Arriscraft, manufacturer of naturally-made products that emulate quarried stone, has introduced an incredibly exciting thin natural limestone product – Adair® Clip. Arriscraft is the stone products group of General Shale, the North American subsidiary of Wienerberger AG and a leading manufacturer of brick, one of the world’s oldest green building materials.

“Adair® Clip is unlike any other stone cladding on the market. We’ve essentially designed very large sheets, or panels, of limestone that clip into a channel system for an outstanding aesthetic,” says Craig Swirzon, Thin-Clad Product Manager. “Not only does Adair® Clip offer a completely unique look – with panels up to six feet long – it’s also natural limestone which means its performance and durability is unmatched by concrete-based manufactured stone.”

At 1-1/4″ thickness, Adair® Clip is designed for installation using the Gridworx® channel system, which Arriscraft has successfully used for its thin ARRIS.clip calcium silicate stone product for many years. Three heights – 11-3/4″, 15-3/4″, 23-3/4″ – are available in lengths of
47-3/4″ and 71-3/4″ making this finished installation absolutely unique. Customers can choose from Blue-Grey or Sepia tones, in Fleuri or Veined patterns.

Arriscraft’s Adair® Limestone is a natural, quarried stone harvested in the Georgian Bay region of Ontario. Since the 1960s, the quarry has offered Blue-Grey and Sepia tones. In addition to Parliament, Arriscraft produces Adair® Masonry Units, Anchored Dimension Stone, Landscaping Stone, Thin Adair® and Tile.

Arriscraft manufactures a vast range of premium stone for commercial and residential projects, including full-bed Renaissance® Masonry Units and Building Stone, Thin-Clad adhered and clipped veneers, Adair® Limestone, and cast accessories. Designers can select from a truly comprehensive line of styles – from old-world to contemporary – in natural colors, with custom applications available.

Headquartered in Cambridge, Ontario (62 miles/100 km west of Toronto), Arriscraft is the stone products group of General Shale, North America’s largest brick, stone and concrete block manufacturer, supplying a wide variety of masonry materials for residential, commercial and specialty architectural projects.

Throughout the U.S. and Canada, General Shale operates manufacturing facilities in nine states and provinces, in addition to a network of 31 distribution centers across the United States.
