Slabs may be purchased from any quarry, in any country and shipped to the factory to be mounted onto the AHSP system. Some stones are not well suited to exterior applications and should be tested for freeze thaw stability as well as fading or deterioration.

Stones are mounted onto the AHSP system finished in the same manner as a slab of dimensional stone. Polished, honed and sandblasted finishes are the most common.
