lightweight masonry products
Masonry is one of the oldest construction materials in the world.
Masonry is one of the most durable and beautiful construction material products in the world. It forms an integral part of the design, engineering, and architecture of historic buildings worldwide.
All Tuscan Stoneworx Masonry products are cast and manufactured utilizing crushed limestone as a part of the mix design. One of the key benefits of working with masonry products is its durability.
Durability in traditional construction materials comes at a price, and that price is weight. Traditional masonry products are solid or full-cast, and they are heavy. Resulting in additional engineering, mechanical fixings, and reinforcement being incorporated into the design, which comes at a cost.
Ultimately if a masonry product is incorporated in a design for aesthetic purposes, there is no need for it to be full-cast. The ‘wear’ depth on the material’s surface will never be more than several millimeters over its lifetime.
This realization, combined with CNC Machine Technology and EPS products’ advancements, resulted in Tuscan Stoneworx Lightweight Masonry Products evolution.
Limestone cast mix poured in conjunction with EPS foam forms the perfect blend of lightweight strength and durability. With a minimum of half an inch of cast limestone material, supported by EPS foam results in a product that can be up to 70% lighter than its full cast counterparts.
This significant weight reduction reduces the product’s overall sale price, engineering costs, installation, and transportation costs of the product.
The final cherry on top comes from CNC technology, which can machine EPS into an unlimited amount of shapes and profiles—giving lightweight masonry products a massive advantage over traditional full cast alternatives.
