The Noon collection is the latest addition to Echelon Masonry’s Italian-made Mirage Porcelain Veneers, available in cladding panels for interior and exterior use. The veneer’s colors and textures emulate the look of distressed wood, with a choice of four color palettes – Daylight, Ember, Honey and Charcoal – and color pattern variations ranging from moderate (V3) to substantial (V4).

Noon’s panels feature both an ultra-low water absorption rate, which allows the veneer to resist surface mold and other exterior stains, and an extremely high compressive strength. It does not require any treatments or sealers, and will not be affected by efflorescence or discoloration, even if used near water features.

The Noon veneer’s units measure 4 inches wide by 18 inches long and vary from .30 to .60 inches thick. Its panels weigh less than nine pounds per square foot, which allows for ease of use in vertical applications.
