Dallas-based Precision Wall Systems, manufacturer of the Gridworx stone cladding system, has chosen Indiana Limestone Co. to provide its superb signature limestone for their Gridworx stone-hanging system. This partnership enhances the useful range of the stone for commercial and public buildings, enabling architects, designers and others to employ the beauty and lasting performance of limestone with a system that makes installation rapid and uncomplicated.
The patented Gridworx mechanical stone hanging system provides an excellent means for applying thinner, lighter panels of Indiana limestone to buildings. With an emphasis on standardized, engineered parts and pieces, this system adapts well to today’s construction environment.
The Gridworx system begins with continuous horizontal tracks extruded from structural (aircraft-grade) aluminum and fastened to the substrate. The stone panels are placed in the "J Channel" of the track. “L Brackets" are then inserted into kerf on the top of each panel. As the panels are rotated the "L Brackets" snap into a receptacle in the track above.
Every project is accompanied by an engineering Letter of Compliance stamped by a PE registered in the project state. The Gridworx system is covered by a 20-year warranty
“Our Gridworx system is the most advanced in North America,” said Precision Wall Systems President and CEO Stephen Loyd. “It’s the only system that allows for non-sequential setting of stone. In the event of error, damage or modification it is not necessary to interrupt the flow of work.” Crews can continue installing beyond the point of any such complication and return to take care of it later without difficulty.
“We’re in the business and we want the best,” Loyd said. “That’s why we sourced the company that provides the best limestone in the country.”
