ACS are the UK’s market leader in the field of stone restraint and support.
Far from just offering a range of products, the company offers itself as a stone consultant assisting architects, engineers and contractors on the best practice in stone fixing.
The company’s in-house team of structural engineers, mechanical engineers and technicians have over two hundred years of combined experience in the field of stonework systems and fixings.
Our expertise is highly sought after, that much so that the company offers a range of CPD’s on the subject. These CPD’s can be booked via our Specification & Downloads page.
Many of the solutions we prove are therefore bespoke to our client’s needs. This area of our website offers a glimpse of our general solutions.
To enable a system to be fully designed the following information would be required:
– Type of structure (Concrete / steel)
– Cavity size (Face of structure to back of stone)
– Thickness of stone
– Type of stone (Natural / reconstituted)
– Height to be supported
– Typical section through at stone support location
To ensure grooves, cast in channels etc. are positioned correctly ACS recommend being appointed at the same time as the stone supplier.
