How many pieces come per box?
Koni manufactured brick and stone veneer products will vary in pieces per box for both flats and corners, which is why we sell by square foot or linear foot and not by individual piece.
Is each piece the same size?
Koni products are cast from molds of natural stones or ol chicago brick, with 4 to 5 mold pattern variations. Through this process, we are able to achieve the most realistic-looking brick and stone stone veneer on the market without repetition in the pieces. Each manufactured brick or stone will vary slightly in size, with no two pieces looking exactly the same.
How are the products made?
Koni Materials' brick veneer, stone veneer, and designer stone products are made from concrete pressed into hand-painted molds. Citali Series products are paneling created from natural stones. Luna Series products are 12x24 panels made from natural stone.
Are the products individual pieces or panels?
At Koni Materials®, we have products designed as individual pieces and we have products designed in panels.

What type of adhesive should I use?

Can the products be exposed to flame?
Koni products should not be in direct contact with flames. Koni products should not be in direct contact with flames. While they are not combustible, the product is not made to withstand extreme temperature variations, and may crack or become damaged over time. The materials can be used adjacent to flames (such as on a fireplace surround, backsplash, or fire pit surround), but we cannot recommend placement on the interior of a fireplace or fire pit.
Can I use the products as flooring?
Koni products are thin veneers for wall surfaces, making them lightweight and easy to install; they are not to be used as flooring.
How can I cut the product?
Koni products can be cut in multiple ways. Our recommendation would be an electric saw with a diamond blade or an angle grinder with a masonry-grade blade. However, if you have a specific way you want to cut the product, call us first to make sure it will not damage your product.
What if I get adhesive on the product?
If you get any type of adhesive on your product, try to clean it as quickly as possible to prevent staining from occurring. Usually, adhesives will dry within 24-48 hours and stains are very difficult to remove once dried.
Can I drill into the product?
Yes, you can drill into Koni products using a drill bit made for concrete.
Can I install the product DIRECTLY ON wood?
We can't recommend installation over wood as wood is a natural material that is prone to mold and absorb water. This water absorption will weaken the adhesive bond, causing the product to loosen or fall off the surface. You can contact us if you have any questions about installing on wood.
