Stone Veneer Applications
StoneLite® panels are versatile and are suitable for a variety of applications. StoneLite® is applicable where solid dimensional stone is specified or as an alternative when dimensional stone is too heavy to be economical. Contact us to determine if StoneLite® panels are right for your project. Below are some common uses for StoneLite® panels:
StoneLite® panels have over four decades of proven performance on the exterior of buildings throughout the world. After many years of exposure to many different environments and being subjected to extreme heat, bitter cold, earthquakes and hurricanes, the panels not only retain their natural beauty but remain durable and continue to perform.
StoneLite® interior stone panels showcase the natural beauty of stone but eliminate its fragile, brittle, and variable properties. StoneLite® interior stone panels are ideal for overhead applications. Weighing only 3.3 lbs. per sq. ft. StoneLite® panels are easily supported by common ceiling framing and can be quickly installed with no special lifting equipment required.
StoneLite® natural stone panels are a great exterior cladding option for high end multi-family residences. StoneLite® panels are not only an attractive and affordable alternative to dimensional stone but they allow the architect’s vision to be realized without the cumbersome difficulties associated with other cladding options. Their lightweight characteristics are ideal for architectural features such as cornices, fins, and cantilevered structures.
StoneLite® panels are a natural fit for retail construction as they meet the demand of quick installation and the natural stone veneer exemplifies the high quality image that retailers require. Retail projects also require durable materials to endure the abuse that comes with a high volume of traffic. Tough, durable StoneLite® panels offer fantastic impact resistance and flexural strength provided by our patented manufacturing process. They can resist up to 60 times more impact than solid 3 cm solid granite.
StoneLite® natural stone composite panels are an ideal solution for renovations due to their lightweight adherent capabilities, quick installation time, and may be installed over other materials reducing demolition and haul off costs. The incorporation of natural stone panels into a building’s renovation immediately adds value and the installation process does not require tenants to be displaced.
