BRUHN Limestone blocks are a naturally quarried product that is predominately used for house building and landscaping.
Blocks are Laid
Under normal circumstances, the blocks are laid identical to brick construction where the blocks are mortared together and then tied back to the stud frame. Expansion joints and weep holes are used as per the BCA which will be familiar to all good architects and builders. Double skin construction can be used as a building method as limestone can be load bearing.
General sizing of our ashlar blocks are 290x660x100 with each block weighing approx. 18 kilo so handling of the product by a stone mason or brickie on site is very manageable.
Decorative moulds come in various sizes and are used in plinths, window surrounds, wall bands and parapets etc and can offer your building the character and a touch of old-world class you may be looking for. In saying that if it’s a more modern – contemporary architecture you are considering our limestone with its dense composition and clean sharp lines offers a perfect finish.
Round and square columns are also available and are often used to make a statement in entrances or beautifully enhance an alfresco or entertaining area
Limestone Blocks – Natural Stone
The beauty of BRUHN Limestone is that it is all a natural product quarried in our own quarries in Mount Gambier SA although we do also distribute WA Tamala Limestone which offers another alternative to clients looking for variation in Australian Limestone products. We do get variation in colour and generally have a range of light creams to biscuit colours available to choose from.
