Can Cast Stone items be cut or drilled in site?

Can Cast Stone items be cut or drilled in site?

We would advise not to cut Cast Stone items over 600mm long as they will have one or more steel bars inserted for handling purposes.  There is a risk that any cutting or drilling may result in the drill piece or blade making contact with the steel bar and shattering not only the cutting blade but the unit as well. Forticrete can incorporate any holes or dowels at the manufacturing stage. Prior consultation should be sought with the Technical department regarding this.
