April 15th Chapter Meeting

Designing with Thin-Clad Stone
We will discuss two distinct installation systems and the wide variety of potential uses for Thin-Clad Stone materials. These uses will include both interior and exterior veneer applications. The presentation will focus on both adhered masonry and “clipped” or anchored veneers.
Learning Objectives:
• Understand the process of quarried stone formation
• Understand how Calcium Silicate Stone is created and how the process is similar to quaried stone formation
• Identify two distinct systems for installing Thin-Clad stone materials (adhered veneers and rainscreen veneers)
• Identify Thin-Clad wall design systems applicable for the specific building designs, climate, codes etc. (e.g. face sealed walls, drainage plane assemblies, insulated drainage plane assemblies, and ASHRAE 90.1 compliant wall assemblies)
• Recognize the overall design versatility of Thin-Clad stone as a cladding material
• Understand the benefits of using Calcium Silicate Materials (e.g. green benefits)
