Airtec Stone | Natural stone cladding

Airtec Stone cladding offers a wide range of options for the design of high-quality natural stone façades with a vast choice of stone types and panel sizes plus preformed panels and parts. Even large panels up to 4.7m² can be used on the system without any visible fixing elements. The panels consist of a 8-10mm top layer of natural stone on a lightweight concrete base no more than 19mm thick, ensuring the panels are up to 60 per cent lighter than solid stone slabs.

Preformed panels and parts

Because of the material properties of the composite panel it is possible to create three-dimensional preformed elements such as corners, angles or U-sections for a monolithic effect. This involves mitring the composite panels and securing them with an invisible joint, using adhesive and mechanical fixings. Cantilever panels up to 400mm in length can be attached to an anchoring panel.
