Architectural Panel Solutions

Architectural Panel Solutions has a heritage spanning over 50 years, providing premium quality rainscreen cladding solutions.  We’re proud to boast an excellent manufacturing facility in Hastings, in which we create our Petrarch engineered stone cladding panels and Downer original Helping Hand framing for the construction industry. 

About Petrarch Engineered Stone Cladding 

Petrarch is a versatile, engineered stone rainscreen cladding solution, created primarily from natural by-product materials; such as stone and marble. Thanks to its unique composition it has incredible intrinsic strength, and boasts an A2-s1,d0 reaction to fire rating (EN 13501). 

Highly durable and impact resistant, it is considerably lighter than natural stone systems. Engineered for perfection, this man-made alternative to stone cladding is extremely weather resistant - designed to withstand the most severe environmental conditions, and just like natural stone, Petrarch matures over time, giving character and depth to any architectural scheme. 

Petrarch reconstituted stone panels are manufactured in the UK where the product has been supplied to the rainscreen industry for over 50 years. Thanks to a robust distribution network it also adorns buildings across the USA and throughout Europe.

Our Vision

Though we are Made in Britain, our vision is to be the best on a worldwide scale; manufacturing and supplying premium engineered stone rainscreen and framing solutions, which is why we’re dedicated to building close relationships with like-minded partners across the globe. 

Architectural Panel Solutions is the UK’s leading manufacturer of engineered stone rainscreen cladding ‘Petrarch’ and Downer Helping Hand cladding framing system.
