Coral is unlike any other type of stone. It is actually the skeletal remains of marine polyps. Formed by nature beneath the ocean floor over a billion years ago and revealed during continental shifts, coral stone is noted for its exotic and distinctive fossilized texture. This highly durable natural stone is a visual and tactile reminder of the earth’s history.
Natural coral stone is only harvested from inshore dormant coral reefs, which contain the same intricate designs and textures of living coral. Our natural products are specially cut and sized to display the natural beauty of the coral and fossil patterns contained within the material.
Aside from its beauty, one of the most
notable characteristics of coral stone is its ability to maintain a cool temperature, even when exposed to high summer temperatures in tropical regions. This makes coral stone ideal for use in exterior furniture, fixtures and flooring.
There is no harm in exposing our coral stone to extreme cold, heat or rain. It is ideally suited to the varied weather conditions of a subtropical climate.
In its natural state, coral stone has an opaque look (matte), but it can be polished to obtain a glossy look. Additionally, it can be shaped in many ways to suit your needs.
A compelling desire in the market place for unique cast stone products has driven APF to acquire the latest technology in computer aided design and manufacturing. APF has the capability of creating and reproducing any architectural element a builder, designer, architect or homeowner could imagine.
Consulting services for design layout, material selection and installation recommendations are available in our showroom or on site. A commitment to high quality, capacity to ensure dependable lead times and competitively priced material has set a new standard in an industry that is forever evolving. The APF design, installation and management team has collectively over 50 years experience, and can simplify the concept to completion process. A full product line can be produced in full weight, GFRC (glass fiber reinforced cement), lightweight cement or hard coated foam.
