Merge Design Company, exclusive manufacturer of extremeconcrete™ line of eco-sensitive materials, announced the availability of large format, 3cm thick slabs of extremeconcrete for surfacing. Each 3cm thick slab is 60 in. by 108 in., weighs approximately 14 lbs. per sq. ft. and is now available in every extremeconcrete concrete color and material. According to the company the slabs are designed with fabricators in mind, and are easily fabricated and installed just like natural stone, utilizing the same tools and techniques to achieve predictable results.
“In addition to our custom sized slabs, we wanted to make this industry standard available for easier management and fabrication,” said Peter Bustin, president of Merge Design Company.
Extremeconcrete has evolved to become as much as 85 percent recycled content diverted from waste streams. Most ingredients in extremeconcrete are sourced from within a 500 mile radius, making it a desirable LEED-contributing material.
