The exciting new Fast Track Stone masonry support system can transform a basic building into a structure of elegance and warmth, as well as economy. Unlike conventional stone-veneer finishes, Fast Track Stone does not require a concrete footing to support the weight of the masonry. This feature alone can yield considerable savings.
The system weighs as little as 14 pounds per square foot. It is easily designed into new projects using conventional construction techniques or attaches to most structures using existing wall studs.
Green Values: Fast Track Stone can help builders achieve LEED objectives. Aluminum channels and clips have at least 25% post-consumer recycled content, and the entire system can be dismantled and re-purposed as the building's uses change over its life cycle.
Premium Masonry Panels: Natural limestone panels are available from Texas Quarries in four standard varieties.
Lightweight cast-stone panels are available as well. Please ask your representative for a current list of masonry panels compatible with Fast Track Stone.
