Flint Blocks Suppliers
Flint Blocks Suppliers
As a trusted flint supplier, All Brick & Stone are often asked about quality flint blocks, and, as you might expect, we’ve been involved in a few projects that use them in our time!
As an experienced flint supplier, we’d recommend a gauged mix for consistency. The mortar is then pressed into the spaces between the flints, and is left slightly proud until it starts to go off. Any large gaps are filled with separately supplied galleting flint.
A Professional Supplier of Robust Flint Walls
For a great quality flint supplier, choose All Brick & Stone. We take great pride in our work, so once the pointing starts to change colour during the process to construct flint walls, the “cutting in” begins. The bricklayer carefully cuts around each flint with a pointing knife to produce the desired effect, although this can vary from site to site. Once completed, the wall area is brushed with a stiff brush to remove any mortar from the flint faces.
This section shows the three stages of pointing that are needed to obtain the desired effect. The joints can be clearly seen until the section has been completely pointed; thereafter, they disappear.
The finished flint walling product is quite impressive, to say the least.
This panel is our sample for on-site use to exhibit its purpose in a cavity wall situation. Viewing on site expels any fears operatives may have about the use of the Dorset Flintblock, and also demonstrates our reveal block, which goes on to eliminate the need for brick or stone quoins. Simply put, our pride and dedication to being a trusted flint supplier means we couldn’t take any more care or be any more professional than we are.
All ‘Our stone manufactures’ ’products are cast in timber, resin or steel moulds. All moulds being constructed to a high degree of accuracy from workshop drawings produced inhouse using the latest CAD facilities.
Our stone manufactures own skilled mould makers produce most of the moulds required. All components are made using the ‘Semi Dry’process, this enables each item to be immediately demoulded and hand finished. Initial curing is then carried out in a controlled environment before being packed.
Many individual designs are inspired by classical architecture or more decorative styles. These unusual sizes, intricate or irregular shapes and special colours can, in most cases, be made to suit your particular project. Our stone manufactures design department will liaise with your ‘Designer’ or ‘Architect’ to create purpose-made products to your specifications.
All components are carefully hand packed on to timber pallets; each layer of products is separated using timber laths wrapped in non – staining impact foam with individual products being separated by polystyrene spacers. Each window component is individually marked toidentify its build position. The pallet is then shrunk –wrapped to ensure that each component is secured within a taut and stable pack. Each pallet will be accompanied with a consignment note to identify the components within the pallet and its destination/ plotnumber. Each pallet is then carefully moved to ourstorage area where it is kept until it is required for delivery to site.
The curing period for cast stone is generally 14 days – deliveries or collections inside this period are not recommended but can be facilitated providing the customer carries the responsibility for any subsequent damage or failure.
