STONEPANEL covers the exterior walls of The Café at Abakhan, located at Mostyn (Flintshire, North Wales) in UK. The pre-mounted stone panels used for cladding this store were STONEPANEL™ SAHARA, a multicolor quartzite with brown and grey tones. Sober and rustic, stone panels transmit great warmth and strength.
STONEPANEL™ is a unique system, created and patented by CUPA, that can be used for any type of exterior or interior natural stone wall cladding application. The contractors of this project assisted in the supply of STONEPANEL™ because it is a BBA certified product, recognised by building control, government departments, architects, local authorities, specifiers, and industry insurers like the NHBC. You can see how to install the natural stone panels on our YouTube channel:
