StonePeak is a pioneer in the development and production of large, slim and lightweight porcelain panels. These revolutionary panels
give a fresh look to continuous surfaces and combine the durable characteristics of porcelain with the beauty of a natural slab of quarried
stone or stained concrete.
Through concentrated research and state-of-the-art technology, StonePeak has patented the first 60" x 120" large porcelain panel of its
kind. The new formulation of raw materials allows for a slimmer, more light-weight, full-bodied panel with no fiberglass back netting.
THRU-COLOR The color runs through the tile’s thickness for enhanced surface wear resistance, which makes it perfect for high-traffic areas.
GLAZED A subtle glazed surface provides the easiest maintenance for residential and light-commercial applications.
INKJET The most detailed imaging perfectly replicates the beauty of natural material; however, Inkjet porcelain outperforms natural material.
GAUGED PANEL TECHNOLOGY StonePeak Ceramics is the first and only US tile manufacturer to produce large format porcelain panels ranging in thickness from 6mm to 20mm
Exclusive StonePeak Finishes: Polished/Glossy, Lappato, Honed/Matte, Textured StonePeak’s high-tech polishing techniques create a range of finishes that give its tile distinctive looks for a variety of uses. The shiny, mirror-like appearance of the polished finish is achieved using a special stone head that polishes the tile. Glossy wall tile, on the other hand, gets its sheen from a shiny glaze and does not get polished on the polishing line. Elegantly uneven, the lappato finish is rendered with a specially-shaped resin, while textured tile is pressed into the desired shape and pattern. An InkJet printer is used to apply a non-shiny glaze to honed or matte tile, giving it a flat finish that does not reflect light.
Keil Concealed Undercut Anchors System. The GHS undercut anchor system uses horizontal rails, which are attached to the vertical T-Profiles and the L-Brackets. C-Brackets fastened to the tile, with the keil concealed undercut anchor, transfer the load of the tile onto the sub-frame. GHS System is used with 8mm and 10mm thick porcelain slabs.
EXPOSED ANCHOR SYSTEM
The GHV exposed anchors attach the porcelain tiles directly to the vertical T-Profiles.
The exposed anchors are painted to match with the porcelain slabs color being installed.
The horizontal rails are eliminated with the GHV exposed system.
GHV System is used with 8mm and 10mm thick porcelain slabs.
Structural Silicon Adhesion System (for large exterior ventilated systems)
Structural silicon is used in lieu of traditional mechanical anchors to adhere the 60"x120", 6mm thick porcelain slabs.
The cut-to-size slabs are fabricated at the factory and shipped to the jobsite with the structural support frame already adhered.
C-brackets are screwed to the aluminum structural beams, which attach the slabs to the sub-frame horizontal rails located on the aluminum sub-frame.
VFS, is an exterior cladding choice for buildings which combines the aesthetic appeal of porcelain slabs with the excellent thermal performance of the material. From a structural point of view, L-brackets (attached to the building envelope extend outward from the building envelope to accommodate the different types of exterior continuous thermal insulation and a cavity for airflow) to the extruded aluminium sub-frame. Using this construction technique, the surface of the open porcelain façade cladding system remains separate from the building structure. The resulting cavity is partially filled with a layer of thermal insulation leaving the rest of the cavity empty to allow ventilation. This continuous flow of air provides significant benefits in terms of breathability and reducing thermal bridging—thus making the building more energy efficient.
StonePeak porcelain tile is made of 100% natural components, including quartz, clay, kaolin, feldspar, and silica. The tile does not contain sealants, waxes, epoxies, man-made binders and artificial coloring agents. After a high-tech production process, the material reaches its outstanding characteristics of hardness, strength and durability, while keeping its natural appearance.
StonePeak’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility employs environmentally friendly practices throughout its production process.
The production facility is a nearly closed-loop process that recycles almost all raw materials and water waste back into the production cycle.
Antipollution Devices: exceed the minimum standards required by law, including smoke depurators, sand depurators, water purifiers, reutilization of heat from the kilns and reutilization of production losses.
Packaging: recycled materials whenever possible.
Nestled in the hills of Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains, StonePeak Ceramics is a company with a uniquely American character that has honored the time-proven tradition of fine Italian porcelain ceramics since 2005. StonePeak combines over 50 years of experience with the most advanced technologies in the industry to create products of the highest aesthetic quality and technological performance.
