Pre-assembled porcelain stone façade returns

If the return leg is 150mm or less, we can provide pre-assembled returns for porcelain stone façade panels, which are bracketed to face panels.

You can select from mitred bird’s beak porcelain stone façade edges, or open-joint square edges with full pre-assembly. Both options avoid any need for a secondary support grid to carry the return leg. This saves time on site, while delivering ISO 9001-certified consistency, and achieves the porcelain stone façade aesthetic you want.

Porcelain stone column façade details

We use bracketed and bonded returns to create single piece column or beam units for porcelain stone facades, consisting of two or three panels.

“Invisibly” bonded returns

We can “Invisibly” bond bracketed returns where these are suitable, giving the impression of a single piece unit. These mechanically fixed bonded returns are created using a colour-matched adhesive and are dressed to produce an “invisible” match to the porcelain stone material used.

Porcelain stone bird’s beak / mitred edge façade details

We provide bird’s beak mitred edges to form a traditional external corner detail. We can do this thanks to our precision cutting capabilities, and can also provide an array of other mitring options.

Porcelain stone butt corner façade details

Butt corner joints - where the edge of one panel is visible in front of the other – is another option for our porcelain stone façades. Providing an alternative to a bird’s beak mitred edge, these details can be polished / sandblasted where required, to co-ordinate with any polished /sandblasted porcelain stone material used.

Architectural Details

If your project includes bespoke third party architectural details, we will always try to accommodate and assist with such detailing.

For example, if signage needs to be added to the completed façade, we can drill fixing apertures into the porcelain stone façade panels at the correct locations.

Porcelain stone louvre, brise soleil and vent façade details

Our porcelain stone façade detailing capabilities include louvres and brises soleil. With our waterjet cutting technology, we can also cut out specialist shapes or vent details for porcelain stone facades.

Porcelain stone etched and engraved façade panels

At Shackerley, we can provide porcelain stone façade panels with branding and logos within the panel face, thanks to our etching and engraving expertise. This can be done on either a single cladding panel or across multiple panels. Offering precision accuracy for all your etching and engraving requirements, we can offer you the option of leaving these details as the core porcelain stone façade panel colour, or choosing to have them gilded in any RAL colour.

Unitized porcelain stone façade modules

Unitized façade systems are a preferred method of installation for larger city centre projects and, thanks to our manufacturing capabilities, we can provide unitized porcelain stone façade modules as installation-ready, pre-fabricated units. Our porcelain stone unitized modules are typically mounted on aluminium frames, including both front façade panels and side returns.
