The Purpose of Quoin Stones

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.

Cast Stone Quoin Stones

Quoin stones are large l-shaped blocks made from cast stone that are built into corners of walls. They can be used as a corner unit in an ashlar wall or to add stone detail to the corner of a brick wall. We recommend using cast stone quoins as a great way of framing a building whilst adding extra detail.

Quoin stones are available in different formats. As standard, our quoin stones come without a chamfer and are manufactured to be built-in to the corner of the building. Quoin cladding is another type of quoin available but these aren’t sold as stock by Click Cast Stone. If you have a bespoke product such as chamfered quoins or cladding quoin, please speak to one of our technical advisors who are waiting to help. All of our quoin stones are available in Bath colour.

Cast stone decorative heads, string course and wall plinths work great with quoins.

Are Quoin Stones Structural

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.
