    Differentiate with Marestone

    One of the strongest stones,  which like natural stones, is a well compacted formation of various sized mineral granules that are mostly calcium carbonates including the binder cement. Marestone can be cut and grounded perfectly like natural stone, while having many characteristicst of natural stones.

    Anywhere natural stone can be used,

                                                                        Marestone can be used!

    DISTINCTIVE FEATURES

    • The lightest and safest: Stone weight being 842.4 lbs/ft2 (35.5 kg/m2) for 0.59 in (15 mm)
    • Seismic resistance: Inherent in the system
    • Strong but not brittle: Stronger than almost 90% of the natural stones in tensile and compressive strength
    • Easily workable and processable: You can cut, engrave, channel, chisel, bush hammer the Marestone
    • High wind load resistance: Only 0.47 in (12 mm thick test panels of large size 23.6x 47.2 inches (60×120 cm) resisted to static wind load according to ASTM C1201-91 and CWCT (BS) at min. 9492 lbs/ft2  (400 kg/ m2)
    • Anchorage strength:  Horizontal aluminum profile in the channel of the stone to the stone itself is measured according to ASTM C 1354
    • Impact resistance: Measurements of the system are also very satisfactory. (EOTA & CWCT-BS 8200)
    • Physical strengths and durability: One of the least water absorbing, compact, minimum porosity, high tensile and compressive strengths, high abrassion resistant, excellent freeze and thaw durability material
    • Fire class:  A1. Marestone does not include fibers
    • System components are all inert and non-toxic
    • Fast and accurate installation: Superior features of the Marestone Ventilated Rainscreen Cladding
    • Workable and processable: Marestone pannels can be sawed, textured, channelled etc. according to any needs to form colums, Jhambs, sills, ornaments etc. in a more simpler and easier manner compared to the stones
    • Easiest cleaning: Simple washing methods are sufficient for the least water absorbing, low porosity, high durability and colors are also permanent as consistent with its long life span

    Various colors and sizes for your facade!

    The Marestone color selection allows for Design Freedom with  the highest quality natural pigments of iron oxides which are known for having high UV resistances.  Though Marestone being cement based, efflorence is not encountered, color and shades are permanent.

    Unique, Natural, Soft, and Appealing!

    Marestone provides a variety of natural looks .  It can be processed like natrual stones, cut, ground, edged, engraved, channeled, chiseled, honed, polished, bush hammered, and sand blasted.

    Thinnest thus lightest dimensioned stone pannels

    Dimensioned in adherence to tightest tolerances. Marestone typical pannel sizes are 24×59 in (60×150 cm), 24×47 in (60×120 cm). Other sizes can be dimensioned from the basic pannels.  Typical thickness for a typical facade stones is 0.59 in (15 mm). Thickneses are possible from 0.47 in to 3.15 in (12 mm to 80 mm).

    Different colours and textures are applicable by Marestone Technology ; such as  Jerusalem stone, Indiana Limestone,Portland stone, Crema Marfil, Carrara and others.

    Marestone Facade System “one of the world’s least water absorbing and thinnest man made stone in its category

    332

    Large size and thin stone panels are dimensioned, channeled, processed and accompanied with a innovative and dependable back system of load bearing profiles, brackets and anchors.

    P1030138ray-sistem(1)

    Horizontal profiles in channels of the Marestone panels are all through the complete length of the channels at the bottom and the top of the stones. They are made of aluminum and carries the already light weight stone panels in a perfectly load distributing manner.

    Load bearing profiles are aluminum. Aluminum is very strong, ductile, lighter weight, and weather resistant. Sections used are mostly T and L shape. Lengths generally are in range of 3 to 6 meters. The metal thickness, depending on wind load especially, can be from 2 mm to 3.5 mm.

    Brackets are anchored to the structure and load bearing profiles are fixed to them. They provide the distance between the structure’s wall and the rain screen. They also are made of aluminum. Generally being in L shape, they can be in various lengths and thicknesses depending on structural calculations. Space between building wall to the rain screen can be arranged in a large span of alternatives.

    Anchorage of the brackets are provided with safe and proven steel anchors.
