Stone – Coat is a unique stone effect product exclusively manufactured by ourselves and is ideal for both commercial and residential applications. Stone- Coat can be moulded to suit any profile and shape and because of its lightweight properties enables both architects and specifiers a greater flexibility compared to using traditional materials.
Over the years Stone-Coat has been successfully used in a diverse range of projects. For example, in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, a Century old primary school had its badly corroded parapets replaced with a uniquely moulded pseudo-stone alternative created from Stone-Coat
One of the major advantages of using Stone-Coat is that not only can the original profiles, including intricate detailing, be matched but the cost of materials and installation is substantially lower than usual methods.
Cost saving and ease of installation are two major factors for any construction project and even more so when it’s social housing. Build-Lite has been closely involved with a number of local authorities and housing associations over the years that has enabled projects to go ahead that would more than likely stall due to funding restrictions.
One of the unique benefits of Stone-Coat is that mouldings can be created in any shape and profile thereby making it ideal for older properties where no one dwelling is likely to have the same exact specification. The product can be fitted using lightweight equipment and thanks to its lightweight nature can be safely carried to and around the site, fully complying with all HSE regulations.
Stone-Coat is a versatile addition to the specifier’s armoury in that we can create a moulding to suit any profile. As you can see from these examples, Stone-Coat can be used to create copings, parapets, door surrounds, replacement chimney stacks, cills, keystones, architectural corbels, and even columns and balustrades. We say that if it can be drawn and spec’d we can create it.
It can be cut to any shape or design, coated with a variety of finishes and installed in less time than it would take to fix traditional products. It provides a perfect solution for commercial projects, especially those that require features such as decorative band courses, detailed cornices or just a simple coping.
Stone–Coat is equally at home on residential projects. From new builds where the product is specified for its flexibility and unique appearance to refurbishments where Stone-Coat really comes into its own, notably for its ability to mirror the original fittings.
