AirStone: New Stone Veneer Products Provide A Simple, Green Alternative


Easy for the DIY market; professionally designed for contractors or builders

(Louisville, Kentucky) – The look and feel of stone wall covering in a
residential or commercial setting is always an attractive aspect of a
building, but adding a stone look is typically a professional undertaking
which involves specialized equipment, installers and struggles with
structural issues…until now. AirStone is an ultra-light wall covering system
from Baton, LLC. that allows anyone to install a beautiful stone veneer
using only pre-mixed adhesive, a putty knife and a hack saw.  AirStones are
individual stone pieces that precisely fit together so grouting is not
required. They adhere directly onto any wall or fireplace in homes or
commercial buildings.

The AirStone product line is the only stone veneer light enough to attach
directly to a wall. The product has the look and feel of real stone, yet is
much lighter and extremely durable.  AirStones are comprised of a
proprietary formula which makes them 75% lighter than real stone and 50%
lighter than manufactured concrete stone. They are the only green,
eco-friendly artificial stone on the market -- 80% of the product is
recycled content.  The patent-pending process actually transforms recycled
synthetic particles into a lightweight hardened stone product.  As an added
bonus, the light weight nature of the product reduces packaging,
transportation and structural excesses.

AirStone transforms a complicated construction ordeal into a simple wall
covering project.  Professional or DIYers can install AirStone by simply
applying pre-mixed adhesive to the pieces and pressing them to a wall.
Because high installation and materials costs are eliminated, the AirStone
project is very affordable. Total project costs can drop by up to 80%.
AirStone cuts simply with a hacksaw and is easily drilled through, so
hanging art or installing shelves is not a problem. AirStone can be used for
interiors and exteriors and is appropriate for residential or commercial

The AirStone product line comes in an attractive grey tinted Spring Creek
color as well as a brown tinted Autumn Mountain color. The product line
costs around $7 per square foot and is available at many Lowe’s stores
nationally. For more information or where to buy go to:
