Sustainable Natural Stone
When artisans cut marble slabs to size, they typically discard excess material. For the Kanbina Collection, we rescue the best offcuts, shape them to a standard size, and artfully combine them to create a durable and environmentally sustainable building material.
Slabs in the Kanbina Collection are made of the same high-quality natural stone as The Davani Group’s whole-stone slabs and tiles. Our engineers have developed innovative fabrication techniques that allow us to create long-lasting joints between marble sections with minimal grouting — each slab is 99 percent marble and only 1 percent resin.
A Versatile Natural Construction Material
As with all of The Davani Group’s luxury stone products, for the Kanbina Collection, our expert marble buyers source the best natural stone from quarries around the world. We fabricate Kanbina slabs from several types of natural stone, including:
- Italian White Carrara
- A Carrara Mix
- Grey Imperial Bardiglio
- Pietra Cardoso
Slabs are also available in a variety of finishes, including polished, honed, and velvet finishes.
KANBINA LEED CERTIFIED STONE SELECTION
As a natural product of geology, marble is more environmentally friendly and longer-lasting than many synthetic alternatives, but the Kanbina Collection takes sustainability to a new level. Kanbina Collection slabs are compliant with these international sustainability standards:
- BREEAM Certified — The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method is the leading international sustainability standard for infrastructure and buildings.
- LEED Certified — The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification is the most widely used rating system for green buildings.
The Kanbina marble sourcing and fabrication process is designed to have the lowest possible environmental impact. Because the Kanbina Collection is BREEAM and LEED certified, it is the ideal choice for green building projects, including those that intend to leverage green tax credits and other financial incentives for sustainable development.
Easy Installation Natural Stone Slabs
Kanbina slabs are available as fixed-size panels that measure 300 cm by 157 cm with two thickness options: 14 mm and 24 mm. We can also supply panels that are cut to size to meet the needs of individual projects. Because of their size, Kanbina Collection panels can be installed more quickly and efficiently than standard marble tiles, reducing the time and expense of installation.
