Lightweight Honeycomb Stone Panels

Trimstone, specializes in lightweight natural stone panels and has been innovating in this field since 1984. The company, having transitioned from being both a manufacturer and a fabricator to focusing exclusively on manufacturing, possesses deep expertise in creating high-quality panels. They serve a diverse client base across North America, Europe, the Caribbean, and Latin America, catering to projects designed by some of the nation’s most prestigious architects. Their commitment to excellence is evident in their collaborations with top global stone suppliers and their streamlined production processes, ensuring they meet stringent construction timelines effectively.

Why Trimstone?

Choosing the right cladding material is crucial for architects, developers, engineers, and facade consultants. Lightweight natural stone panels, particularly Trimstone by Shape, are an attractive choice due to their technical attributes, design versatility, cost-efficiency, logistical advantages, and overall performance. These panels are easy to install, thanks to a patented cladding system that speeds up installation significantly compared to traditional stone. Weighing approximately 80% less than standard slab materials, Trimstone® panels enhance durability, sustainability, energy efficiency, and aesthetics in applications like curtain walls and window walls. Stoneworks, Inc. is committed to advancing the production of this modern stone panel, positioning it as a leading solution in architectural cladding for the 21st century.

Stone Types

Select virtually any kind of stone for your project.

Natural stone boasts a rich history as a key architectural feature. Like their predecessors, contemporary architects and developers regard natural stone as a preferred material due to its enduring quality, flexibility, and aesthetic charm, which remain timeless.

Trimstone® panels generally consist of granite, limestone, marble, or travertine, although they are not confined to these types of stones. It is crucial to recognize that each material possesses distinct qualities that should be aligned with the specific conditions of a client's individual project. Depending on the final choice of material, panels can measure up to 60” x 120”.

Granite:  is a type of igneous rock, is characterized by its distinct, visible grains. This rock forms as magma cools and crystallizes slowly deep under the Earth's surface. Primarily made up of quartz and feldspar, it also contains minor quantities of mica and various other minerals. These components are responsible for the typical red, pink, gray, and white hues associated with granite.

Marble: is a metamorphic rock that develops when limestone undergoes heat and pressure, primarily consisting of calcite (CaCO3). It often includes additional materials like clay minerals, micas, quartz, pyrite, iron oxides, and graphite. Under these metamorphic conditions, the calcite in the limestone recrystallizes, forming a rock composed of tightly interlocked calcite crystals, known as marble.

Limestone: is a sedimentary stone that is primarily composed of calcite. It typically forms in marine waters that are clear, calm, warm, and shallow. As a biological sedimentary rock, limestone results from the accumulation of shell, coral, and organic debris.

Travertine: is a dense, banded, and layered type of stone made up of calcium carbonate. It is a form of limestone that develops through the evaporation of river and spring waters. Typically, travertine appears in shades ranging from beige to brown and is characterized by its small, irregular holes and occasional dark, random graining.

Surface Finishes

Honed: Usually, a matte-finished surface that has lower reflectivity compared to the more frequently seen polished material.
Polished: A sleek, shiny, and reflective surface that amplifies the natural colors of the stone. The polishing process seals the pores of the material, reducing its ability to absorb water on the surface.
Sanded: A sanded surface presents a textured appearance with low reflectivity. It also gives the impression and feeling of the stone being very close to its natural state.
Brushed: Brushing produces a textured finish on stone that offers a visually appealing, weathered, and aged appearance. This effect can make the stone appear more natural and organic.
