Granique® Switch Plates are produced using our unique method to simulate the look of granite, marble or other stone materials. In many cases, it is hard to tell them apart from natural stone. These plates are actually photographic images of real stone molded onto a layer of acrylic. A protective coating is then applied to prevent damage to the photo. All plates are oversized to allow extra room for the larger cut-outs made in stone.
Advantages of Granique® Switch Plates:
- There are 32 standard colors
- Lead time is short at approximately 2 weeks
- An undercut is already built into back of the plate
- Colors are consistent, unlike granite, which varies from
slab to slab
The disadvantage of Granique® is that some colors are closer than others. The specialized photographic process cannot always duplicate nature; therefore, there will be certain colors which may not be an exact match. For example, Blue Pearl is barely acceptable, but Butterfly Green is very close.
Because stone is created by nature, there are literally
thousands of different colors and variations. We color correct
to average light. The same photo will look different when viewed
under incandescent, fluorescent or natural light. When using our
sample chain, be sure to view the colors under the same lighting
conditions as those found in your client's home.

Granique® Plug Covers
Granique® plug covers are included . These covers are peel
and stick to cover the actual receptacle or Decora® switch. The
only thing you will see is granite, not an unsightly plastic
outlet. On Decora® plates, you must specify whether it is a
switch, a plug or a GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter).
