Boral heralds new Cultured Stone age
Newly added to the Boral range of products, Cultured Stone® cladding offers a high quality, affordable alternative to natural stone. Cleverly engineered to look like traditional stone, the manufactured stone cladding product has a number of benefits that technology can provide.
Boral Clay and Concrete Products National Marketing Manager David Francis said: “As a manufactured material, Cultured Stone is light in weight, low post installation maintenance and has 54 per cent recycled content, making it versatile and practical for many commercial and residential projects.
“Around for almost 50 years in the US market, Cultured Stone allows builders and architects to offer a point of difference to those customers wanting to add definition and differentiation to building designs.
Mr Francis added: “People want to be in touch with nature. There is an emerging trend in the use of natural-looking materials, especially the look and feel of natural stone.”
Cultured Stone cladding is also well suited to composite architectural designs, complementing materials such as brick, timber and glass, and helping to create design features with dramatic visual appeal. Designed to be used for exterior and interior areas, Cultured Stone’s versatility extends to stone walls, stone fireplaces, stone water features and wine cellars as well as landscaping design elements where a stacked stone feature is desired.
Cultured Stone is available in nine distinct ranges and a wide variety of stone shapes, colours and textures. Each unit of Cultured Stone is cast in natural stone moulds before it is meticulously hand coloured to achieve the look and feel of stone.
Cultured Stone cladding is virtually maintenance free, and in most applications does not require painting, coating or sealing after installation. Boral Cultured Stone is supplied with a limited 50-year warranty.
