Facestone panels defy gravity with the natural look of stone but light in weight and easy to install

Jan 15, 2016

Richelieu is a leader in the field of innovative cladding and paneling systems, and its new Facestone Collection is more proof of just why. Facestone panels are composite sheets made of authentic natural clay and volcanic ash sedimentary rock. Facestone looks like real stone but is much lighter in weight and can be used on surfaces and areas where natural stone would be too heavy.

Facestone comes in four different finishes that mimic slate, granite and marble-like surfaces. While the panels look natural, they offer all the modern conveniences for easy care and maintenance: highly resistant to stains, humidity and discoloration as well as UV rays and heat. Their light weight also makes them easy to install and they can be cut with standard wood-cutting machinery. The range also includes sheets specially designed for use outdoors.
