– STORK –
A new patented lightweight cladding and flooring solution. STORK stands for STONE & CORK
and combines different, but highly appreciated, intrinsic characteristics from both natural materials.
The solution is designed in layers and, depending on the application, it uses the latest composite
modelling strategies and production methods to become a nature blend of 2 highly valuable materials.
STONE VARIETIESSTORK is not rigid to any stone variety.
All kinds of stones, from marbles to granite,
from onyxes to diorites, can be used upon
correct dimensioning using STORK design.
Increased mechanical characteristicsStork is an innovative solution of reduced
weight and high resistance and durability,
where as physical and mechanical
characteristics allow a substantial increase of the
product application using natural stone.
DELIVERY and INSTALLATION EASEA product that allows higher delivery volumes
within the same batch supply.
Large slabs can easily be installed due to
STORK lightweight ( between 17 – 22
Technical elevated floorDesigned to work as a thermal and acoustic insulation curtain-wall It is provided in a dual-side solution PRESSTONE monolithic walls are non-structural and resist wind and seismic forces.
Improved mechanical properties are expected when
compared to tradictional stone elements, namely:
Over 50% weight reduction per square meter which leads
to lower energy costs on transport and handling and also,
lower installation times and easymaitenance and repair.
Higher mechanical strength comparatively to traditional
stone solutions due to an increased maximum flexural load
(approximatelly five times higher).
3 times higher impact strength and higher energy absoption
when compared to conventional stone solutions or to other
Improved thermal and acoustic properties are
expected when choosing STORK, namely:
Thermal insulation compatible with major
insulation projects using cork
(U = 0.037 to 0.040 W/mk).
STORK endures through life.
STORK allows suitable flooring installation
and better stone performance due to the
existence of a waterproofing layer.
| Core Adhesion
STORK resists to a highest number of aging
cycles, assured by cork and fiber bonding.
| Thermal Fatigue
STORK resist to temperature variations with
specified maximum pull-out resistance.
STORK suits any request. You will find our specified fixing system for ventilated facades and installation requirments for interior cladding.
| STORK panels are manufactured according the STORK PROCESS and submited to systematic inspections monitored by an external entity, asuring quality consistency.
STORK panels can be supplied in two ways:
designed to fit a project (slabs up to 1×0.8 m2) – panels are provided with sealed fixing anchors. All other fixing elements can be directly supplied by our installation partner.
| delivered in slab format (slabs up to 2×3 m2)
| STORK ventilated facade panels are not involved in structural requirments such as load transmission.
Structural requirments should be guaranteed by the structure that supports the cladding elements.
