A Full Range of Standard and Bespoke Surfaces

  • Render

    render_02_01

    Render or Stucco offers almost infinite design possibilities in terms of texture, colour, sheen, applied additives and bespoke techniques. There are two types of render finishes:

    Traditional
    Mineral render (sand-cement-lime) renders can provide a facade's surface with a heterogeneous character but are recommended to be overcoated, due in part to the risk of efflorescence and also in order achieve consistency and more intense, bright colours.

    Innovative
    Sto is best known for being a pioneer in the development of synthetic cement-free renders, which are pre-mixed, through coloured, flexible and offering a consistent colour tone as well as ensuring that minor knocks and chips are not obvious.

    The materials are available with Acrylic, Silicone or Silicate binders as well as with a range of intelligent technology attributes.

  • Customised Render Surfaces

    signature_01_01

    Textures + Effects = Endless Possibilities
    StoSignature allows you to put unique surfaces into effect via a logical and systematic approach to application. Available for facades and for specific acoustic surfaces.

    A systematic approach
    The methodology behind StoSignature is simple.- Start with a texture, either a single product or combination of products, tools or techniques, choose either a colour within the material or as a coating to provide either a sheen or glaze appearance, and finally add a variety of effect particles into the moist finish.

  • Verolith

    Our 3D facade elements and profiles are manufactured using StoVerolith, a perlite based material that can be used as either a monolithic board or hollow section profile.

    The monolithic, light-weight perlite-based material Verolith is available as standard architectural profiles or it may be cut using state of the art computer aided manufacturing processes.

  • Brick

    brick_02_01

    Our StoBrick portfolio includes a range of authentic clay brick slips created by the same processes used to create a traditional brick. These include slips cut from hand moulded or water struck bricks, but we also offer tiles created using an extrusion process.

    Additionally we also offer the ability to pre-manufacture either an impression of brick surfaces or free-form shapes using as a basis our own cement-free and extremely flexible render.

  • Acoustic

    acoustics_02

    Good acoustics need to be more than seen to be heard - as they have a similar appearance to standard surfaces and finishes. At our materials resource library in Clerkenwell there is the opportunity to experience our acoustic systems and finishes which are installed throughout.

    The acoustic properties increase not only the comfort level of a space, but they can also increase the productivity and wellbeing of the people that occupy them.

  • Intelligent Technology Finishes

    07310_lotusan

    Using nature and techniques of biomimicry, Sto scientists have developed a range of Intelligent Technology Finishes to provide tangible benefits to facade surfaces. Each technology when applied to the appropriate environmental demand placed on a building can support: Cleaner facades (StoColor Lotusan); breaking down NOx pollutants (StoColor Photosan); quick drying facades (StoColor Dryonic) and heat management on dark coloured facades (StoColor X-Black).

  • Choice of colour

    StoColor System
    StoColor System

    Our render, plaster and acoustic finishes are through-coloured meaning that the inevitable scratches chips and other minor damage caused by the day to day use of a building are not obvious.

    In order to give you the best possible representation compared to a flat colour card, we have 460 through-tinted samples available in our material library in Clerkenwell, London.

    Likewise, white is not always white and the luminance of a material is effected by its binders and raw materials so the Werkstatt makes it as convenient as possible to compare colours, textures and effects all in one place.
