A versatile line of thin limestone construction panels from Indiana Limestone Co. is detailed in a new website, lightlimestone.com. The site provides information on its natural stone panels, highlighting light weight, strength, and modular versatility.
Bonding a veneer of this limestone to a honeycomb backing, the thin limestone panel system expands and enhances the possibilities for using Indiana Limestone in architecture and construction.
The website explains that Indiana Limestone Co. panels are 80 percent lighter than solid stone slabs of the same width and length. This difference can enable savings in structural requirements, labor, shipping, and construction-site equipment. The panels have 60 times the impact resistance of solid slabs they’re produced from. They deliver flexural strength and weather extreme freeze-thaw cycles well.
According to the website, modular construction is another advantage the panels provide. Available in standard-sized units, the panels don’t require a complex layout, and install with ease, providing a means for making the Indiana Limestone look a reality.
Also available from the site are documents for architects, building designers, contractors and builders: three-part specifications, CAD details, and BIM objects.
