FunderMax strengthens its expanding range of façade solution with an innovative new surface SKY
20 Apr 2017
A first-of-its-kind surface collection for the Indian market, which is developed to meet challenges of stone cladding.
FunderMax has launched a new exterior textured surface ‘SKY’ with stone finishes in 10 decors and two sizes ie, 4,100 x 1,300 mm in 6 mm and 8 mm thickness. SKY is an aesthetically striking new addition, which enables designers and architects to effectively re-create stone and concrete like facades.
This is suitable wherever stone cladding is preferred but could not be considered due to constraints like high structural load and other risks associated like stones are highly porous and absorb the stain marks very easily. Also, some stones are soft, brittle and very susceptible to chipping, developing cracks and breaking. The stone cladding is time consuming and labour intensive processes, which require regular maintenance over the years and have to be polished periodically.
Available in a variety of traditional and contemporary shades this unique alternative to stone, ceramic and metal facades is already proving highly popular.
Dr Prashanth Reddy, Managing Director FunderMax India, says, “We’re incredibly excited to be unveiling SKY surface for the Indian market. Designed ‘for people who create’, this unique and new exterior surface will allow professionals to achieve the very best in terms of visual depth and texture. And as the surface design doesn’t have a grain, architects no longer need to worry about the direction of the cut during installation.”
