TS100 WALL CLADDING SYSTEMS - WITH THIN REINFORCED GRANITE FASCIA PANELS

(Note to specifier: The TS100 Wall System more closely resembles a generic wall panel than it does a traditional stone panel and is usually installed by different tradesmen - carpenters, glaziers, ironworkers. This specification could be included in Section 07400 as Stone Veneer Wall Panel).

The stone fascia panel shall be attached to the aluminum frame by structural silicone and, where required, by a mechanical self-locking expansion type insert placed in holes drilled on the backside of the stone fascia panel. The aluminum frames are securely connected to the substructure by interlocking clips which allow sufficient slip movement to compensate for stresses such as thermal differentials and high wind loads.

PERFORMANCE:  The wall panel system shall be designed to withstand positive and negative wind loads as required by applicable building codes using a factor of safety of 2 when tested in accordance with ASTM 330 procedure. Air infiltration shall meet requirements of ASTM 283. Water penetration shall meet requirements of ASTM 331. When tested in accordance with ASTM E84 the wall veneer panel shall exhibit the following characteristics:
Flame Spread---------0
Smoke Developed----0
When tested for resistance to delamination by the ASTM 297 procedure the stone veneer panel shall display a flatwise tensile strength of not less than 550 psi.

MATERIALS:  The stone fascia panel shall be a thin sheet of natural stone 3/8" thick which is reinforced by nettings of high strength glass fiber bonded to the stone by epoxy in a vacuum induced impregnation process. The natural stone facing panel shall be as selected by the Architect. The complete TS100 Wall Panel System shall be supplied by Thin Stone Systems, LLC  of  23-0 Commerce Road,  Fairfield, NJ  07004 - Tel. 973-882-7377.
