Presstone

A flexible cladding element allowing unique visual sensory features, exclusive design, along with fully guaranteed integration with the remaining construction elements, such as windows or doors.

PRESSTONE unique system is designed to work as a thermal and acoustic insulation curtain-wall, tailored for modular and customized construction | it is provided in a dual-side solution that, depending on the architectural design, allows either or both inner and outer covering.

Nature Inspired cladding design

The innovative design brings unique opportunities in stone architecture | standard stone panel dimensions are surpassed to unattainable 7 m2 per panel | with a total thickness of 50 to 90 mm, the present solution can cover a two-storey building facade with a single panel.

A flexible cladding element allowing unique visual sensory features, exclusive design, along with fully guaranteed integration with the remaining construction elements, such as windows or doors.
PRESSTONE creative solution widens horizons in construction cladding allowing seamless integration of different stones and textures in the same panel | bringing a contemporaneous design from nature.

This new cladding system is applicable in all stones and contributes to reduce CO2 emissions when compared with other non-natural solutions | the solution may use both high and low market-value materials| a unique natural green cladding product.

PRESSTONE assembly and build-up are simple and based on common pre-existing fixing systems | the solution is easily adapted to all kinds of projects and tested to be implemented worldwide, contributing to reduce construction costs up to 40% | designed for portability.

Eco-eficient stone walls

PRESSTONE unique system is designed to work as a thermal and acoustic insulation curtain-wall, tailored for modular and customized construction | it is provided in a dual-side solution that, depending on the architectural design, allows either or both inner and outer covering.

PRESSTONE monolithic walls are non-structural | the solution is designed to resist different atmospheric environments and water penetration | it is dimensioned to resist wind and seismic forces acting on the building, along with its own dead load weight.

The total thickness ranges from 50 – 150 mm depending on the level of insulation required and without compromising service life | panels are designed and built to a favourable compressive state assuring unlimited life without exhibiting falling detachments in testing with representative mechanical loading.

PRESSTONE brings freedom to design and architecture | allows combination of different stones, colours and textures in both outer and inner sides thus enabling unique projects. PRESSTONE walls are incombustible; they resist firing temperatures without burning | the solution is plague resistant; they are not affected by hazardous plagues like other natural materials.

Build-up is simple and based on conventional solutions used in modular construction | designed for convenience. Reduced CO2 emissions compared with other non-natural cladding solutions taking full advantages of natural stone unique features | design with a natural curtain wall.

Construction time to market is reduced | cost reduction relatively to traditional stone cladding and wall systems applied in construction.

Construction Guaranteed Merging nature with technology

Safety guarantee on application | fixing systems for both solutions are less dependent on stone properties comparing to conventional cladding solutions | a construction solution less human-dependent with increased efficiency on cladding and walling.

Application using conventional lifting equipment (similar to concrete walls) | traditional construction apparatus such as scaffolding and cofferdams are avoided | construction site requirements are optimised | PRESSTONE solutions have less risk of damaging stock materials and contributes to an overall reduction of operational space and cost.

PRESSTONE turn-key solution is delivered without special requirements for handling on the construction site | ready to be installed directly from transport to building.

The solution can be replaced after mounting | panels are independent allowing that full replacement can be done without interfering with adjacent elements.

PRESSTONE service guarantees full traceability from the quarry to the final product| special projects incorporate optical fiber monitoring systems allowing remote surveillance of PRESSTONE behavior | this non-destructive inspection technique also contributes to increase predictive maintenance.

Users feel stone function

PRESSTONE combines unique design, natural materials and thermal insulation | enables thermal comfort assessed regardless of external weather conditions | each project wall tailored to environment, showing energy savings in both active heating and cooling.

The solution is provided with Increased sound insulation, comprising the use of natural acoustic insulation materials | PRESSTONE guarantees peaceful resting.

Water tightness assured by an outstanding impermeability using all-inclusive sealing | easy to clean with water, PRESSTONE also simplifies cleaning and maintenance.

PRESSTONE wall ventilation is more efficient than traditional masonry wall by a factor of 35%| showing less humidity, it allows the elimination of interior mould, stains and all sorts of wall “pathologies”.

PRESSTONE system incorporates all safety requirements | fatigue tests confirm a 40% increase in resistance comparative to conventional stone cladding solutions | the solution brings an immediate benefit in service life.
