Oldcastle APG integrates drainage function in stone veneer panels

Atlanta-based Oldcastle APG has unveiled the Beonstone collection of attached veneers as a system of versatile, durable and easy-to-install panels available in four popular natural stone aesthetics and six colors. Delivering the same thickness and rich look of natural stone, the producer notes, the collection is an easy, cost-effective way to achieve a high-end stone finish.

“These trendy European stone veneer panels are synonymous with elegance and comfort,” says Oldcastle APG Brand Manager Dave Jackson. “Designed to blend seamlessly with most current materials, the Beonstone collection ensures truly spectacular results for both interior and outdoor applications.”

Thanks to their integrated D.RAIN drainage system, he adds, the interlocking panels can be installed directly onto the standard framed walls of virtually any building and deliver bulletproof moisture management. Lighter and easier to cut, handle and install than traditional stone veneer, Beonstone panels are simply set and screwed in place to provide a fresh new look over any wall structure in just a few hours—eliminating the cost and specialized labor required for mortar and grout application.

The distinctive, warm appeal of the natural stone panels is available for a fraction of the cost of other wall systems and in a selection of styles ranging from classic hand-cut and rough-hewn block to contemporary stacked stone, Beonstone designers note. Coordinating trim stone, sills and outlet plates are available to seamlessly complete a residential or commercial building exterior. www.beonstone.com
