                  With its inherent strength, Haddonstone can be used in structural
                  situations. However, the usual practice is to use Haddonstone purely
                  as a decorative façade supported, where necessary, by reinforced
                  concrete or structural steelwork. This task, whilst not difficult, should be
                  carried out only under the supervision of an architect or a structural
                  engineer. If you intend to use the products structurally, let
                  Haddonstone know when you place your order, giving as much
                  detail as possible. You can then be advised on any ways in which
                  Haddonstone can simplify this work, saving you time and money.

                  Working in conjunction with your project architect and structural
                  engineer, the company can manufacture TecStone components as
                  structural units by incorporating reinforcement.

                  Where possible, Haddonstone is supplied in component form to ease
                  site handling. Consideration should be given to the weight of individual
                  components when deciding on lifting and handling procedures, with
                  due regard to the relevant regulations. Haddonstone’s website contains
                  Technical Sheets and Assembly Advice which provide specific detailed
                  information. We also recommend reference to Eurocode 6 and
                  PD 6697: 2010.
