RSV Real Stone Veneer® & Lighting
With lighting technology evolving continuously it is our goal to incorporate proven technologies in our products and come up with new and different ideas.
It is no longer enough to stick a neon light behind the material, which still looks o.k. but we can do a lot better.
Take RGB LED's for example (color emitting LED's) which enable us to make the stone appear in different colors with the click of a remote control. If you like your application to show as white Onyx or yellow, you control the appearance. Fade the colors or dim the lights, all no longer a problem.
So here are some of the effects that can be achieved with proper lighting:
- Different colors
- Back lighting
- Back lighting combined with indirect lighting, whereas the indirect light source comes from within the backlit panel.
- Back lighting combined with indirect lighting whereas the indirect light source comes from an outside location.
- Indirect Lighting
- Spot lighting
These methods and more allow us to create a vast array of light solutions showing off a great natural material in a way that was never possible before.
Another optical advantage:
When you look at Onyx Applications involving corners you will see in most cases the shadows where panels are joined. They are a result of substrate materials holding the panels together and/or reflection from the Onyx cut-off itself.
With proper placement of lighting and treatment of the corners and joints we are able to drastically reduce that effect using RSV Real Stone Veneer®
Plain and simple:

Residential & Commercial Applications
RSV Real Stone Veneer® our proprietary surface material
is a Designer's Dream as it can be used to produce literally any size and shape item possibly imaginable.
Designs can be backlit or not
No other stone product will compare to this material! Why?
Let's start with its most intriguing features:
- Translucence or the Allure of backlit stone
It closely resembles Onyx. Some say it looks like molten lava, either way, when backlit it looks stunningly beautiful.
As the material is pretty thin it will need a support backing, which can be any translucent material like glass or plastics.
The color appearance can be manipulated by using different types of light sources ranging from fluorescent to RGB LED's. In other words, the Design element can be controlled to look like yellow or white Onyx or any other desired color (via remote control)
Using different lighting techniques like indirect, perimeter controlled, spot or backlighting we can generate a wide variety of effects that definitely will turn peoples' heads.
The material can be applied to flat, 2-dimensional (curved) or 3-dimensional (spherical) surfaces inside or out, in wet or dry areas.
3-D 2-D (seamless!)
- As the material is ultra-thin - almost comparable to wood veneer - it can like wood veneer be used to produce stone inlays of any kind. This is only possible with RSV Real Stone Veneer®. Weight may be a consideration in some highrise structures. Since our material weighs less than tile, highrise applications do not create problems. The material can also be installed seamlessly to give the appearance of a large slab of rock.
Add to this: Durability, weather resistance, esthetics, general appeal and VERSATILITY and there is a NEW product that definitely has "the edge" over marble, granite, Onyx or tile in many ways.
So what are typical residential applications?
Of course all of them can be backlit
- Wall panels - inserted or offset - any shape
- Niche inserts
- Stair risers
- Floor inserts
- Counter & table tops, backsplashes
- TV backdrops
- Ceiling panels and floating ceilings
- Shower walls
- Wall art
- Planters (for indoors or out)
- Interior and exterior wall ornaments
- Garden, lawn and tree ornaments
- Driveway lights
We custom design and fabricate.
Most items install out-of-the-box.
RSV Real Stone Veneer® our proprietary surface material is derived from natural sandstone formations.
Time saving and easy installation compared to other slab materials
No special structural support necessary
High visual impact especially when backlit
Indoor & out, wet & dry, hot & cold
Various finishes, sealers or laminates (class A)
Backlighting will enable a multitude of colors
Versatility in applications (2-D, 3-D), any shape, any size
Completely seamless applications (not possible with other stone materials)
Light weight thus ideal for highrise apps
INFINITE DESIGN POSSIBILITIES
More technical aspects . . .
|New Construction||or Remodel|
A little stylish
|A little punchy
Your vision + our creativity = exceptional result
What sets us apart?
As opposed to other stone and crystalline products which are monolithic and mostly one dimensional, our Real Stone Surface Material can be applied over ANY shape. Flat, wavy, spherical or any combination and any size.
Other monolithic materials like tile, marble, granite, Onyx, etc. cannot be altered in terms of backing (shape), surface layout and surface appearance.
Our product consists of 3 separate elements: Backing, Surface Material (Layout) & Surface Treatment each one of them can be controlled to fit specific needs like light weight, rigidity, optical appearance and more.
Backlit Real Stone Product is our world!
Any Shape, Any Size, Anywhere!
From conception to engineering and fabrication, we build head turning projects for commercial and residential applications.
Thinking outside the box and delivering product that can be installed right out-of-the-box are our defined goals.
Sediments millions of years old are found in some regions, that allow the production of this very unique material.
