Traditionally architectural profiles are carved from stone or cast from reconstituted stone or other materials. For obvious reasons this can work out to be extremely expensive.
Being ever increasingly specified by architects and designers, we are able to offer the supply and installation of polystyrene architectural profiles/ decorative features as part of our external rendering service.
These are manufactured using state of the art CAM cutters and coated with products similar to those explained in ‘Thin Coat Acrylic & Silicone Renders’. They can even be sprayed with a textured, coloured product which looks incredibly similar to real sand stone.
The profiles are incredibly lightweight compared to stone and the coating is extremely hard meaning these profiles are ideal for use on timber frame/SIPs render-receiver board systems which would never have been possible with cast or stone profiles.
Coated polystyrene profiles can be used on any other type of construction and are particularly useful on projects where installing traditional mouldings would prove to be problematic, any moulding can be replicated and when accompanied with a C.A.D drawing any bespoke profile can be made to suit your particular project.
If you need a company to professionally source and install stone effect polystyrene profiles please contact us.
