I would like to receive updates about products and services, special offers, news and events from Forticrete:

Are fixings provided for Cast Stone products?

Some Forticrete dressings will incorporate 100mm dovetail slots to restrain lateral movement in vertical units i.e. window jambs, door jambs, etc. All Forticrete copings are supplied with a suitable fixing. Other positional fixings may be provided in items such as window surrounds. Other inserts or anchor slots can be incorporated at the request of the specifier/designer.

Can Cast Stone items be cut or drilled in site?

We would advise not to cut Cast Stone items over 600mm long as they will have one or more steel bars inserted for handling purposes. There is a risk that any cutting or drilling may result in the drill piece or blade making contact with the steel bar and shattering not only the cutting blade but the unit as well. Forticrete can incorporate any holes or dowels at the manufacturing stage. Prior consultation should be sought with the Technical department regarding this.

Can Cast Stone items be repaired?

Yes, but this depends on the size of repair. For small chips up to 25mm in diameter, it is possible to repair these, although it is always likely to be visible. A bag of repair mix can be obtained by speaking to the Customer Services office. We also provide a Technical Information Sheet outlining the process for conducting the repair.

I do not see a Cast Stone item that meets my requirements?
