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.

Posted on 23 July 2021 by cradmin4

Architectural Surfaces Group, an importer and distributor of natural stone, engineered stone and tile for residential and commercial applications, announced the strategic rebranding of its regional brands AG&M, Pental Surfaces and Modul Marble as Architectural Surfaces.

The new name leverages the company’s national presence to provide brand clarity and streamline the customer experience for fabricators, architects and interior designers working in both the residential kitchen and bath and commercial construction industries. Customers now have the clarity and ease of engaging with one brand across the 20-plus U.S. markets Architectural Surfaces serves rather than three brands that varied by region.

With Architectural Surfaces, fabricators and designers will continue to enjoy a deep inventory of globally sourced materials, a robust national distribution network and industry experts who understand the unique needs of their market.

“In consolidating under the Architectural Surfaces brand, we brought together the core elements of each regional brand’s DNA just as we are bringing together our employee and customer base to form a stronger national brand.” says Patrick Dussinger, President of Architectural Surfaces.

Polycor Makes Plan to be Carbon Neutral by 2025

Posted on 21 April 2021 by cradmin

Polycor Inc., a quarrier of natural stone, announced in honor of Earth Day, it plans to be carbon neutral by the end of 2025. Polycor is the first natural stone quarrier to make a firm commitment to carbon neutrality, and among the first in the manufacturing industry to take a leadership role on the essential work of decarbonization.

Polycor has a history of embracing environmental challenges, from its use of closed-system rainwater to owning 30 percent of all “Natural Stone Sustainability Standard” certified sites. Polycor recently announced an internal network of 15 Sustainability Champions to identify innovative solutions, from waste reduction to increasing processing efficiencies. While natural stone is already inherently sustainable and a zero-VOC material, Polycor remains committed to flattening the curve on carbon emissions.

This carbon neutral 2025 commitment demonstrates Polycor’s committed to science-based protection of the environment. The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) identifies the year 2030 as a tipping point that will require significant reduction in emissions. The building industry, which accounts for 39 percent of annual global GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions, bears a tremendous responsibility to mitigate global environmental risk.

Patrick Perus, CEO of Polycor Inc. commented, “This decision is also in line with the will of customers and partners in the industry, who are increasingly demanding environmentally friendly products and suppliers, showing a generalized awareness throughout the industry.”

According to the National Retail Federation, nearly 80 percent of consumers say sustainability is important to them, and more than 70 percent are even willing to pay more if it means their products are sustainable.

To help support its goal of being carbon neutral by 2025, Polycor will focus its efforts and improvements on the following areas:

  • Electrification: By the end of 2025, Polycor will increase its use of renewable energy so that 75 percent of its energy comes from renewable sources.
  • Fuel use: Polycor will significantly reduce its traditional carbon-based fuel use. Through installing electrical charging stations at plants, and prioritizing new vehicles with alternative fuel sources, the company will significantly increase the miles per gallon across its fleet.
  • Waste reduction: Polycor will meaningfully increase production efficiencies; these efficiencies will increase product yield, emphasize sustainable packaging, reduce chemical use, and will prioritize recycling and reuse.
  • Offsetting and rehabilitation: Carbon offsetting activities, such as upcoming tree planting campaigns, will create essential carbon sinks, decreasing the net total of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. From the beautification to the repurposing of former production sites, rehabilitation and reclamation will be an important sustainability activity for Polycor and will provide immediate benefits to local communities.

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.
