Litestone Products

Ilam Stone Litestone Heads and cills closely match cast stone in texture and colour whilst being only one third the weight of its dry cast equivalent.

Most pieces are within manual lifting recommendations a 1405 dry cast cill weighs approximately 61kg whereas the litestone product weighs approximately 22kg. Less weight = Improved handling, less damage.

Litestone is ideal for all large housing developers being available in a standard range of sizes and colours.
