-combustible). High functionality in a variety of climates and weather conditions proves Slimtop to be an excellent choice for outdoor cladding and building facades.
Slimtop Porcelain Panels are a durable and cost effective alternative to marble, natural stone and concrete.
