Seminar
The difference between handset and rainscreen in the use of natural stone in building
This CPD will cover the two main applications of natural stone in vertical builds, one, traditional handset (also known as “ashlar”), where the stone pieces are held back by fixings and applied in courses, or: 2) rainscreen, where the stone is positioned on a metal railing system. The design choices for anchoring can be determined by the style and use of the building, as well as budget and timeframe. The main aim of the CPD is to describe the features of both while also helping delegates to determine a decision making process as to which of the two applications best suits a particular project. The wider learning aims are:
- To understand the basic difference between handset and rainscreen
- To be introduced to different anchoring methods for stone and size parameters
- To have references for British Standards
- To have building examples of both methods
- Brief introduction to main stone types
