Aerospace technology meets traditional construction

Cladding a whole building in purely natural stone harbors  many problems for the architect and contractor of today:

  • Substantial weight implications
  • Lengthy installation time
  • Difficult on site assembly
  • Small panel size
  • Requires highly skilled labour
  • Unknown design safety
  • Poor thermal comfort
  • High Cost
  • Low green credentials

Our Solution: Honeycomb backed Stone

Beauty

Through using honeycombed back stone, panel strength improves drastically allowing for large format panels. This also means less grouting, less fixings and less cutting.

Speed

Our complete package of design to installation creates a quick, headache free solution. We arrive to site with a predesigned and manufactured product that just needs installing.

Technically Superior

The composite cavity creates excellent acoustic and thermal properties giving it great BREEAM credentials, whilst being up to 30-40% lighter. And we undertake extensive testing to ensure optimal panel safety.

Cost Effective

Compared to traditional services, when considering fixing against time, labour, manufacture and structural requirements our complete system and service will offer you substantial savings in time and money whilst being a stress free solution.

The Cristofoli Process

A one stop shop of design through to installation

Cristofoli-Process

Our in-house design team understands your design brief and offers a technical solution complete with: advice on material selection, estimated build time and any other required parameters.
With your approval for design, our international sourcing team locates your material and purchases natural stone blocks.
Using our Italian based factory we gangsaw quarried blocks into usable thin slabs to bond to honeycomb.
These thin slabs are then chemically bonded to honeycomb to create a superior finished product.
Using in-house CnC and Waterjet technology we profile honeycombed slabs to our approved technical drawings. Any further assembly such as corner pieces are completed in-house.
For added security we install a hidden mechanical fixing into the stone, combined with the chemical bond to ensure lifelong strength. Finished parts are packaged and sent to your site.
In tandem with our materials processing we install a lightweight aluminium frame to your appropriate walling feature (Steel Sub frame, Plywood Structure, Existing Wall) to secure the cladding to.
We simultaneously deliver parts to site as sub-frame is completed. Panels are mounted and secured in place and once the final installation is approved we clean and clear site as if we were never there!
