Cast Stone Coping

Ashlar Facing Anchors

Ashlar Facing Anchors

Ashlar facing panels may be anchored to the structure in a variety of ways as shown below. The most simple anchor is the strap anchor shown below the coping in the upper left detail. The use of the J-bolt is shown in several applications.

This provides a positive connection and allows careful positioning of the stone by adjusting the nut on the threaded end. The J-bolt as a support for the soffit panel has been used quite successfully and is relatively easy to install.

When designing profiles for Cast Stone, keep in mind that cost is determined by the amount of repetition achievable from the mould.

So long as a sufficient quantity of stone is required, the complexity of the profile will have a minimal effect on the cost of Cast Stone per lineal foot.

Coping and Wall Cap Coping

Coping and Wall Cap Coping

The following details for roof coping and wall cap coping are typical coping details using a standard 1/2″ wash. Three different type anchors, bottom dowels, cramps and end dowels are detailed in both plan and section.

All straight copings are made 3′-11 3/4″ long (4′-0″ module) or 4′-11 5/8″ long (5′-0″ module) with end stones varying to fit the wall dimension – copings on curved walls are cast to a 3′-0″ module (2′-11 3/4″ long). This applies for both roof copings and wall cap coping.
