Sto Corp. Introduces Sto Panel Technology

Atlanta, GA – September 8, 2016 – Sto Corp., the innovative world leader in cladding, air barriers, coatings, and restoration systems, offers the most advanced technology in prefabricated wall panel solutions with Sto Panel Technology.  Sto’s systemized approach to panelized construction offers many benefits over traditional construction methods, including installation speed, value and superior performance.  Sto Panels are lightweight, energy efficient, durable, and come in a wide variety of aesthetic options. 


Combining over 30 years of research and refinement with its industry leading wall claddings, Sto offers prefabricated exterior walls that save money and provide a superior building envelope for both new and restoration construction projects. Sto Corp. and its Sto Panel Technology affiliate network have substantially elevated prefabrication. With standardized details, diverse finishes and rapid installation, Sto Panel Technology can provide a solution that brings value to every member of the project team. 


Sto Panel Technology offers a panel structure to accept nearly any building finish in the industry.  Its prefabricated panels include steel studs, sheathing, Sto Gold Coat Air and Moisture Barrier (StoGuard®), continuous insulation and a tremendous range of aesthetic finishes, which include thin brick veneer, natural stone veneer, metal panels, and industry leading acrylic coatings.


Prefabricating exterior walls allows you to take control of the calendar and avoid unnecessary delays due to weather conditions. Sto Panel Technology can reduce the installation time of the building envelope by 80% when compared to conventional field installed construction.


In Sto’s state-of-the-art facilities, production costs are consistent from the first floor to the top floor. Sto Panel Technology saves money by eliminating scaffolding, boom lifts and swing stages, as well as reducing the complications of working at high elevations. Its production facilities are open year-round helping to avoid labor shortages and the common inefficiencies of a traditional job site.  Weighing better than 50% less than traditional face brick and precast panels, Sto Panel Technology further reduces budget by minimizing the amount of concrete and structural steel needed to support the structure.


Building in a well-lit, temperature-controlled facility allows Sto to construct a building envelope of superior quality. Sto’s close supervision of the construction of your building ensures that the finish surfaces, as well as the air and moisture barrier, are installed exactly to manufacturer specifications. Sto Panel Technology has invested in ASTM testing, Building Code Compliance and Energy Code Compliance. All of this testing results in an industry first five-year warranty on the performance of prefabricated wall panels.


With 21 affiliates and 50 locations across the country, Sto Panel Technology offers nation-wide consistent quality and performance. A vast majority of the United States is within a one-day transit of a Sto Panel Technology affiliate allowing trucking and management costs to be low.
