Masonry Veneer Installation System Brochure


Up to now, the installation of manufactured stone masonry veneer has often depended on the use of site-mixed unfortified masonry mortars that are subject to large variations in consistency, quality and performance and which also limit the installation technique to that of traditional masonry. This traditional method is not engineered as part of a complete wall system and therefore does not offer warranties from a reliable source willing to stand behind the installation.

The Masonry Veneer Installation System brochure provides information on LATICRETE installation systems that provide permanent, high strength installations that are freeze/thaw stable and protected from water intrusion. The Masonry Veneer Installation System (MVIS™) allows for increased productivity utilising either traditional masonry installation techniques or the “tiler’s method”. Vastly expanded architectural details are offered to help design professionals, contractors and installers understand the range of possible applications – and appropriate products and techniques which will assure long-term performance on projects of all types.
