Stone Cladding

External Stone Walls Various stone finishes are available...

Polished / Tooled = Highly reflective finish. The full colour and grain of the stone becomes visible. A poished fiish seals the pores and gives a good weather and chemical protection.

Honed = Very smooth finish without reflections to show the full colour of the stone.

Flamed = Produced by applying a high-temperature flame to the surface ofthe stone. This flame fractures the surface crystals, leaving a rough textured finish.

Sequence of operations...

Each wall stone is individually numberd to correspond to theshop drawings. The setting out line is established and metal brackets and subframe is installed in accordance with the initial setting out line. Prior to drilling a cover meter is employed to check the cover on the concrete reinforcement. Each stone is individually supported and restrained.

Typical wall panel size 0.75 m2/stone.

  • Stones 0.5 m2 and under = 14 no/day
  • Stones 0.75 m2 and under = 12 no/day
  • Stones 0.75 - 1.00 m2 = 10 no/day
  • Flat Stone walls - Simple = 9.0 m2/day
  • Flat Stone walls - Average = 5.1 m2/day
  • Flat Stone Walls - V. Complex = 1.8 m2/day
  • Curved Wall cladding = 8.0 m2/day
  • Edge Beams/Window edges = 2.3 m2/day
  • Stone soffits = 4.0 m2/day

A cladding team consists of 1 fixer and 1 mate.
