About Specialty Systems

Specialty Systems

Our system portfolio includes a series of special wall assemblies engineered to meet very particular design requirements of the building enclosure (Hurricane resistance for example) and to accommodate different types of building substrates such as Aerated Autoclave Concrete or Insulated Concrete Forms.

Direct-applied Finish Systems for Soffits and Ceilings

Direct-applied Exterior Finish System (DEFS) for use on weather protected walls and un-insulated exterior soffit and ceiling applications.

StoQuik® Gold Soffit

Direct-applied exterior finish system over glass mat faced gypsum board for use on weather-protected ceilings, soffits and walls.

Our Pool Room Finish System provides a decorative and resistant interior enclosure for indoor pools and similar enclosed spaces subject to high humidity, chlorine and other chemicals.

Sto Interior Finish System for Pool Rooms

Decorative and protective finish system for interior walls and ceilings of residential or commercial indoor swimming pool rooms.

Sto Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) Finish Systems

Insulating Concrete Form (ICF) is a system of formwork for concrete that stays in place as permanent building insulation for energy-efficient, cast-in-place, reinforced concrete walls, floors, and roofs.

The forms are interlocking modular units, somewhat like Lego bricks, that are dry-stacked and filled with concrete, serving to create a form for the structural walls or floors of a building. ICF construction is becoming increasingly commonplace for both low rise commercial and residential construction as more stringent energy efficiency and natural disaster resistant building codes are adopted.

Decorative and protective finish system for Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) construction.

Sto ICF Stucco System

Decorative and protective stucco finish system for Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) construction.

Sto ICF Insulated Finish System

Decorative and protective finish system for above grade exterior AAC wall construction.

StoTherm® Hurricane Impact Systems

Protection for Coastal Construction

Every year, Hurricanes threaten the coastlines of North America, striking coastal areas in 82 of the last 100 years. From Hurricane Dennis to Katrina, Rita to Wilma, the new millennium has brought 27 major Hurricanes and along with it more than $56.8 billion in property insurance losses for homes and businesses.

Sto Hurricane Impact (HI) Systems provide a full range of exterior cladding options to protect against hurricane and tropical storm winds, water intrusion, and wind-borne debris which is a leading cause of building envelope failure. All of Sto’s Hurricane Systems meet the stringent Miami-Dade County, Florida NOA criteria for impact resistance, air and water infiltration, and wind load resistance.

All Hurricane Systems can be installed economically on a variety of construction types, including: metal frame with gypsum sheathing, wood or steel frame with plywood sheathing, or concrete masonry. Sto also provides a wide variety of decorative and protective wall finishes, affording outstanding appearance and superior wall protection against some of the most severe weather conditions in North America.

Other key features of the Hurricane Systems include:

  • Competitively priced with other cladding systems.
  • Fire-resistance for up to two hours.
  • Lightweight and easy to install.
  • Backed by Sto’s Limited Labor and Materials Warranty.
  • Technical Support available in person, phone and online.
