Muros Schist Stone Style Panels
Description

Muros Schist Stone panels are constructed from a durable fibreglass-base, to authentically recreate the classic look and feel of a textured 'flat-layered' stone wall without the weight or expense. The European panels are suitable for walls and ceilings, counters and columns. Designed for interior use, and exterior applications in residential and inspired workspace, hospitality and retail settings. Joints are made to look seamless with installation materials provided so the stone veneer panels look to 'wrap around' corners and angles.

Akin to what can be seen within contemporary establishments in Queenstown, the elegant design replicates the long thin irregular-shaped stones used often by stonemasons in the Otago region. The natural inherent beauty of Otago schist makes it the design of choice for leading architects, designers and discerning house builders aiming to create eye-catching homes and properties with a stone look. As a result the Muros Schist Stone has been extremely popular over the past few years as more opt for a modern yet natural stone feel without the hassle and labour of craft masons.  With a particulary low relief, it is also a space saving design which still exudes the depth and character of real schist stone.

Alongside Muros Strata Stone, Muros Schist Stone is another favoured option in the Muros Stone veneer range and available in the warmer tones — Anthracite, Grey, Natural and Brown — and also in pure Black and White colours. Versatile in a range of commercial applications, it also has strong demand in the residential sector — popular for feature walls, fireplace surrounds and garden/outdoor fencing and walls — as a time and cost saving alternative to real masonry schist stone.

Constructed from a fibreglass compound, combined with natural mineral pigments, panels are available in a range of colours, and also easily painted. Plaster, sign writing and other creative finishes offer further versatility and distinction.
