The fireplace, in both traditional and modern contemporary homes, is a design feature that can easily add the wow factor to your home. Modern materials and installation techniques allow for rapid, cost effective fireplace designs that can look spectacular yet cost a fraction of hand-carved, solid stone mantles. Fireplace surrounds and chimney breasts are among the most popular uses of Norstone stone cladding panels. The standout, raw beauty of the stone is ideal for creating a wonderful talking point and the low maintenance, durability and strength of the cladding means is perfectly suited to the task.
Unlike some fake or artificial fireplaces, a natural stone clad fireplace looks and acts like the real deal. You can install stone cladding panels around traditional chimney, contemporary free-standing and wood burning fireplaces. Norstone stone cladding tiles and panels can be used for wall cladding in extreme climates, such as 40 to 50 degrees Celsius, such as that found in a fireplace veneer, however, the stone cladding must be installed on the outward facing areas of a fireplace, and never exposed to a direct flame.
One key feature that makes Norstone’s stone cladding system so brilliant for fireplace installation is our unique, finger locking corner system – this allows you to create perfectly finished, tidy and seamless corners with minimal fuss – most other retailers cannot provide a corner solution.
