Cast Stone:

Forticrete’s range of Cast Stone is a perfect example of advanced technology and time honoured craftsmanship working together in perfect harmony. The result is a wide range of Cast Stone products using a semi-dry or wet format, of unparalleled quality with no compromise to aesthetic appeal.

This measure of craftsmanship ensures that each product has an authentic appearance and the sophistication of the manufacturing processes creates a product with all the weathering characteristics, durability and structural integrity of natural stone. Together they make an affordable alternative to natural stone dressings.

Walling Stone:

The Forticrete Anstone and Shearstone Ranges offer a choice of the three most popular types of natural stone finish:

  • Split – the most popular type of finish for housing and landscaping projects throughout Britain
  • Pitched – a rough effect, in which each block has a distinctive raised centre, is typical of quarry dressed stone
  • Cottage – a rough, irregular shape which replicates stone traditionally walled in its natural quarried state.

When these options are combined with carefully selected colour ranges, Anstone and Shearstone give you the ability to match the regional vernaculars throughout the UK.

Further Technicla information is available on the Forticrete Website or via the BPi download Library.

Forticrete launches decorative range of Cock and Hen Capping Stones

August 2019

Forticrete, the UK's leading manufacturer of concrete construction products, has launched a new range of Cock and Hen Capping Stones. Typically used in areas of natural beauty such as the Cotswolds, Cock and Hen Capping Stones are pieces of rough-hewn stone which are placed at right angles on the top of stone walling to enhance weather resistance.


John Lambert, General Manager at Forticrete commented: "The benefits of our new range of Cock and Hen Capping Stones are two-fold. First and foremost, they perform a vital protective role in preventing rainfall penetration. However, available in a selection of natural colours and finishes to suit regional preferences, the range helps to satisfy local planning authorities' desire for new homes in areas of natural beauty to look attractive, blend with the surrounding area and help shape desirable communities where people want to live."


Forticrete's range of Cock and Hen Capping Stones are available in its Shearstone Walling Premier and Standard colour ranges, specifically designed to complement many of the natural stone walls in southern Britain. The Light Ham of Somerset and the Buff of the Cotswolds are just two examples of stone types admirably mirrored in the Shearstone range. While Pentstone was created to match the local Grey Multi stone of Bristol and South Wales.

New user-friendly website for Forticrete

September 2018

Forticrete, the leading manufacturer of concrete roof tiles, architectural masonry, walling and cast stone, has launched a new website to provide customers with an enhanced online experience.

The website is more user-friendly and provides customers with easy access to information and case studies about its extensive range of concrete construction products. It also benefits from a ‘Roofing Product Selector’ which allows customers to select the right roof tiles depending on the criteria of the project.

John Lovatt, Market Manager at Forticrete, comments: “We are excited to launch Forticrete’s new website. Our aim was to make it easier for contractors, specifiers and architects to make an informed product choice by providing them with access to information and technical expertise in an easy to use format.”

Established in 1921, Forticrete has pioneered the development of aesthetic concrete products, including the innovative SL8 roof tile. Forticrete products are highly sustainable offering precision engineered and attractive alternatives to traditional building materials.
