Thin sandstone veneer cladding from StonePly.
Sandstone faced StonePly veneer cladding is composed of an aluminum honeycomb base with a sandstone veneer permanently bonded to the face. Sandstone is a sedimentary stone, made up primarily of sand sized grains of minerals. The most common minerals in sandstone are quartz and feldspar. Sandstone veneer cladding panels are available in almost any color, the most common being red, brown, yellow, tan, pink, gray and white.
StonePly sandstone veneer cladding panels are generally used in a smooth sawn or honed finish. Sandstone is not available in a polished surface. Sandstone in a honed finish provides a smooth, non-reflective surface. Rougher surfaces are available with bush hammered or sandblasted sandstone.
