Weha Introduces Large Heavy Duty Shop Cart

Posted on 27 July 2021 by cradmin4

The new Weha Large Fabrication Shop Cart was made specifically for large and fragile stone fabrication. As stones get larger, more than 10-ft. and taller up to 80-in., those oversized slabs need a larger cart than the traditional dry wall shop carts.

According to the company this new cart is suitable for all shop needs including marble, granite, quartz, quartzite, onyx, porcelain, sintered stone and more.

The cart is manufactured with 1 1/2-in. diameter pipe with three bolted support bars to handle the weight of the stone. The surface deck is 53-in. long by 16-in. deep and the surface deck also comes with a white rubber mat. Between the support bars next to the surface deck, there is a space of 10-in. for additional storage. This will allow for keeping the entire job, or two, on one shop cart throughout the fabrication process.

For any size island or full slab, it will ride safe with very little stress hanging above. The 2 swivel wheels with locks and 2 fixed wheels are 6-in. diameter and are built to safely hold 2640 lbs.

Additionally, the Weha Large Shop Cart comes with a plastic storage bin for a tape measure, pens, markers, etc. to keep with the cart.

Cosentino Adds to SENSA​ Protected Natural Stone Collection

Posted on 18 March 2021 by cradmin

Developed exclusively by Cosentino, Sensa is a maintenance-free premium natural stone with a revolutionary stain protection that, according to the company, rivals the performance of man-made surfacing. Every Sensa slab is different from the rest because each surface has exceptional veining that is found in no other. Sensa by Cosentino comes equipped with Senguard, a deep treatment applied during the manufacturing process that protects the stone, helping eliminate required sealing for years to come.

Six hues join the SENSA Premium collection, which offers protected granite and quartzite surfaces, providing a wider choice of striking designs.

  • Argenti Grey (pictured) ​boasts white horizontal veining across a striking dark surface.
  • Blue Jeans​ evokes the deepest of nature featuring tints of grey, tan and cream hues.
  • Nilo​ captures a dark grey background over striking faded grey veins.
  • Siberia​ features a white background speckled with small black points, evocative of white Siberian snow.
  • Vancouver​ is a beautiful quartzite from Brazil with detailed pink and gray veining.
  • Via Lattea features a black background accompanied by small and soft white veins.

Sensa by Cosentino also comes with a 15-year transferable warranty.
