Building Stone From Reclaimed Material
Product to watch
Arriscraft has released its Matterhorn product, a building stone manufactured almost entirely from reclaimed material.
Arriscraft’s Matterhorn Building Stone is made with 99 percent reclaimed material from existing manufacturing processes. While it doesn’t contribute to LEED certification as “recycled” (i.e. from an outside source), the product introduction reflects the company’s ongoing effort to reduce waste, energy usage and the impact of manufacturing.
The recycling process creates a darker base material than normal and, through additional pigmentation, Matterhorn is available in two colors: Blueridge and Saddle. Plus, the combination of Guillotined and Tumbled finishes produces a rustic look.
Arriscraft’s Natural Process technology uses only natural materials (plus color pigments) and replicates how stone is created in the earth. This patented process creates building stone with the natural aesthetics and durability of quarried stone, plus the convenience of standard installation and unlimited supply.
