Sintered stone is conquering the world of architecture as it’s the ideal material for building façades considering its performance features and exclusive designs.

 

Why choose a sintered stone façade?

 

There are many materials that can be used to clad façades, but most require specific care to prevent their deterioration. Brick can sometimes cause moisture problems if not sealed properly, natural stone can become easily decoloured and soiled, metal panels can rust and wood is subject to putrefaction and decolouring. However, sintered stone is highly resistant and has near-zero porosity meaning it requires almost no maintenance and maintains its performance features over time.

 

The advantages of a sintered stone façade

 

If you’re looking for cutting-edge, high-performing materials, sintered stone is one of the best options as it offers unparalleled quality and immense versatility in designs.

 

01. Sintered stone offers guarantees and great durability

It’s extremely durable material meaning it’s ideal for use outdoors. Waterproof and resistant to the most extreme weather conditions, it guarantees thermal and acoustic insulation. It’s material comprised of fully natural raw materials, which means the colour never fades.
