Inspiration with Thornton Sawn Stone
Examples of Thornton sawn Stone.
Thornton sawn stone is very versatile and can be cut to many designs. Wall top coping stones can be cut to size, length, ‘L shaped’ or mitred corners.
We cut all our stone with a waterjet or diamond stone saws to produce your requirements to exacting standards.
Bingley Stone regularly work alongside Designers, Architects and Homeowners to assist during the design process. Our in house CAD team can provide design assistance and supply working drawings to help bring design ideas to working conclusions. Our CAD files can then be passed to our production team where stone is cut using CNC controlled stone cutting saws to ensure complex designs fit together once on site.
Coping stones can sometimes be flat topped or sloping (known as ‘weathered’). Once weathered means sloped from one side to the other. Alternatively, twice weathered means sloping from a peak in the middle, down to each edge. Both can easily be produced.
Thornton stone can create beautifully designed steps. Being sawn to a regular thickness, usually 50mm or 40mm provides equalisation of thicknesses which is more often desired for step installations. The equal thickness lends itself well to either straight, bull nosed, or pencil rounded leading edges. Thornton stone also offers excellent slip resistance, which is important for step applications.
