At Everything Stone we supply, manufacture and install a huge range of stone wall cladding systems to suit any application. Today we showcase Lapitec®.
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. Lapitec® is commonly used for ventilated facades, exterior coverings and long lasting wall cladding.
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.
