Find the Right System for You

Our approach to panelized construction offers many benefits over traditional precast panels. StoPanels are lightweight, energy efficient, durable and require only a fraction of the typical installation time.

Available StoPanel Systems

Classic ci

This lightweight prefabricated panel is both energy efficient and durable, with continuous insulation and StoGuard waterproof air barrier standard. Versatile Sto finishes allow for almost any design aesthetic.

Classic NExt ci

This panel uses the same tried and tested components as the StoPanel Classic ci assembly, but adds vertically notched adhesive, drainage wedges, and weeps.

Impact ci

Sto’s Premier panel system includes all the benefits of the Classic NExT panel system, with the addition of self-cleaning properties of Stolit Lotusan textured finish and high impact resistance that meets Miami-Dade small and large missile impact requirements.

XPS ci

This lightweight prefabricated panel is a decorative and protective exterior wall cladding that provides superior air and weather tightness along with excellent thermal performance and durability by incorporating extruded insulation within the panel assembly.

Brick ci

StoPanel Brick ci is a lightweight, energy efficient prefabricated exterior wall panel with a continuous air and moisture barrier, exterior insulation as an option, and a variety of thin veneers such as thin brick; all at a fraction of the weight of conventional thick brick/or other thick veneers.

Precast ci

StoPanel Precast ci is a lightweight, energy efficient pre-fabricated exterior wall panel with a continuous air & moisture barrier, exterior insulation and a variety of integral decorative & protective finish options to replicate precast concrete; all at a fraction of the weight of precast concrete.

Metal ci

Metal panel construction at a lower cost, with StoGuard waterproof air barrier and exterior insulation standard.

Backup

StoPanel Backup is the starting point for all StoPanel cladding options. consisting of cold formed steel, glass-mat faced gypsum sheathing and StoGuard air and moisture barrier. StoPanel Backup is the backbone of StoPanel technology.

Dri-Design

StoPanel Dri-Design® system features a continuous air & moisture barrier, exterior insulation and fully customizable, unlimited design option. Plus, Dri-Design panels are easy to install and built to the highest industry standards. With Dri-Design the creative possibilities are endless.

Swisspearl

StoPanel Swisspearl® system is a unique fiber cement panel system that offers design flexibility, functionality and innovation with rainscreen design benefits that adds lasting weather protection and superior value.exterior insulation standard.
