Set Designers Find Big Help In Polyurethane Products

Set designers are always on a time crunch so it is extremely important to use stone products that speed up the process but look great at the same time.

They are always looking for ways to save money and time. Using a product that continually achieves both tasks is hard to find.

Polyurethane panels can help set designers build the facade of a stone house or castle in hours instead of months.

This product has been a great tool in the movie industry as well because it adds depth to the different scenes by making the sets seem more realistic.

Any set and trade show booth designer can agree after they see the process through. From beginning to end the faux stone panels help make the project look realistic but it also saves them time. Filming on site, whether it is a bank in Manhattan or a house in the suburbs, is quite expensive because of the price involved with renting out the space for a movie shoot.

That is why it is so important to use faux stone and other polyurethane architectural elements such as mantles for fireplaces and limestone style balusters because they not only create great looking sets but they speed up the construction process to a fraction of the time.

Durability is also a big issue when designing these sets because the chaotic process involved with the construction of a set can be quite hectic. The strength of the polyurethane panels and architectural elements is another great advantage of using these panels which what makes them perfect for set design.
