Rough Dressed walling is strongly reminiscent of roughly dressed quarried stone. A wide choice of block sizes and shades allows for regional variations in coursing styles and indigenous stone characteristics. Rationalised sizes are compatible with conventional cavity wall construction and every walling block has a profiled end. Accepted in appropriate conservation areas. Unique walling block design allows for consistent mortar joint, but when fully pointed the finished wall appears to have a more varied joint width. Selected shades also available in a mixed size walling project pack.

Masonry Block walling has been developed as a simple, economic and ingenious method of reproducing the appearance of traditional random rubble walling found in natural stone areas. With this walling, the coursing is not apparent with Masonry blocks cast in a unique ‘T’ shape with false joints, so that they appear to be made of individual stones. A single size infill block completes the system. Accepted in appropriate conservation areas and areas of outstanding natural beauty. Mortar joints and filled false joints create an effective random coursing pattern. Rationalised detailing and construction using only an interlocking ‘multi-stone’ block and infill block.
Tooled walling is the original Bradstone walling finish. It was developed to reproduce the look of chiselled stone featuring vertical tool marks.

Tooled walling can also be striking as a string or plinth course with other claddings. Reminiscent of sawn Bath stone perfect for matching across South West England. Often used in contemporary new builds across the UK. Produced in moulds originated from natural stone masters for a high quality aesthetic detail.
Traditional walling has a squared and lightly dressed finish and is specified as an alternative to natural stone masonry.
