Thin-Clad Stone Design
Arriscraft replicates Nature and produces a unique (worldwide) stone product that is a high density, severe weathering, and fine-grained product called Calcium Silicate Stone. Once produced, the units can be hand chiseled, dressed or otherwise worked using “old world” stone techniques.
Arriscraft products can now be used in Thin-Clad veneer applications offering an unparalleled range of shape, configurations, color, speed of installation, durability and controlled costs.

Topics Covered:

~ Adhered Masonry Veneers Both Exterior and Interior
~ Clipped or Anchored Back Drained and Ventilated Rainscreen Applications (Sealed or Open)
~ Retrofit Applications
~ Barrier Walls, Drainage Plane Walls, Insulated Drainage Plane Walls, Back Drained and Ventilated Rainscreen Walls, and SB-10/ASHRAE 90.1 Compliant Wall Design
~ Super Flexible Polymer Fortified Mortars
~ Why the Metal lath and Scratch Coat adhered veneer method is inferior and a thing of the past
