This is a great place to start looking for cladding stones either loose or in schist panels. Perhaps you are wondering just what are my cladding options? The following stones are all real and supplied as thin 30mm veneer. The first series is from our Otago quarry and is New Zealand made. The other series are imported. Every stone below has photos and videos for you to see. If you have any questions please contact us. We are happy to help you with selecting the right stone for your project.


In October 2014 SUMNERâ„¢ received its CODEMARK certificate to become New Zealand's first and only Codemarked supplier of stone veneer wall cladding. All council offices are now required to approve SUMNER Schist veneer cladding system. This signifigantly reduces compliance time and costs.


Please note this fully replaces the appraisal scheme / process which was an opinion under E2/AS1 as an alternative solution. Codemark means SUMNER Schist is an accepted solution.

What does this mean?

Until now claddings with appraisals were discounted for large to medium sized projects. Specifiers were hesitant. Stone veneer qualified only by way of an appraisal was very time consuming for the architect, and consequently costly for the client. Codemark and SUMNER Schist has changed this. Architects and specifiers of SUMNER schist can avoid council Requests for Information (RFI), which often required weeks of correspondence. This streamlined simplicity has seen specifier confidence increase and SUMNER Schist is now being specified on multi-storey apartment blocks, large palacial dwellings for discerning overseas clients and more.
