BLOOMINGTON, IN - An innovative, versatile line of thin limestone construction panels from Indiana Limestone Companyis detailed in a new website, lightlimestone.com. The site provides ample information on the company's natural stone panels, highlighting their light weight, great strength and modular versatility.
Bonding a veneer of this distinctive limestone to an advanced, high-strength honeycomb backing, the thin limestone panel system expands and enhances the possibilities for using premier Indiana Limestone in architecture and construction.
The website explains that Indiana Limestone Company's panels are 80 percent lighter than solid stone slabs of the same width and length. This difference can enable great savings in structural requirements, labor, shipping and construction-site equipment. The panels have 60 times the impact resistance of solid slabs they're produced from. They deliver enhanced flexural strength and weather extreme freeze-thaw cycles well.
According to the website, modular construction is another advantage the panels provide. Available in standard-sized units, the panels don't require a complex layout, and install easily, providing an economical means for making the Indiana Limestone look a reality.
Also available from the site are helpful documents for architects, building designers, contractors and builders: three-part specifications, CAD details and BIM objects.
