Whether your looking to clad the front of a bar, a table, a wall or a waterfall, Atlantis Stone can supply and fit granite stone cladding, marble stone cladding or engineered stone cladding to suit your needs.

Cladding

Architects have for centuries used thin stone panels to clad and line buildings. Today's building technology has liberated cladding from many structural constraints, giving designers greater freedom in the realisation of attractive cladding schemes.
Wall cladding is intended to equip internal or external buildings frontages.

Making a stone cladding means choosing:

  • Quality and durability, as witnessed by the oldest and most prestigious constructions
  • A long term investment
  • Low maintenance.

The required aesthetic shape will be obtained by the choice:

  • of the stone
  • of the finish (rough honed, bush-hammered, brushed, polished, etc.)
  • of the joints (structural and expansion joints, dividing joints, peripheral joints, running joints.)

There are 3 kinds of wall cladding:

  • thin cladding
  • double skin load bearing walls
  • Light weight cladding system

Thin cladding

A thin wall stone cladding is normally composed of up to 3 cm thick panels held in place by fasteners, and is a modern process for an everlasting material.

There are different types of thin cladding:

  • Attached wall cladding with mechanical anchors: this is the most frequently used process for large structures. It enables external thermal insulation, for new construction and for renovation.
  • Attached wall cladding with embedded anchors: a variant of the previous process, which can sometimes be used when the substrate is not concrete.
  • Attached wall cladding with embedded ties: economic traditional process, but incompatible with external thermal insulation.
  • Bonded wall cladding: the thin stone cladding is glued to a concrete substrate using high bond mortar glue.
Double skin load bearing walls

Vertical masonry structure in which the external non-bearing skin or a double wall is made of freestone or quarry stone, and the internal skin is made of brickwork or concrete:

  • the outside skin is supported on every floor or on every two floor if the wall thickness is 8 to 11 cm
  • the wall can span two or more floors if the skin thickness is more than 11 cm.
Light weight panels cladding system

StoneLite® panels are composite wall panels made up of a thin natural stone veneer reinforced with an aluminum honeycomb backing. The stone veneer can be almost any stone including granite, marble, limestone, slate and sandstone.

Stone cladding is a thin layer of stone or simulated stone applied to a building or other structure made of a material other than stone. Stone cladding is sometimes applied to concrete and steel buildings as part of their original architectural design.

...is natural stone or rock that has been selected and fabricated (i.e., trimmed, cut, drilled, ground, or other) to specific sizes or shapes. Color, texture and pattern, and surface finish of the stone are also normal requirements. Another important selection criterion is durability, the time measure of the ability of dimension stone to endure and to maintain its essential and distinctive characteristics of strength, resistance to decay, and appearance.

Metal devices for securing dimension stone to a structure. Types for stonework include those made of flat stock (strap, cramp, dovetail, dowel, strap and dowel, and two - way anchor) and round stock (rod cramp, rod anchor, eyebolt and dowel, flat-hood wall tie and dowel and wire toggle bolt).

Stone cladding- the perfect design feature

Stone cladding creates vibrant living spaces and beautiful aesthetics. This is where natural stone really makes a design point.

The huge range of colour can be used in any environment. It can be a quiet, beautiful design feature, or a fabulous excursion into colour usage, a collage of colour and form. The universal popularity of stone cladding is no coincidence.

Designers are happy to work with the endless possibilities it provides and home owners love the results. It's also a good way of doing something about bland, dull brickwork, relieving the monotony of brick facings which bore the mind as well as the eyes and need more than a coat of paint.

As external features, stone cladding can do quite literally anything. Getting an external design from the bland and ridiculous to the sublime is a lot easier than many homeowners may imagine. It can liven up an entire building with ease, add features to landscaping, and even decorate basic garden designs like retaining walls. Stone cladding can create a dream home. When you find the stone you want, you'll see why, as well as how.
