The weight of the full bed stone veneer is supported by the courses of veneer below, generally up to 25’ maximum height.

Thin Stone Veneer

Flexible Design Options With Adhered Masonry Veneer

AMV systems are an attractive and reliable alternative for traditional mass masonry or veneer cavity walls.

Adhered masonry veneer (AMV) systems are an attractive and reliable alternative for masonry walls in commercial and institutional facades. They provide a cost-effective solution using Polycor thin stone veneer secured directly to the wall substrate through mortar adhesion.

Natural thin stone veneer offers a flexible design option allowing commercial property owners to keep the natural stone in the facade, even when budgets or design considerations don’t allow the use of full-sized masonry units. Aesthetically, Polycor adhered stone veneer has the appearance of a traditional mass masonry wall or veneer cavity wall, but the anchorage of the cladding relies solely on the mortar adhesion.
