String Course


String CourseKilleshal manufacture a variety of String Course styles. Architectural precast concrete and reconstituted granite string course, also known as “band course”, is a continuous perimeter moulding, built into the outer leaf masonry of a building. It projects slightly from the surface of the wall, sheds water outwards and features a water drip to prevent staining and mortar erosion.

Precast concrete string course is often used in Ireland to provide visual relief in large masonry panels or to demarcate between one outer leaf material and another. In Ireland, standard precast concrete string course can be painted, similar to window sills.

KPC’s standard precast concrete string course is usually dimensioned to tie in with one of our standard window sill profiles.Therefore the specification of string course is usually driven by your choice of window sill. We strongly advise contacting our experienced and knowledgeable technical team for guidance.

Through our sister company, we can offer more ornate profiles, in keeping with more classical styles, in a variety of reconstituted stone mixes and surface treatments. Further, we can modify any standard designs to suit your specific requirements – feel free to ask.

 KPC recommends referring to Eurocode 6 for masonry construction design guidance.

Our most popular design is our Type A String Course, which matches our Type A Window Sill. If this style does not suit your requirements, please contact through the form below. Killeshal staff are happy to help.
