Natural stone rainscreen cladding panels

Rainscreen Cladding, Stone Cladding & Natural Stone Panels

Rainscreen is a constructed façade system, which consists of a sub frame, or panellized rail system; Clad with natural stone ashlar, rainscreen cladding panels will give the appearance of a solid walled structure. Advances in both construction and technology have removed many of the structural constraints once required of natural building materials.

Marshalls Stancliffe Stones has developed a comprehensive range of British Natural Sandstone and Limestone cladding panels.

  • Natural stone adhered to a factory manufactured backing panel to create a lightweight composite panel.
