Neolith Exteriors: More than a Facade

Neolith Exteriors: More than a Facade

January 07, 2014

Façade: [fuh-sahd] (n) a superficial appearance or illusion of something.

Of course, that’s just one of the words’ definitions. There’s nothing superficial or illusionary about it. Neolith, the largest ultra compact surface on the market, is an ideal choice for architectural exteriors. In addition to making great countertops, vanities, flooring, veneers, and more, Neolith out performs nearly every other façade material in both strength and functionality.

Neolith offers the most efficient solutions for even the most demanding architectural projects. Compared to other typical building materials, Neolith is extremely lightweight. This is due to the material’s exceptional thinness. It’s available as thin as 3-millimeters and as thick as 12-millimeters. The thin, light sheets can be easily moved and handled, cutting down on transportation and fabrications costs, and making it easier and cheaper to get from point A to point B.

And while its lightness reduces the structural load of the building, make no mistake. It has a high shear rate, which means it can handle very heavy loads and pressure. Its “super hero” strength, minimal weight, and high efficiency make Neolith one of the most innovative products ever available in the cladding industry.

In addition to extreme thinness, Neolith is also available in very large slabs, making it exceedingly easy to cover large stretches of surfacing without seams or joints. Neolith comes in slabs up to 144-inches x 48-inches.

Recent laboratory testing has proven that Neolith’s physical properties make it a more efficient material than typical cladding materials such as glass, steel, and natural stone. It’s easily among today’s top choices for exteriors. In addition to its lightness and large size, Neolith is resistant to extreme weather conditions, UV rays, heat, water, chemicals, and abrasion. Not only will Neolith not burn if it comes into contact with fire, but it also won’t emit smoke or toxic fumes.
