Gridworx Installation Information


Gridworx is a revolutionary mechanical stone hanging system that combines patent-pending wall anchors to support kerf-cut thin stone.
The end result produces the natural beauty of stone at a fraction of the cost of full bed masonry stone walls.
The system is pre-engineered for use with wood frame, steel stud, CMU block or concrete walls.
Gridworx vastly simplifies the installation process.

  • KERFED DIMENSION STONE - Natural Stone
    The original patented Gridworx system, designed to provide continuous panel support via saw kerfs cut into the top and bottom edge of the cladding. The L-bracket engagement method allows for non-sequential panel installation and the removal of damaged or discolored panels.
  • MECHANICAL KERF SYSTEM - Multipurpose
    A patented Gridworx system, the mechanical kerf channel interlocks with the back face of cladding via an undercut anchor. This connection between the mechanical kerf and stone provides superior load carrying capacity and adjustability.
  • GRIDPLANX - Ultra-Compact Surface (UCS)
    The patented GridPlanx system is designed to provide continuous panel support via a 3mm kerf cut continuously along the top and bottom edge of the cladding panel. The black anodized Gridworx saddle locks into the 3mm kerf and is mechanically adhered to the back face of the panel, creating a modern aesthetic.
  • ULTRA - Large Format Ultra-Compact Surface (UCS)
    The Gridworx ULTRA system allows for the efficient installation of large format ultra-compact surface panels. Continuous rail anchors are fastened to the back face of panel in parallel rows, via an undercut anchor.
  • SS

Keep it clean

- simple line of text

Keeping your work area neat and orderly matters a lot: studies have reaffirmed the fact that if your place of work is cluttered, information-processing becomes difficult, let alone focusing on priorities, tasks, and projects. Other than reduction in productivity, an office that is messy will also negatively impact your emotional, professional, and psychological well-being: however, the silver lining is that clean-up of your workspace is a low-cost, high-impact activity that has perceptible and immediate benefits for both the workers and the business owners alike.

  • What the smallest space between stone interior surface and mounting surface of - For direct anchor attachment to a substrate (steel, concrete, wood framing, etc) with our saw kerf anchor system, the “standard” depth for 30mm cladding is 2 1/2".

    There are other variables that can be considered to tighten the wall cavity, but if you can get away with 2 1/2" I would lean that direction.

    As for radial walls, there are multiple factors involved when anchoring stone cladding on a radius.

    • Radius size
    • Panel size
    • Running Bond or Stacked Bond pattern

    I would consider any radius tighter than 90’ as “atypical”, as in our engineer would have to confirm that the increased pull on the anchor fasteners is acceptable. Our anchors are extruded with 6005 aluminum, which includes a little copper in the alloy. This allows the anchors to flex around bends while retaining its shape and strength. Please feel free to give me a call to discuss some of these issues in greater detail.
