Mechanical stone fixing

Natural stone cladding on concrete with fixings using expansion bolts (dry fixing)

The following 7 points are taken into consideration when designing a fixing system for natural stone cladding:

  • Stone dimensions
  • Cavity structure, position size and insulation
  • Horizontal or vertical joint installation
  • Structural wall load carrying
  • Height of façade
  • Relevant dynamic loads such as wind load and seismic loads
  • Other design criteria of the project
