Arizona Faux Beams uses state-of-the-art polyurethane chemistry to create our simulated faux stone and faux brick panels. We combine UV stabilizers, scratch resistant agents and additives to enhance the texture and feel of the stone and brick veneer surface. The panels are CFC free and won'ï¿½ï¿½t crack, split or mold/mildew. They are water and termite resistant as well. This technology allows us to produce an incredibly strong lightweight product that is easy to install and less expensive to ship. Our faux stone and faux brick panels resist blunt trauma such as baseball bats, bicycles, lawnmower wheels, and a child's errant throw. In addition to their strength and the visual appeal they have insulation properties (R-Value) unachievable with traditional siding or masonry. Our faux stone and faux brick panels are so lightweight less that 1 pound per square foot, and because each simulated panel covers several square feet, the overall cost and ease of installation is much less than that of traditional masonry products. In fact, labor savings on faux stone panel installation often exceeds the actual cost of the product.
