We know it’s hard to believe, just how did we manage to make real stone so thin, light and flexible? We took advantage of sedimentary rocks characteristics, we peel away layers of stone giving us thin sheets that are applied to a strong, flexible fiberglass backing. This is not a laminate that has the look of stone, this is real stone.
Slate can weigh between 8-10 pounds per square foot. Versa Rock 2’ X 4’ (8 square feet) sheets only weigh a couple pounds. You can now install 8 sq ft of stone with no additional help or handling equipment in a matter of seconds.
The most asked question regarding Versa Rock is durability, yes it’s beautiful but how will it hold up to extended use and weather? Versa Rock has been independently tested for foot traffic wear and passed with flying colors showing zero wear after 20,000 steps. Versa Rock has been used in showers and wall and flooring applications outdoors with no issue. Still concerned? Remember, Versa Rock comes with a life-time warranty when installed by a certified installer using Versa Glu.
Versa Rock is a stone veneer that can be applied to many different indoor and outdoor surfaces. It is light weight and flexible allowing it to be used in many applications including vertical and horizontal surfaces not previously considered for stone due to weight and or flaking issues.
Versa Rock is a natural stone veneer laminated to a fiberglass substrate.
Since it is a natural stone veneer, color and texture variances are not defects within the material, but are inherent to it and part of the natural beauty of quarried materials. Versa Rock cannot be guaranteed to match piece to piece, so it is recommended that orders take into account for future maintenance or repairs and replacement.
Versa Rock is perfect for wall applications, furniture, millwork, lighting, column cladding and numerous other interior and exterior applications.
The stone surface of Versa Rock, like most stone elements, acts as a UV inhibitor and will resist high sun conditions for years. When adhered to a substrate, Versa Rock will handle thermal contraction and or expansion of most standard construction materials. Versa Rock will handle both high temperatures and freezing without cracking.
Versa Rock can be bent in the same manner as plastic laminate products. The fiberglass strand used in the manufacture of Versa Rock gives it strength and flexibility. Versa Rock can be bent inward, or arched outward, depending on the desired need. Versa Rock can be bent or flexed to a radius of 18” along the 4’ length. The 2’ width will also have a slight flex to it, but is not recommended for bending. Due to the nature of the different thickness of the individual items, the degree of radius varies per item. We recommend testing the flex of the considered item prior to final installation.
The use of metal shears is recommended for cutting Versa Rock. However, standard carbide or diamond saw blades would work just as well.
Versa Rock can be applied to MDF, Foam board, melamine, concrete, brick, block, drwall, plywood, acrylic and other plastic sheeting.
