Our stone cladding panels are done with a concrete base (or a mesh backing for lightweight purpose) as a modular - a concrete backing masonry unit. This modularized innovative natural stone panel system saves both time and money compared with traditional stone masonry. We use large 550 x 200 mm size panel which allow the use of larger pieces of stone to build a panel, giving a more natural look. The stone cladding modular consists both Z or S shaped panels (flats) and quoin (external corners). The edges of all panel and quoin are hand-dressed. Actual stone itself cut corners (higher cost) if needed are also available at request.
On the left is a dimensioned drawing for standard-size concrete backing panel, covering size W550xH200mm, the thickness is up to 40 mm from the concrete back to the stone surface.
We can use different stone materials: slate, quartzite, granite, sandstone and limestone which has different colors ("colour" in British English) and textures. The individual pieces making up a panel also vary from piece to piece.
Following are the three forms of panel back we're producing. The full concrete or minimum concrete back are normally produced. The other option - metal wire net back is available but more expensive. Ceramsite concrete can be used at request for high-efficient insulation project.
Two galvanized metals fixing clips can be embedded into the panel along with the production. When panels come with integrated fixing clips, the mechanical fixing to wall job is easier. All you need is appropriate bolts, screws and hammer. The additional cost for these is about US$0.15 per panel.
The smaller size actually is not so small, only the height of the panel is 50mm less.
The extra large version being 50mm wider & 100mm higher than standard one brings a much stronger visual effect and more natural breath.
Quoin is an external angle of a wall. The stone quoin we manufacture uses large size actual itself cut stone dressed or arranged so as to form a decorative contrast with the adjoining wall panels.
Below are the solid quoin with the most popular color for selling. The standard size is W(300+200)xH200xT35-45mm
All the stones are hand selected and trimmed. The pre-assembled concrete backing panel columns provide great simplicity in installation since they are stack-able.
The stone-itself-corner pieces cut angle cut 90 degrees from a real stone to build concrete back quoins.
This is a typical work shop for CBP panel production. Ledge stones are carefully knocked, trimmed, planed & placed.
The finished panels are being cleaned with water and brush from piece to piece before packaging.
Every 2 pieces of concrete back panels are bundled with 2 belts and put in crate.
A crate holds 4 no. pieces of concrete back stone column modular.
Every 2 pieces of finished concrete back panels are bundled with 2 belts and then put in a crate. Customer prefers this rather than card board boxes because the latter may rot stored in damp places.
