Material and use

The Rockpanel Woods boards are produced from compressed natural basalt, a sustainable and readily available volcanic rock and bonded with an organic binder from which all Rockpanel products derive their unique properties. The products combine the advantages of stone and workability wood.

The cladding boards are suitable for use as exterior cladding, applications along the roofline and for building detailing.

Take no risks - be on the (fire-)safe side

Creating fire-safe buildings to protect the people living and working inside is an increasingly important issue. With Rockpanel FS-Xtra  we developed an exterior cladding board which meets the European fire class A2-s1, d0 (non-combustible according to national building regulations) when fixed on a metal sub-frame with rivets. Next to that we offer the Durable grade, which is classified as B-s2, d0. When using Rockpanel boards you can create façades with a high level of fire safety with a broad range of aesthetic finishes.

Add your personal signature

If you are looking for a truly unique façade with a personal touch, you have the option to engrave Rockpanel boards with your own creative design – corporate logos, text, graphic images – the only limit is your creativity! Designs can be made with a CNC router on a 10mm thick board (maximum engraving depth of 2mm). A further advantage of engraving on Rockpanel boards is that the engraved parts don’t need any additional protection.

Flexibility built in

Rockpanel boards can be curved and bent easily to create amazing facades.

All the benefits of wood but much longer lasting, like stone

Wood has been used for millennia to create beautiful buildings, but those with a wooden façade need regular maintenance and have a limited life before the costly expense of removal and renewal. Then stone came along, but it lacked the natural warmth that only wood could achieve. That is until Rockpanel Woods was invented. Through an innovative process the boards are almost perfect replicas of wood, with all of the long lasting benefits inherent in a stone façade. Simply put, the best of both worlds.
