Stone Cladding

Stone Panel

MNL stone panel

The more-natural-look (MNL) stone cladding panel is a pre-fabricated masonry unit. This modularized innovative stone system saves both time and money compared with traditional stone masonry. The MNL stone cladding modular consists both panels (or flats) and quoins (or external corners). The edges of all stones are hand-dressed so that it has a very natural appearance. Quoins are mostly done with actual stone-itself-cut stone pieces.

- What is a full concrete back system?

In a full concrete backing system, concrete (cement) at the panel back is actually the "glue" to freeze each piece of stone in its position. The stone pieces are arranged and attached to a fiber mesh back or a metal wire net. They are placed within a frame, poured with a 10mm layer of concrete at the backside. After a well-controlled solidification time, the panel finally reaches the highest strength hardness making it durable even in the coldest areas such as north European countries.

- Why larger size panel?

Compared with 150mm high panel, the 200mm high allows us to use larger/higher pieces of stone. We feel that the 550x200mm panel looks more close to nature.

The following panel is just made in 150mm high. The weight for each panel is about 7.5 kg for size 550x150x30-45mm. The standard packaging is 4 pieces in a carton box, 24 carton boxes in a crate.

Full Concrete Back Corner/Quoin
Type A: L Shape Fixed Corner

Quoin is an external angle of a wall. For the MNL series of stone panels, the regular size for quoin is L(200+300) x H200. The thickness is up to 40 mm from the back of the stone to the surface. The stone quoin we manufacture uses large-size actual-itself-cut stone, dressed and arranged so as to form a decorative contrast with the adjoining wall panels.

Type B: Straight Disjoined Corner

Straight disjoined/isolated corners are produced individually similar to a panel. Any 2 pieces of such disjoined corners can be joined together at the construction site easily to form a complete corner, as the photos below.

Minimum Concrete Back

- Why minimum concrete?

Minimum concrete back system uses less concrete for light weight purpose. Concrete mortar fills the gap between the stone pieces at the front. It uses limit concrete at the panel back. There is no the 10mm thick layer of concrete as the full concrete back so the weight is reduced by about 20%. Each panel weights for 7.0~8.0 kg per panel.

Strip Style Slip

Ledge Style Slip

Ledge-style slips (also called flats) are normally supplied in irregular shape and sizes. One typical specification range for sample is L(80-400) x H(30-150) x T(30-50)mm. Such stone are always used in a dry-stack walling system.

In a typical wooden crate package, we load about 1 SQM of loose stone pieces per each layer of the stack.
