The style and design of an archway can vary significantly depending on its size and the building it is being matched to, however with careful planning and detailing a sandstone arch will fit together without any issues. The majority of arches are based around circles and are designed to distribute the weight above them evenly across the span.
Once you have chosen an arch style for your project Cumbrian Stone will require the following information to be able to start designing your arch for manufacture:
Span – The span of the arch is the width of the opening that the arch bridges across.
Rise – The rise of the arch is the maximum height that can be measured at the highest point of the arch.
Depth – The arch depth is the thickness of the arch stones from front to back.
Arch Stone Height – The arch stone height is the height of the individual stones that make up your arch.
