Quoin stones help make structures and buildings look beautiful but is this their only purpose? In this blog post we’ll look deeper at quoin stones.
Quoin stones are masonry blocks used at the corner of a wall. They can be built into walls constructed of bricks, cast stone ashlars or a rendered wall. Using cast stone quoins will accentuate the corners giving an impression of strength and make your building more distinctive. We recommend using cast stone quoins as a great way of framing a building, whilst adding extra detail.
Cast Stone Quoin Stones are available in different formats. At Click Cast Stone we stock our popular plain 90-degree quoin stone types Q2 (330/215 x 100 x 215) and Q5 Quoins (440/215 x 100 x 215) in Bath colour.
Structural quoin stones provide additional strength to a building’s structure but are also available as a non-structural product. These are what we supply at Click Cast Stone, purely for aesthetic purposes, but also offering some protection against the weather elements.
At Click Cast Stone we also supply a range of cast stone decorative heads, string course and wall plinths which work well with quoins. If you have a bespoke product such as chamfered quoins, or wish to talk about your upcoming project in more detail, please contact one of our technical advisors.
