Marestone Ventilated Facade Systems
Marestone Ventilated Facade System, introduces a brand new and hi-tech way to re-imagine wall cladding. This innovative system features unique architectural options to utilize varieties of Natural Stone-like colors with additional benefits.
Marestone offers the only hidden attachment, easy- installation cladding panels on the market. Long gone are the days of ugly screw-heads taking away from real Architectural Beauty; this system allows for a superior light weight product with a true natural stone look. . Marestone offers ease of customization and installation with a product that is both more durable and cost effective.
The Marestone Way
An Innovative Ventilated Facade System
The unique properties of Marestone panels make them ideal for exterior applications. UV exposure, moisture, changing weather conditions, and environmental contaminants have no significant effect on the surface of the panels. The panels perform exceptionally well outdoors and have a long track record of proven performance as well as high ranked classifications on American as well as Turkish standard weathering tests.
The non-porous surface of the Marestone Ventilated Facade System panels eliminates practically all dirt accumulation. This ensures the maintenance of a smooth and easy to clean product.
Quick & Simple Installation
A unique aspect of the Marestone panels is the lack of visible screws ensuring a clean cut, smooth facade. This provides the look of natural stone without the hefty cost. A traditional natural stone facade requires a galvanized steel substructure as well as a minimum of 1 1/4″ thickness on each stone panel. Alternatively, the Marestone Ventilated Facade System utilizes an aluminum substructure with a panel thickness of 5/8″ thus providing a much lighter natural facade option.
Marestone offers a wide variety of colors and finishes to provide you with ultimate design freedom and customization options. Our designers are passionate in working with you to create beautiful as well as durable solutions for the various challenges of facade system designs. The panels can be sandblasted with a company logo, combined with other materials, or even replaced with other colors according to installation. Marestone Ventilated Facade System provides a modern and unique appearance with endless options and customization possibilities.
Marestone is produced in 9 standard colors.
Special colors can also be produced with the technical help of Marestone laboratories.
Marestone Panel’s strength, compactness and standardization product, offers a vast variety of colors and appearances similar to that of natural stones. Different surface finishes include Silk – honed finish, bush hammered, antique bush hammered (brush hammered) and striped pattern.
Supporting-Concealed Fixing Structure (Rail System)
The Supporting Structure is designed and installed to match the structural nature of each façade. This allows the system a way to compensate for dimensional differences in the building structure. Fixing structures are normally arranged in three orthogonal directions.
The load-bearing supporting structure consists of integrated metal elements.
Aluminum “L” brackets are fixed on the external walls and/or columns and/or beams by stainless steel anchor bolts.
Vertical aluminum “T” profiles are installed to the brackets by self-drilling screws.
Marestone’s Proprietary Aluminum Profiles featuring safety movement gaskets are made of highly durable materials and installed horizontally on the vertical “T” profiles, by self-drilling screws.
The panels are fixed between two horizontal aluminum profiles inserted to the top and bottom grooves of the panels. Grooves are accurately performed at the factory.
This longitudinal channel and rail- insert system and the light weight of panels, make the Mare Cladding System , the world’s fastest applied stone cladding system.
One square feet of Marestone panel weight is 7.5 lb.
Mare System acts like a flexible and integrated membrane and is a robust system against strong seismic vibrations and wind impact that can result from natural disasters (ex- earthquakes and hurricanes). The joints between panels allow adequate ventilation and provide necessary space for expansion.
