What are coping stones?
A coping stone is the piece of stone used to cap or cover the top of a wall, protecting the brickwork and wall structure below from the weather by channelling water and providing a sleek and consistent finish. Coping stones are available in a range of standard designs such as flat, weathered and curved and can be used alongside pier caps to enhance to appearance of a wall. Copings help to define features such as archways and pair beautifully with other cast stone components.
First found in the Roman era and used across several historic and prestigious buildings such as the Gothic architecture of Oxford University, coping stones can be used to provide a traditional finish to blend harmoniously with existing buildings. However, due to the range of profiles and sizes available, copings can also be incorporated into more contemporary designs. Coping stones are available in semi-dry, wet cast or GRC material types.
