generix offers a range of natural stone façade finishes which comprises two types, generix lite and generix plus.

generix lite is a cost effective solution which uses a 20mm natural stone panel with a 90 degree horizontal kerf. The panels are secured to the generix lite vertical rail using the patented one piece four way stainless steel clip attached by Tekscrews. Neoprene strip facilitates wind rattle and assists impact resistance.

generix plus is completely unique system which can support up to a 40mm thick natural stone panel. The horizontal edges of the panels can be manufactured at either 90 or 45 degrees. This permits the use of an open horizontal joint, which is more effective than a closed joint system for air and thermal movement. The panels are secured to the generix vertical rail using the patented two piece stainless steel clip by using the generix bending tool and also benefits from a neoprene strip.

Key features of generix:

  • Fast track construction technique
  • Universal substructure arrangement
  • Varied panel options
