As existing customers already know, Telling Architectural prides itself on being an innovative company that constantly strives to stay at the cutting edge of its field. And it’s an aim which also extends to the partnerships Telling creates in order to continue to build on its reputation for excellence.
Telling is therefore pleased to unveil the details of an exciting new partnership it’s entered into with another innovative company, Shropshire-based Jesmonite, which is at the leading edge of material technology. This partnership will see Telling promote and manufacture the firm’s unique product, of the same name, Jesmonite.
Described as the “chameleon material of the building industry”, this can be used to replicate the appearance, and texture, of any surface finish – such as wood, stone, metal, leather and even a plethora of fabrics.
Developed to be a safe alternative to fibreglass and lightweight alternative to cast concrete, Jesmonite’s composite materials are a combination of a reactive mineral merged with pure water-based, acrylic resins. This creates a product that is far superior to other building materials currently available on the market.
But why is this?
It’s because Jesmonite is lighter, stronger, safer, finer and greener, and can be produced in a myriad of colours, as well as metallic finishes, to clients’ bespoke requirements.
Jesmonite’s benefits include:
- Its strength and flexibility make it more durable – therefore high impact resistant.
- It’s lighter than stone, glass-reinforced concrete, sand and cement products.
- With a class zero fire rating, reduced smoke density and toxicity characteristics, as well as being solvent free with no VOC’s, it’s safer.
- It can replicate the very finest detail which is deployed in a host of architectural environs.
- It’s water-based, not solvent-based, so it’s greener and kinder to the environment.
- It can be pigmented to any colour, or RAL reference. It can also mimic any texture or effect.
Jesmonite’s reputation is renowned and has been used to create stunning results across the globe, including a private palace, castle, cruise liner, and in work created by designers at the Royal College of Art in London.
A Telling spokesman said: “Telling is very excited to be working with Jesmonite and we hope that this will be the beginning of a long and successful partnership.”
