Lightweight natural granite rainscreen system.
A 17 mm natural granite panel reinforced with an epoxy resin impregnation and a glass fibre reinforcement backing. The 17 mm thick natural granite panel is profiled with a 10 or 12 x 3 mm Kerf groove to facilitate easy installation onto two horizontal carrier rails (top and bottom). Other fixing systems are available and are all designed to allow easy installation to reduce costs and eliminate the need for a specialist workforce.
The granite used has the same qualities as conventional thickness granite cladding.
