Fruitlands Lightweight 40mm Veneer Schist Cladding

Updated: Oct 6, 2022

David Packman from Southern Stonemasons Canterbury Ltd, purchased direct from our Fruitlands Schist Stone Quarry in the heart of Central Otago, New Zealand our Lightweight 40mm Schist Veneer cladding for a project in Christchurch.

His client had purchased a new home but didn’t like the decorative block.  They used the Fruitlands Lightweight 40mm Veneer Cladding to hide the blocks.

Where restriction in weight and height prohibit the use of guillotine cut 180mm schist stone we can cut an individual stone to a lightweight 40mm schist veneer by using a diamond saw to cut the face of the stone.

We can cut “L” shaped corners and flats.

Our Lightweight Schist Veneer can be fitted to many substrates.  It can be installed either very closely or spaced out and filled with mortar.

The warmer tones look fantastic with the cedar timber - the end result looks outstanding!

Well done David Packman from Southern

Stonemasons Canterbury and your team of stonemasons.
