WYOMISSING, Pa., May 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Glen-Gery, a recognized leader in hard surface solutions, unveiled a new product line, StoneFit with DryFit Technology® today. StoneFit with DryFit Technology is an innovative stone cladding solution with patented tongue and groove panels that interlock the stone pieces together without the use of mortar.
The panels are mechanically secured with attachment brackets that can be drilled directly into structural sheathing, regardless of stud location. The attachment brackets assist in creating a water management system and result in a high wind load resistance. The unique tongue and groove system is dual-purpose, it interlocks panels together and eliminates wall vibration.
The panels are part of a larger wall system also announced today – the StoneFit Wall System®. It is the first complete stone drainage wall system that includes a custom engineered starter angle and Glen-Gery branded Weather-Resistive Barrier and Drainage Mat.
"StoneFit can be installed year-round, in half the time of conventional adhered veneer products, which reduces installation cost and opens up new channels for our distribution network," said Chuck Baer, Stone Product Manager, Glen-Gery. "We are really excited about the opportunity this product presents."
The stone product is currently available in two colors under the Tightstack profile: Maple Ridge, an earth tone brown to tan range, and Glacier Frost, a subtle blue to grey tone. Color coordinating starter angles and matching accessories are also available in two colors that complement the stone.
The product is backed by Glen-Gery's 50-year product warranty, which ensures product durability and color longevity.
