Split has a slightly uneven finish to its face which looks similar to rough hewn stone. It's often preferred to brick due to the range of course heights and lengths. It can be laid in either a coursed pattern or to create a more authentic appearance use two or more course height blocks.

Pitched is similar to naturally quarried and dressed stone. It has a rough raised profile that produces the subtle, authentic rugged appearance of traditional tooled stone found in many Limestone and Sandstone areas. It is available in a range of block heights, lengths and colours and is found in many rural and urban areas.

Tumbled stone has a rough irregular shape and finish that replicates old weathered stone. It is especially popular in rural areas such as the Cotswolds and the South West. It is an authentic cost effective alternative to natural stone that is readily accepted and approved by local planning authorities and conservationists.

Technical Data

Composition

 

All products are manufactured from accurately controlled proportions of milled limestone, cement and pigments. The
products are manufactured from natural materials and may be subject to slight colour variations. It is therefore
recommended that users work from 3-4 packs to achieve optimum colour blending.

Weathering

 

Many factors influence weathering characteristics, such as location, degree of exposure, prevailing weather conditions
and design. Bekstone Walling will weather in a similar manner to natural stone. Bekstone will not be held responsible
for the apparent colour fading or any other effect on the appearance of the stone due to efflorescence. This is a temporary phenomenon characteristic of all high cement content products which will reduce over a period of time.

Water absorption

 

As with all facing masonry (reconstituted stone, bricks and natural stone) the external envelope is not totally impervious
to heavy driving rain as there is the possibility that water penetration will take place through mortar joints. To avoid this
good building and site practice should be observed. Tests carried out gave a mean average of less than 10% absorption by weight after 24 hours.

Movement

 

Consideration must be given to the inclusion of movement joints. These should be installed wherever there are changes in height, wall thickness and not greater than 6 metre centres of continuous walling. Bed reinforcement should be included above and below openings extending at least 600mm either side of the opening.

Mortar

 

We strongly recommend the use of mortars containing lime because their lower permeability gives greater resistance to rain penetration.

Cement: Lime: Sand = 1 : 1 : 6

Masonry Cement: Sand = 1 : 4

Plasticised Cement: Sand = 1 : 5
