Moulding

Moulding

Moulding of stone can be either very simple in terms of a rounded arise to complex cornice and string course units. These are generally produced by the manufacture of a plastic template which can be made from either an existing stone or a drawing.

The stones are then cut to the required dimensions and dressed by hand. This process can generate a substantial amount of dust and strict controls and protective equipment must be worn whilst working with the stone. We employ modern water walls to absorb the dust and our operatives use positive pressure full face masks whilst working in the dusty environment.
