Stone Rainscreen Sub-framing
Preferred Partners: 

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.

Available Systems

Alpha Hci.20 System

Alpha Hci.20 System

Panel Sub-framing system that offers visible clip attachment used for anchoring ceramic, porcelain stone or natural stone panels for wall cladding applications. Clips are color matched to the panels for a discreet visible-fastened approach, especially for multiple story construction.

Alpha Vci System

Alpha Vci System

The Alpha Vci System serves as the Vertical C.I. Sub-framing system designed to address fire safety, engineering and thermal performance. Based on panel layout, the Alpha Vci System creates an attachment plane for vertical panel layout.  

Alpha Vci.40 System

Alpha Vci.40 System

Panel Sub-framing system that offers fixing using concealed, undercut anchors for cement composite, ceramic, stone, HPL and fiber concrete panels. The back of each panel is pre-drilled using undercut drill bit to receive the hanger clip and expanding bolt anchor.

Alpha Vci.44 System

Alpha Vci.44 System

Panel Sub-framing system that offers a versatile horizontal rail with concealed clip. Designed specifically for fiber cement, ceramic, stone, and fiber concrete rainscreen applications. Allows maximum flexibility in panel layout with running-bond patterns possible.
