Forticrete are a respected leader in the field of Architectural Masonry, Cast Stone, Walling Stone and a recognised Innovator in concrete roofing products and retaining wall systems.
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.
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
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.
