Architectural Stone Cladding Product Installation Guides
- It is worth noting that after delivery the material should be stored in a clean, dry environment.
- Under extreme weather conditions, for example when there is a danger of frost or torrential rain, no bricklaying should be undertaken at all.
- Where it is necessary to use only part bricks for exposed surfaces, they should always be cut and not broken.
- The bricks should be laid in a regular, even pattern.
- To achieve a secure joining between the bricks and the mortar, the cladding tiles are simply glued to the wall. Gipsolep is used on the internal walls and Elastik can be used on both Internal and External walls.
- Fresh building work must be protected from rainwater by covering the work.
- Before every break in the work the joints should be scratched out and opened up to a depth of 2 cm so that correct pointing is possible.
Guide to Pointing:
At times of bad weather the pointing should be delayed. Frost and the risk of heavy rain, as well as very strong direct sun, are not ideal pointing conditions.
- Before starting to point, the brickwork has to be systematically wet.
- Essential for the weatherproofing of the wall is the composition of the mortar and its insertion. The mortar should be mixed as per the instructions on the tub.
- The pointing mortar is applied in 2 operations:
- 1st operation:- first the vertical joints and then the horizontal.
- 2nd operation:- first the horizontal and then the vertical joints.
- By the 2nd operation take care to seal the joints well and press smooth.
- Fresh joints should be thoroughly wet with clean water so that the water from the mortar is prevented from being drawn via its pore system into the bricks
