Mergal’s approach is both an art and a science. They delve deep into the history of spaces, often uncovering forgotten tales that then inspire their designs. Their “research and discovery” phase has led to some intriguing finds, like 19th-century manuscripts in a renovation project, which they then incorporated into the design narrative.Mergal was behind the restoration of one of the city’s oldest buildings, a historic 5- story townhouse in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. While the owners were enamoured with the original interiors, Mergal seamlessly integrated modern amenities, ensuring the residence retained its Renaissance charm. The transformation included the addition of a six-stop residential elevator, comprehensive reorganisation of the upper floors to house 12 bedrooms with individual bathrooms, and a thorough upgrade of all essential systems.

In a world where sustainability and innovation often go hand-in-hand, RealRok™ is setting new standards in the realm of natural stone veneers. With its ultra-thin, reinforced design, RealRok™ is not just a product; it’s a game-changer in the industry.

RealRok™ is an ultra-thin, reinforced, natural stone veneer that comes in expansive 4 x 10 feet sheets.

General contractors will find the installation process to be quick and straightforward. Once sealed with a natural stone sealer of your choice, RealRok™ becomes a low-maintenance, stain-resistant surface that can be easily cleaned with mild soap and warm water. Moreover, it is resistant to scratches, heat, impact, and corrosive chemical agents, making it a durable choice for any setting.

One of the standout features of RealRok™ is its thickness—or rather, its lack thereof. With a thickness ranging from 0.024 inches to a maximum of 0.12 inches, it is significantly thinner than traditional natural stones like granite, which usually have a minimum thickness of 0.39 inches. This unique feature allows for the production of thousands of feet of veneer while conserving valuable natural resources.

The practicality of RealRok™ is set to make it a popular choice in the world of decorative products. Its flexibility is a significant advantage, allowing for installation on curved surfaces like round columns and walls. Essentially, the only limit to how you can use RealRok™ is your imagination.

RealRok™ is committed to environmental sustainability, not just in its end product but also in its production process. The company employs methods that are more efficient and eco-friendly than conventional stone production techniques. This results in fewer particles released into the environment and less waste overall.
