Description

Cast stone pier caps available in various designs in a range of sizes. Bespoke designs also available, consult manufacturer for details.

Material:

- Haddonstone (Semi-dry cast limestone):

High quality semi-dry cast stone, consisting of over 50% limestone aggregate. With a surface texture similar to Portland Stone, Haddonstone is regularly used alongside or as an alternative to natural stone.

- TecStone (wet cast limestone):

High quality wet cast stone, comprising over 60% natural limestone aggregate. Denser than the Haddonstone material, TecStone is acid etched as standard to provide an attractive appearance similar to a finished natural stone. Designed to meet demanding performance criteria and can incorporate structural reinforcement and cast-in fixings. TecStone is the preferred material for architectural projects where structural performance is required.

Features and benefits:

  • Available in a range of colours.
  • Available in a large standard range of designs.
