Lightweight Stone Façade Details
Reducing the overall weight of a structure while maintaining its durability, sustainability, and aesthetics is a challenge.
A challenge that Tuscan Stoneworx took on and conquered with its lightweight stone façade details!
The combination of the highly experienced Tuscan Stoneworx Canada European management team, combined with the support from the Tuscan US team and its in-house Canadian Design team, means there is enough creative horsepower and experience to create solutions for any commercial or residential project.
Examples of typical engineered designs and details of the majority of our limestone cast stone façade products are shown below. However, note that we regularly work with clients, designers, architects, and engineers to develop custom profiles and solutions:
Light core is the new hardcore
A typical design consists of a half-inch of cast material exterior, with an EPS core. The half-inch cast exterior is sufficient to provide a highly durable exterior surface, designed to last the test of time. The EPS core increases the product’s insulative properties and means that no additional costs are incurred in the design stages.
The cost savings continue due to the speed of installation. The majority of installations are completed using a standard masonry brick mortar or PL adhesive versus expensive and slow to install mechanical fixings.
