Norstone stone cladding ranges incorporate both contemporary and also rustic, catering for all tastes and styles within the market. Our stone cladding systems also offer incredible versatility, from sleek, geometric tiles such as Aksent™ and Planc™, to modular, large-scale format formats including XLX Rock Panel™ and Rustik™. With such a diverse range, it’s critical to have a thorough and well-understood methodology for both installation and aftercare.
Our many years as leading UK stone cladding suppliers means we have developed an extensive, highly effective technical application guide based on real-world feedback from our commercial partners and our approved materials distributors. It is really important, whether it is on a commercial scale or a small private dwelling, that your project is protected by reputable, long-standing warranties and guarantees – Norstone have partnerships with our preferred suppliers, Laticrete International and Knauf.
When installed to the technical specifications and using the correct substrates, the combined Knauf / Laticrete warranty is good for a staggering 25 years! Because of these warranties, many of the UK’s leading architects and interior designers work closely with Norstone before choosing a stone cladding range suitable for their project.
Design projects that feature stone cladding surfaces can differ greatly, due to technical considerations such as proximity to the sea, cliff top locations, etc. Certain weight restrictions may mean timber or steel frames are required, this often requires working closely with our partners to develop a suitable system warranty that satisfies the most discerning architect, but more importantly, you.
We will not only sell you lifestyle choices, but more importantly, our natural stone cladding ranges are backed by warranties which will stand the test of time. Remember, stone cladding and warranties go hand in hand at Norstone.

Our new Aksent™ range - uncompromisingly contemporary.
We’ve responded to demand to broaden our 3D Basalt range with new colours and materials - our grey and ebony basalt 3D XLX wall tiles have been augmented by quartz, lava stone and marble stone cladding tiles in beige, white and grey.
Our grey and ebony classics have proved very popular with architects and builders alike, and the success and demand for a wider colour range inspired us to create the new Aksent™ range. Every colour has the same Norstone characteristics of precision engineered modular natural stone panels of the highest quality allied with our unique interlocking fingerjointed corners allowing for supreme ease of installation and a seamless finish. Like all Norstone stone cladding products, the Aksent™ range comes with a unique warranty if correctly affixed using Laticrete MVIS products.
These modern wall tiles are perfect for contemporary commercial and residential use and are suitable for both interior and exterior use. Our original best-selling grey and ebony in basalt are still available and the full range includes a beautiful beige Latte in smooth as silk marble, a classic ice white Glacier marble, lava stone tiles in Platinum and a slightly darker Graphite grey, and a quartz tile in Silver Grey.
Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further details. 150mm x 150mm samples and full size panels are available to order from our website and are delivered via FedEx 24 hour courier service. Orders received before noon are usually delivered the next working day.
Large-scale modular natural stone cladding
After our bespoke lava stone installation in the USA received rave reviews, we decided to develop a new product utilising lava stone and also using this large-scale format to include the ever popular basalt and quartzite materials used in Norstone’s other stone cladding ranges.
A minor departure from our renowned modular panels, the large format Planc™ still posseses all the benefits associated wiith Norstone’s product range - rapid, seamless installation of the highest quality, precision-cut natural stone with the warranty options Norstone has become famous for.
Packaged in sets of three (800 x 60/80/140mm), this versatile product can be laid however you prefer - staggered, symmetrical, asymmetrical or even whichever random design you decide upon. Be creative! We can also accommodate bespoke sizes from 150-1000mm wide to 1500mm long - please email us for more details.
The style is uncompromisingly modern and the range encompasses a silver grey quartzite to an ebony basalt. Surfaces range from naturally pitted lava stone to silky smooth basalt with degrees of honed finishes inbetween. Whether monochrome or a blend of several colours and finishes, our Planc™ range produces stunning results.

Commercial project marries two colours and finishes to stunning effect at West Midlands shopping centre
cNorstone prides itself that it supplies stone cladding products to both retail and commercial clients alike. One of our most recent projects shown in these pictures is for a large supermarket complex that had a combination of both Ochre XLS and our new Aksent Ebony natural stone cladding.
We are delighted with the results; Ochre XLS and Aksent Ebony cladding panel systems have been paired in striking fashion to provide a beautiful façade for this busy commercial shopping Centre.
The project, like most our larger projects, was specified by architects who obviously saw that this beautiful combination of the two stone cladding products would work.
The corner detail of Norstone’s cladding products was an important feature given the large number of external corners that can be seen on these columns extending skyways.
Positioned in the West Midlands in Brierley Hill, the finished façade is there for everyone to see - this combination may work for you too!.
XLS Charcoal Stone Cladding | Instinct Laboratory
Norstone's stunning Charcoal XLS stone cladding system has recently been used to great effect at Instinct House, the home of design consultancy firm Instinct Laboratory. Check out the gallery showcasing the striking building and the superb juxtaposition of natural stone cladding and futuristic panelling.
George from Instinct Laboratory comments:
"instinct laboratory is a world leading behavioural design consultancy. With clients ranging from global brands to governments to medical centres to elite performance sports teams, we need an extraordinary place to work that reflects our research and thinking.
We wanted to create an environment that inspires, energises and promotes effectiveness. Craftsmanship and quality were a priority throughout the build and this is why we chose Norstone for the striking exterior. With the entire place built on feelings and emotions, Norstone Charcoal XLS was chosen specifically to reflect the ever-changing experience of our business."
Visit their website to see and find out more about Instinct Laboratory.
Although we are famous for the modern look our natural stone cladding panels provide, we have responded to numerous requests to introduce a traditional rustic product to our catalogue. The ever-popular Ochre and Charcoal colours are supplemented by the stunning tones of our new Aztec (also available in our classic rock panel format).
We have maintained the modular panel system used throughout our product range to combine timeless old-fashioned style with contemporary installation methods. Rustik™ features our trademark interlocking panels and the unique design hides the straight lines caused by concrete back panels. Mesh-mounted stone makes the panels lighter and allows adhesive to be applied directly to the stone.
As part of the launch of this exciting new product, we are offering a 30% discount if we can photograph your completed project. Suitable for all the usual cladding uses and particularly suited to hard landscaping, barn conversions, fireplaces, cottages and any project that requires that extra level of authenticity.
Please phone or email us for more details. Visit the Rustik page - Norstone Rustik™

One recent client was so delighted with the results of Norstone he sent us some before and after shots to share.
Thank you for the images and your generous testimonial, Tony!
"I am absolutely delighted with the Norstone stone cladding. I was really concerned that the stone would look unreal and that it would be really obvious that is was cladding. However, it looks fantastic, I'm delighted with it and it has far exceeded my expectations of how good and authentic it looks. One of the reasons I selected Norstone was because they could provide corner stone sections which interlink to form a natural corner edge. Norstone was the only supplier I could find that takes this approach and the result makes all the difference. I selected the ochre stone which looks amazing especially when lit.
I would also like to highlight the great service received from Norstone. I initially made an enquiry via the web and selected a sample set of stone, which duly arrived within 2 days, in a professional looking box and brochure. I then had a number of conversations with them to make sure I understood how the stone panels worked, the corners, cutting, sizing etc etc. At all times they were very helpful and everything they told me about the product, its use and how it would look, has been proved 100% correct. I have no hesitation in recommending Norstone."
