Regency Ashlar & Quoins

Regency Ashlar & Quoins

Throughout Britain there are magnificent and historic buildings which feature Ashlar walling in a variety of stones - ranging from the white limestone of York to honey coloured walls of Bath and the reddish hues of sandstone that make Chester so distinctive.

With Regency Ashlar you can recreate this tradition, whether you are building entirely in stone or adding an elegant architectural feature to a mainly brick structure.

Some of benefits include: standard range of sizes, bespoke sizes available on request, standard range of 6 colours, bespoke colours available on request and all our products are manufactured from high grade aggregate.

Forticrete's Cast Stone Regency Textured Ashlar Blocks have been developed to replicate a natural Ashlar Stone with a decorative treatment consisting of small grooves, better known as 'Mason's Drag'.

All Forticrete products are CE marked where appropriate.

Our Regency Ashlar Blocks and Quoins are available in a wide range of sizes  to suit your project requirements.  All Quoins are externally faced.

Please specify if internally faced quoins are required as an alternative. Some quoin units are handed. When ordering please specify the hand required.

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.

How far apart should control joints be in Cast Stone Ashlar Blocks?

As a general guide movement control joints should be no further apart than at 6m centres.
