MANUFACTURING TOLERANCES:

The manufacturing tolerance on the thickness and face dimensions of stones is set out in BS 8298 Part 1: 2000 section 7.2 and conforms to the European Standard BSEN 1469.

Many stones will fall into the category of >50mm thick and length or width 600mm) will be within the +- 3mm tolerance and in the majority of cases will allow for +- 1.5mm on the joints for site installation.

On several projects the design team have required exceptional tolerances (eg +- 1mm). The only reliable way of delivering these tolerances is through checking a very large sample of the finished stones using electronic calipers.
