DesignStone enables residential housing & light commercial buildings to be constructed in a manner similar to a traditional light framed building, yet have the same load carrying & resisting capability as a full masonry or concrete facade system.
A complete wall assembly, the DesignStone system consists of two primary unique segments, an external envelope (facade) and a supporting structural framework. The facade and structural elements integrate exclusively to form the patented DesignStone Wall Assembly - described as a layered combination of pre-cast concrete cladding panels (envelope) hung on a light gauge steel framework (structural) that is reinforced by concrete-filling, backed up by internal linings and multiple insulation combinations.
DesignStone is a high performance, hybrid building product offering sustainability & resilience solutions for the new residential and light commercial housing/construction markets.
Controlled Internal Environment | The DesignStone wall system keeps the outside out & the inside in via rain, air, vapor & thermal control layers.
Architectural Precast Facade | Concrete offers an extended design life of well over 60 years, no other products offer this. DesignStone`s precast masonry units provide protection against the elements & is a long term zero maintenance product that retains its original appeal.
Concrete Filled Steel Frame | Designstone`s precast panels are connected to the steel framing by means of a cast in 6mm (1/4 inch) galvanised rods. The studs are filled with concrete to form a monolithic “T” section which creates an engineered, load bearing walling system.
Multiple Thermal Combinations | DesignStone`s insulation values can be tailored to suit demanding polar, desert, coastal and tropical climates. The system offers affordable Australian R-Values up R10 (U.S. R-Values up to R55)
