Concrete products can be used both inside and outdoors. Their extreme durability and low cost make them the ideal choice for long term outdoor use. Integral color can be achieved by adding iron oxide pigments to the concrete during manufacturing. Aristone offers 16 standard concrete design mixes (colors).

All products are available in smooth (form) finish, 2 levels of sandblast, distressed (air hammered) Coral textured finish and our Ari-Stone ( Old World ) textured finish.

The obvious disadvantage of concrete is its weight (140+- Lbs per cubic foot). All products must be offloaded and moved to their final location by hand or by forklift. Structural concrete columns are typically set by crane.

Aristone's precast products should be treated as other concrete. Depending on your local climate conditions, sealers may be needed to prevent damage from freeze/thaw cycles. You should contact your local mason or concrete specialist to inquire as to what type of sealer to use.

Design mixes and compressive strength test results are available upon request or on our website at: www.aristonedesigns.com

 

Plaster products are for interior use only. Aristone uses a high quality white casting plaster with a natural fabric back up for strength. Plaster product wall thickness is typically ¾" to 1". Plaster is ideal for painting or faux finishing.

Glass Fiber Reinforced concrete is a high strength, lightweight concrete product manufactured using sand, cement, alkali resistant fiber and an acrylic polymer curing agent.

The final product consists of a GFRC shell approximately ½" to 3/4" thick. The resulting product is as much as 75% lighter than a comparable concrete product.

GFRC is the ideal product for limited access areas where heavy structural columns and or other concrete products are not practical.

GFRC is available in any of our 16 colors in Smooth, Coral and Acid Etch finish. The product is excellent for painting or staining.

FRP (fiberglass reinforced polymer) - Aristone carries HB&G® PERMA Cast Columns. These are rotocast fiberglass reinforced polymer and they are suitable for both interior and exterior use. They are available in fluted, square, tapered, non-tapered styles in sizes ranging from 6" x 6' to 24" x 20'. Aristone stocks their Tuscan style non-fluted tapered columns in 6" 8" 10" and 12" diameter, in heights to 10 ft. Non-stock styles and sizes are available by special order and are typically available in 3 to 5 weeks.
