Steps and caps are practically the same thing except that steps only require one edge to be dressed but will often require a riser. BCA governs step height to 170mm so the riser heights given above cover that and we have calculated one 10mm mortar join.

Some helpful hints

  • Rock faced is the most popular edge because of its durability.
  • 20mm is a good benchmark for capping overhang.
  • Rock facing protrudes past the arris line about half the thickness of the stone..... (50mm stone equals roughly 25mm rock face).
  • Bull nosed also generally protrudes half the thickness of the stone but width measurements have always been calculated to the pinnacle of the nose.
  • Sawn edges are always supplied with a slight round (about a pencil) to remove the sharpness.
  • A rule of thumb is that if your wall is up to hip hight then 50mm is right. From hip to shoulder then you might start looking at 75mm and if its over your head then consider 100mm.
  • Any questions at all just give us a call.
