Cladding Solutions

Hal Mann Vella is a ‘dream come true’ for any designer, as HMV has the ability to work natural marbles and granites or agglomerated marbles and then manufacture terrazzo tiles, pre-cast terrazzo elements or reconstituted stone flooring and accessories to match or blend with the natural stones or to a designer’s palette. Whether you are working on a granite-clad office tower, a marble hotel lobby, or a simple vanity, table or kitchen top, Hal Mann Vella has the materials and expertise to put things together on schedule and within specified budgets. HMV holds a sizable stock of over 60 colours and types of natural marbles and granite.

RAINSCREEN CLADDING SYSTEM

The essentials of a Rainscreen system are to allow the ingress of air at the base of the system and the egress of air at the top of the system. This ventilated cavity allows any water which penetrates the panel joints to be partly removed by the ‘stack effect’ and partly removed by running down the rear face of the panels and out of the base.
ADVANTAGES
APPLICATIONS
PRINCIPLES
 

FACADE ENGINEERING

As part of a comprehensive technical support service, Hal Mann Vella can provide assistance for the safe and optimised setting out of the grid system through the preparation of ‘project specific’ static calculations. These calculations determine the engineering requirements of the façade, through the most practical and economical use of the system components. On most projects appearance, suitability, availability and cost are likely to be the determining factors. Ideally the stone or Engineered materials selected will be the most appropriate for the application, readily available, produced to the required tolerances and within budget. In all instances detailed research should be underken to establish the technical competency of the stone at an early stage.
RAINSCREEN CLADDING
Rainscreen cladding is generally defined as panels that are individually supported and restrained allowing construction to take place with open joints. Differential movement is accommodated in each joint, which negates the need for larger compression and expansion joints. Open jointed systems provide a ventilated cavity and require waterproof rainscreen insulation systems. Ventilated cavities assist in achieving the demands of the new European energy saving requirements.
NATURAL STONE TESTING
To meet the latest requirements and to confirm the stones suitability for use in a specific application, tests should be undertaken in accordance with the appropriate standards as set out in BS EN 1469.

An igneous rock formed from volcanic magma, producing the hardest and most durable of all natural stones, making it suitable for all Construction, landscaping And interior applications. Massive worldwide availability of literally hundreds of different Granites gives Designers the confidence to specify the product of their choice with guaranteed delivery.
Finishes: polished, honed, flamed, brushed / antique.
Applications: cladding, masonry, flooring, paving, worksurfaces.
MARBLE
A hard crystalline metamorphic rock composed primarily of calcite which has been used as a building and flooring material for centuries. The recognisable and characteristic veining in marbles are due to various mineral deposits like clay, sand and iron oxide which were originally present in the sedimentary Limestone.
Finishes: polished, honed

Applications: cladding, flooring, bathrooms and vanity 
tops.
TERRACOTTA/CERAMICS
Through the years, terracotta and ceramics have been used successfully as a building material. Contemporary architecture and manufacturing techniques have produced a vast new selection of products for cladding purposes.
Finishes: smooth, glazed and sand blasted Applications: cladding, sunscreens and acoustic panels
TERRAZZO
Engendered terrazzo cladding panels specially developed to meet the performance requirements of the ventilated facade cladding. Panels with maximum format of 120cm x 120cm.
Finishes: polished, brushed, homed, ribbed and 3D surface.
Applications: cladding & paving.
HARDSTONE
A sedimentary rock composed of calcium carbonate which has formed on the sea bed millions of years ago from the remains of seashells and marine organisms. Finishes: polished, honed, flamed, brushed / antique.
Applications: cladding, masonry, flooring, paving and
