Copes, Pier Caps & Spheres

Our copes are produced in six basic section types of various widths and in standard lengths of 890mm or in non-standard lengths not exceeding 890mm. Finished open ends, finished returned ends and 90° external and internal masons mitres are all available.
Our pier caps are produced in five designs, each with a standard height and various widths to suit various pier sizes. Two of the designs are specifically used in conjunction with our standard cast stone spheres.


All wall heads should have a D.P.C. located beneath the copes and pier caps. If required, copes can be produced with dowel pockets in the ends or bottoms. Copes and pier caps should have a minimum projection of 40mm from the line of the finished walls below as they are produced with a 12mm diameter half round weather drip (throating) positioned 15mm in from each side.
