About the project
The new state of the art Planetarium exterior features StoneLite® Silver travertine lightweight stone panels in a segmented curved application. The StoneLite® façade vein cut panels were manufactured with horizontal graining. The panels were installed in a stacked bond pattern in a ¼” open joint system with quirk mitered edges along with both 90 degree and non-90 degree finished corners.
The panels were prefabricated with quirk mitered edges on panels with outside corners and bonded finished returns at the joint and soffit conditions.
The flexural strength of StoneLite® panels is an ideal solution for projects in seismic areas.
