Light Stone photograph from BBS Brick & Stone Ltd

Stone-Coat is an innovative Light Stone which offers a range of architectural mouldings manufactured to almost any profile or shape.

As a unique stone-effect product that solves the weight issues of traditional cast-stone, Stone-Coat allows the designer complete flexibility.

It is made from high-density yet lightweight polystyrene which is then coated with unique layers of material that looks like stone, feels like stone, and yet is substantially lighter than stone. It is very cost-effective and can be used in almost any normal masonry-stone application. Stone-Coat particularly lends itself to large-section heavy components such as a cornice or copings.
