Marshalls cast stone columns, entablatures and balustrading

Cast Stone

You'll find the whole range of Grecon cast stone products here, under the new name of Marshalls Bricks and Masonry.

Synonymous with reconstituted stone, Marshalls cast stone is used to form openings, entrances, walling and other features in the masonry fa├žade. It fits in with both contemporary and period styles and complements a range of cladding materials from stone and brick to render. All types of cast stone units are offered in a simple, versatile and cost effective solution package. Products range from cills, heads, window and door surrounds, columns and porticos, to ballustrading, wall copings, pier caps and ashlar block and quoin masonry.

Colours
Our range of cast stone products have found favour with both designers and end users alike, as a high quality facing material which looks good and performs well at a realistic cost. This special form of concrete calls for skill, care and the application of technology when making our products. The colour and texture of most stones can now be matched using crushed rock fines and/or carefully selected and graded natural sands, usually mixed with white cement.

As manufacturers of less costly alternatives to quarried stone, we use natural mineral aggregates with a cementitious binder to achieve a similar shade to the quarried stone which we are matching. The semi-dry process sometimes uses colour fast pigments to change the colour of the aggregates, and offers a range of colour options not available in quarried stone.

Finishes
A choice of surface finishing techniques can be used during the cast stone process to achieve a variety of surface finishes to our products. The colour and texture of the cast stone face will need to be established prior to ordering, particularly where very smooth surfaces are being considered, as the type of finish will significantly influence the overall appearance. Unless otherwise specified, our standard surface finish exhibits a texture similar to quarried stone.

Simulated Tooled Finished
Highly detailed designs can be achieved by taking mould plates from natural stone masters. The semi-dry process also allows a limited amount of post production reworking using traditional tools and methods.
