Feature Stone Cladding - Natural Stone Panelling System Feature Stone cladding is a natural stone panelling system specifically designed to create a distinctive, natural stone finish wherever it's used. The panels rise in interlocking pieces' fitting seamlessly together. Eliminating the need for specialist labour and making feature stone a quick and easy system to use. Suitable for small projects, homes or larger developments, Feature Stone cladding transport the timeless character of real stone to any location. Feature Stone cladding panels are deeper than other standard stone systems currently available. This allows the panels to have a greater variety of stone sizes, creating a more realistic and authentic finish.

Behind the beautiful exterior, Feature Stone cladding panels fit together making the construction process extremely fast and efficient, removing the need for a qualified stonemason, therefore each and every modular panel is completely unique, each having its own colour, sizes and textures. Feature Stone cladding also uses a larger base panel than many other panelling systems which allows a greater variation in stone sizes. This is what gives Feature Stone cladding its authentic dry stone appearance. Feature Stone cladding versatility allows it to be used on both exterior and interior wall, and on commercial or residential projects, making it versatile enough to suit builders, architects and home owners.


Fitting Instructions for Internal Walls
Feature Stone can be fitted both internally and externally. For internal applications it is critical that the surface onto which it is being applied has the strength and stability to hold the product. With a weight in excess of 65kg per m2 Feature Stone cannot be placed directly onto gypsum based products, plasterboard, plywood etc. In these instances it is necessary to fix a cement based board onto the wall and to clad the stone onto the board. 

Fitting Instructions for Block Walls
Adhesive should be generously applied to both the panels and the surface they are being fixed to (approximately 5mm depth on each). The panels should then be installed from the lowest row and fitted together along the length of the wall, by simply fitting into place using a rubber mallet. Before moving to the second row, it is important to check that the joints between the pieces are alternated to ensure that they are not visible.

If there is a corner in the design, then that should be the starting point. It is vital to use a long cornered piece on the bottom row and then alternate between courses with short corner pieces as you move up the wall. For heights above 3 meters, the use of a simple mechanical fixing system is recommended.

Fitting Instructions for Timber Frame Walls
If the exterior of a timber frame home is not built from block then an exterior grade cement board must be fitted. Cement board is a board made from Portland cement and aggregate core, with coated glass fibre mesh embedded in the back and front surfaces. Ends are square cut and edges are reinforced and finished smoothly. The thickness is 12.5mm.
