Sintered stone wall cladding made of Lapitec® is unique due to slab dimensions and functional properties.

Lapitec® slabs are available in a very large format (3365mm x 1500mm), which makes them the biggest available on the market.

The huge format ensures a high degree of flexibility to architects, that are free to design every kind of application even with complex or unusual shapes.

Lapitec® has a number of attributes and properties typical of porcelain:

Extreme resistance to high temperatures, frost, UV rays, scratches and abrasions.

Why Lapitec® is ideal for exterior wall cladding:

•    Resistant to UV rays
•    resistant to high temperatures and freezing
•    resistant to deep abrasions
•    dimensional stability
•    degrades polluting nitric oxide molecules (photo catalytic property)
•    very large format: 3365mm x 1500 mm
•    Available in thicknesses of 12, 20, 30 mm. The thicknesses 20 and 30 mm confer high resistance to shock.

Lapitec® sintered stone slabs can be mechanically fixed or bonded to an existing surface.

In both conditions it ensures resistance and lightness to the entire structure.

This Lapitec® sintered stone is commonly used for ventilated facades, exterior coverings and long lasting wall cladding.

Using Lapitec® is a valid alternative to glass layers in curtain walls, thanks to its resistance to heat, freezing, high-speed wind and extreme weather conditions.

While designing a curtain wall, Lapitec® slabs can be easily fixed on the same supports used for glass layers.

Architects can design a curtain wall system with the flexible combination of glass and Lapitec® slabs, without compromising resistance and lightness of the structures.

According to the aesthetic effect you want to get with your project, Lapitec® is available in many finishes, some of them softer and smoother, others coarser and rougher, similar to split stone.
