                  the UK.  At Haddonstone we encourage
                  independent installers to fully understand
                  our products and how best they can be
                  installed.  A member of the Independent

                  In 1991, Haddonstone was a founder member of the United Kingdom
                  Cast Stone Association (UKCSA). The Association defines strict levels   POINTING MIX
