Material Overview: Stone rainscreens are increasingly more in popular for drained and back-ventilated rainscreen applications. Using various quarries, stone panels are installed with either concealed systems or with exposed clip systems. All types of stones in varying sizes and finishes are being used to create dramatic, high performance rainscreen facades. Anchor systems can be engineered to ensure the appropriate pullout strengths once stone thickness are determined. Design Considerations: The local quarry is best at determining what size panels and thicknesses are available. ECO Cladding can then work to develop the appropriate attachment system for the project.
