Mason (Mechanical Marble Fixer)

Mason (Mechanical Marble Fixer)
Mechanical marble fixing is a technique in which stone cladding materials are settled to the exterior of the working with the utilization of stainless steel points, sections and stays. Cladding Fixing System is mechanical altering gatherings for pre-assembled boards on structures. There are an excessive number of various cladding sorts: sand stones, marbles and limestones, rock, basalt, precast solid boards and different sorts.
