The latest range of lightweight and pliable facade boards with the look and feel of Stone
These latest range of ROCKPANEL facades are not only visually impressive, but an economical and environmentally sustainable alternative to conventional natural stone or concrete. Panels can be easily applied in a curved façade to create striking structural contours.
The panels, made of long-lasting volcanic basaltic rock, offers a lightweight façade with each panel weighing just 8.4kg/m²; ideal for use on high-rise buildings. ROCKPANEL Stones are as easy to process as wood and can be bent without pre-treatment but are as sturdy and long-lasting as stone. Architects and designers have a wide range of colour options and design variations to create authentic stone appearance facades without the high costs.
The panel surfaces are coated with a complex, water-based polymer emulsion on the exposed side, ensuring that they remain attractive, colourfast and glossy for years to come. The additional standard ProtectPlus layer protects against graffiti as well as UV rays and possible dirt adhesion. ProtectPlus increases the self-cleaning capacity of the panels and dirt deposits are washed away by rainwater.
Easy to handle
The panels can be mounted on a simple substructure of wood or aluminium and can be fixed using corrosion-protected screws, nails or blind rivets or even special adhesive. Detailing can be carried out with precision on site without the need for time consuming preparations. The panels can be adjusted using standard tools which are also suitable for wood. In addition, the panels can be easily bent onsite, without any special pre-treatment, to form curved and contoured surfaces with a stone or concrete look.
Like all ROCKPANEL products, the new series is long-lasting and almost fully recyclable. This results in an excellent environmental assessment for production, mounting, use and recycling, certified with Green Guide ratings of A+ or A by the British Research Establishment (BRE). The façade panels have an independently and officially confirmed lifespan of 60 years.
