Arriscraft, manufacturer of naturally-made products that emulate quarried stone, announced today a new Sawn finish available in its Thin Building Stone products, including Coastal, Midtown and Stack. 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.
“We’re very excited to offer the new Sawn finish, which is a smoother, sleeker alternative to our traditional split-face finish,” says Marta Zonneveld, Marketing Manager. “Demand for our thin-clad products continues to grow throughout North America and this new finish is an inspiring option for modern residential and commercial designs that favor straight lines.”
The Sawn finish is currently available on Arriscraft’s Georgia thin building stone products (all of which are also available in Canada). This unique finish will enhance the clean aesthetic of a coursed installation, available for Midtown thin stone, in which one stone size is laid continuously for a contemporary look. And, this simplified finish will transform the traditional ledgestone look of Stack (ashlar pattern) and Coastal Series (ashlar pattern with a mortar joint). All Arriscraft thin building stone products are well-suited for interior applications as well, and the Sawn finish is perfect for modern spaces – both residential and commercial.
Thin Building Stone Sizes and Colors:
Coastal Series – 2-1/8″, 3-5/8″ and 6-1/8″ face rises; lengths 4″ – 23-5/8″, five standard colors.

Arriscraft’s Natural Process technology uses only natural materials (plus color pigments) and replicates how stone is created in the earth. This proprietary process creates stone with the natural aesthetics and durability of quarried stone, plus the convenience of standard installation and unlimited supply.
