FunderMax launched a new exterior textured surface “SKY” with stone finishes. Available in two sizes, i.e., 4100x1300mm in 6mm and 8mm thickness, and a variety of traditional and contemporary shades, it could be an alternative to stone, ceramic and metal facades.
The product enables designers and architects to effectively re-create stone and concrete like facades. This is suitable wherever stone cladding is preferred but couldn’t be considered due to constraints like high structural load and other risks associated with stones like high porosity, stain marks, etc. Also, some stones are soft, brittle and very susceptible to chipping,
developing cracks and breaking. The stone cladding is time consuming and labor intensive process which requires regular maintenance over the years and has to be polished periodically.
Dr. Prashanth Reddy, Managing Director FunderMax India says that the product is designed ‘for people who create’, as it will allow professionals to achieve the very best in terms of visual depth and texture. As the surface design doesn’t have a grain, architects no longer need to worry about the direction of the cut during installation.
