Gridworx Systems Details

The Gridworx cladding system is divided into four primary mounting configurations. Though each system is uniquely suited for it’s cladding material, they share many common components that can be utilized together to achieve a variety of unique architectural design aspects.

Gridworx is a Mechanically Attached Ventilated Backdrop Rainscreen Cladding System. Our systems can be utilized to achieve an open or closed joint aesthetic.
  • An Open Joint rainscreen safely moderates pressure differences by allowing outside air to enter the pressure equalization chamber (PEC) behind the face of cladding. Open ventilation allows water and condensation to freely escape and evaporate from within the wall cavity.
  • A Sealed Joint rainscreen is the traditional, straightforward strategy of rain control. Sealed joints form a watertight envelope around the building structure that significantly reduces water from entering the cavity. Weep holes within the Gridworx anchor and at the base of the wall allow excess moisture that penetrates the envelope to escape.
Common components that comprise the Gridworx cladding system includes:
  • Starter J Course Anchor (12ft) in length. Used at the base of floor lines and above windows and doors.
  • Intermediate T Anchor (12ft in Length). Used in the central field course.
  • Top Course J Anchor (12ft length). Used at the top panel course and below windows and other architectural features.
  • L-Brackets. The Gridworx proprietary method of engaging the panel with the anchor. Allows for the nonsequential removal and installation of panel. Available in 1/4", 3/8”, 1/2" and 3/4" joints.
  • Thermally broken adjustable girt system. Designed to house exterior installation and create an adjustable, thermally broken structural backup between the Gridworx anchor and the substrate

Kerfed Dimensioned 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.
This system pairs perfectly with any natural stone from our collection, cut to architectural specification and delivered to your jobsite.

Mechanical Kerf

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. The L-bracket engagement method allows for non-sequential panel installation and the removal of broken or discolored panels.

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. The GridPlanx product is available is panel heights up to 28” with lengths up to 126”. Over 40 colors are available.

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. These rails interlock with adjacent anchors attached to the substrate. Designed as a “floating mount system”, pitch bolts at the top channel allow for fast, pinpoint leveling.
