Quoins
Application

Used for both structural and visual purposes, quoins are a way to frame a building, adding another layer of detail that contrasts the brickwork. Manufactured to the highest quality, they are suitable for new build projects, extensions and renovations.

Description

Cast stone quoins available in standard designs to suit most applications. Custom-made designs available on request.

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.

- TecLite (fibre-reinforced):

TecLite is a high quality GFRC (Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete). Although it closely resembles cast stone in appearance, the use of thin wall construction means the component weight is significantly reduced when compared with similar Haddonstone and TecStone pieces. Its high strength to weight ratio makes TecLite suitable for retro-fit, renovation and timber frame build projects.

- 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.

Applications:

Used for both structural and visual purposes, quoins are a way to frame a building, adding another layer of detail that contrasts the brickwork. Manufactured to the highest quality, they are suitable for new build projects, extensions and renovations.
