Rubble stone is a traditional building material used in industrial and residential construction. Strong load-bearing structures are built from it, decorative elements and forms are created. Due to its high strength and good performance characteristics, quarrystone is often used in the construction of new buildings.
What is rubble stone
Rubble stone is a natural building material obtained by mining the rock. It is obtained by undermining dolomites, limestones, granites and other minerals.
Types of rubble stone
Booth is a natural material of three types:
Industrial bottle. Stones for the construction of bridges, flyovers, other engineering structures. But due to the original appearance, it is also actively used in landscape design. Industrial-type building materials are mined mechanically. The rock is drilled, blasted and crushed using special machines. Further, the stones are sorted depending on the size, the shapes suitable for construction are selected.
Decorative bottle. Decorative stone is flat stones used for facades, architectural forms, plinths, fences, paths and the like. The material is used in landscape design. For decorative purposes, three types of rubble are used: slate; quartzite; marble. Developers use it to decorate buildings and in the arrangement of the surrounding area.
Masonry bottle. The main rubble stone, which is used in housing construction, is masonry rubble. It represents processed stones of the correct form – made in the form of parallelepipeds. This stone is mined by hand, because high demands are made on its size and shape.
Basically, the stone is obtained from limestones and sandstones of common rocks. Sometimes masonry rubble is mined from granites, quartzites and slates. Stones of the correct form are suitable for the construction of walls, foundations, plinths. It is also used in the construction of architectural forms in landscape design. Due to the execution in the form of a parallelepiped, the construction technology from such rubble is very similar to brickwork, but more difficult than it.
