Surfalite 7MM Advanced Surface Slabs are the Future of Wet Wall Applications
In an industry where trends are constantly evolving, Santamargherita S.p.A’s 7 mm advanced surface, Surfalite, has blended groundbreaking technology with consumer insights to create a surface that is unlike any other on the wet wall surfaces market.
Surfalite combines positive qualities from all of the most popular wet wall surfaces, such as laminate, solid surface, acrylic, fiberglass, porcelain, ceramic and natural stone into a flawless material for surrounding and protecting baths and showers. The resulting surface is resistant to mold, mildew, abrasion, heat, cracks, and dings, while never needing sealing or grouting, all with easy repairability.
“Just as colored tiles and cultured marble were both popular and inspiring surfaces in their times, we at Santamargherita have been working on creating the surface of the future, and market research is showing that consumers prefer the look and feel of engineered stone slabs and porcelain for wet wall applications,” said Vice President of Sales Michele Caneva. “Surfalite combines the lightness of porcelain with the durability of engineered stone.”
Available in large format slabs 130 inches by 65 inches by ¼ inch (330 cm by 165 by 0.7 cm), Surfalite’s unique composition and thinness allow it to maintain a lightweight 3.5 pounds per square foot (17 kilos per square meter) that can be installed in any scenario, granting unlimited creativity to designers and architects.
The advanced surface’s initial range of 16 colors is inspired by natural stone, with more designs coming later this year.
For over 60 years, Santamargherita has been transforming the material into the surface. The quality of its products, its attention to customer needs and deep knowledge of international markets make it one of the leading companies in the production of marble and quartz agglomerates.
Santamargherita is driven by a passion handed down from generation to generation with deep roots in Valpolicella, Italy — a fascinating land stretching between Garda lake and Verona, with a unique culture, tradition and skillset. Whether the shades of stone from Veneto or the painted frescos of Venice, each surface was born from the rich landscape and culture of Italy. The combination of the natural beauty of quartz and marble with a color palette inspired by the region has led to a timeless yet modern collection to fit every design application. The company engineers, manufactures, and tests all its products in the same place where it started more than 50 years ago. Santamargherita’s dedication to sustainability and creativity has remained unchanged. As ambassadors of Made in Italy in the world, the company guarantees the quality of its products, ideal both for residential and commercial projects.
