With a brand new material inside, and true beauty on the outside, Qora was born from the belief that there could finally be a cladding product without trade-offs.
Qora’s patented materials and unique designs create a lightweight and durable product. Most Qora cladding panels weigh between 2 and 3 pounds per square foot which is a fraction of the weight of comparable traditional materials. Lighter weight cladding systems can more easily mitigate cracking, foundation impacts, and other issues associated with heavy cladding materials.
Qora is manufactured using a proprietary phenolic resin and compounding technology. Layers of pigments, surfacing materials (where applicable), fiberglass reinforced molding compound, and open cell phenolic rigid foam are pressed and chemically bonded to ensure long term durability and performance
Each Qora Stone panel has a built-in 1/4” standoff and Breather Buttons to allow free movement of liquid water and vapor. The built-in rain screen helps to manage moisture by keeping water away from the wall assembly, reducing the risk of water damage overtime.
Each Qora cladding panel covers up to 8 sf per piece which speeds installation and helps ensure a flat and uniform wall. Compared to traditional materials, Qora panels create more simplified wall systems that are easier to maintain and repair.
