The most advanced technology in stone finishes for exteriors & interiors

The UK Government has amended the Building Regulations to prohibit the use of combustible materials  in the external walls of buildings in England over 18 metres that contain at least one dwelling. This ban is the result of a review of fire safety, following the Grenfell tower tragedy. The Building (Amendment) Regulations 2018 states that building work shall be carried out so that material which  become part of an external wall are of European Classification “A2-s1, d0” or “A1”. These classifications are taken from BS EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009. Fire classification of construction products and building elements – Classification using test data from reaction to fire tests. The Building (Amendment) Regulations 2018, came into force on 21st December 2018 and will apply to all projects,  as described above, that started on site after 21st February 2019.
Stonescreen Aerolite© panels are non-combustible Classification Euroclass A1 rating under BS EN 13501-1.

Stonescreen Aerolite©

Light weight stone faced composite panel technology has been established for over 40 years originally for its benefits in high rise construction. Its advantages over traditional solid stone being are high weight to strength ratio. Stone composite panels were originally developed using aluminium honeycomb as its core or backing material. The latest innovation from Stonescreen is their Stonescreen Aerolite© product which uses a specially developed backing PIRACELL© as its core or backing material which has considerably superior technical properties and advantages.
Stonescreen Aerolite© superseded Stonescreen Lite© our high performance cladding product.

Stonescreen Lite©

Stonescreen Lite© is our original light weight stone cladding product. This architectural cladding panel is constructed using an aluminium honeycomb substrate and faced with a thin laminate of natural or artificial stone. Aluminium honeycomb was original developed for use in the aerospace industry for its combination of strength, durability and low weight. The imbalance between stone and honeycomb causes bowing in large format and flat panels. Due to technical limitations of this product we mainly recommend for internal use or external use under certain limited design conditions.

Stonescreen Curtain Wall

Stonescreen is a complete high performance external wall system specially designed to be faced with natural stone or other cladding materials and can incorporate standard or bespoke windows, doors, shades, louvres etc. The system is a double skin wall construction comprising of a weather and air tight backing wall which is faced with a rainscreen cladding. It is fully drained, thermally broken, back ventilated and has excellent thermal and acoustic properties. Stonescreen combines the benefits and elegance of natural stone within a high performance curtain wall system.
