Trimstone® is a state-of-the-art lightweight stone paneling system, comprised of natural stone veneer securely bonded to high-strength, aviation-grade aluminum honeycomb panels. The smart alternative to solid dimensional stone panels. Trimstone® allows clients to enjoy the beauty of natural stone without the weight, thickness, fragility, and installation challenges that arise when stone materials are used as architectural elements.
The Trimstone Advantage begins with our Trimstone® panels that weigh approximately 2.5 lbs per square foot, approximately 80 percent less than standard 3/4″ slab material.
Aluminum Honeycomb Core Panels
Trimstone® makes use of Plascore’s advanced aluminum honeycomb core: a material offering unparalleled strength-to-weight ratios and resistance to heat, moisture, corrosion, and mold. Panels can be ordered in a variety of thickness to suit your project’s needs and can have a fiberglass or aluminum skin.
Ease of Installation
Trimstone® panels are remarkably easy to handle and install. Our patented cladding system further simplifies the installation process, allowing for Trimstone® to be installed at nearly three times the rate of dimensional stone.
Strength No Matter the Thickness
Trimstone® has superior energy absorption and impact resistance. Panels exhibit flexural strength and warpage thresholds that are significantly greater than what is normally seen in 4 cm granite slabs. The versatile stone panels can have profiles as thin as 3/8″, making them a perfect fit for applications with thickness restrictions.
All Trimstone® panels have a durable epoxy skin which protects the honeycomb core with a waterproof barrier.
Trimstone® panels were given higher grades on all ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) tests conducted under freeze and thaw cycles than our competition (official test results are available for comparison).
Clients can order cut-to-size panels based on the dimensional specifics of their application. Individual panels can be as large as 60″ X 120″.
Also, Trimstone® is manufactured in the United States, so we are able to bring efficient production timetables to even the most demanding construction schedules.
