General-purpose mortar for pointing and building stone, block and brick. Available coarse and fine.

Hydraulic limes are available as NHL 2 (Feeble), NHL 3.5 (Moderate) and NHL 5 (Eminent) and are able to set without exposure to air, making them suitable for use in wet environments such as foundations, paving and general building works. Components available individually or pre-mixed.

(NHL2, NHL3.5, NHL5) these are used in conjunction with selected sands to make a hydraulic mortar that requires no cement.

Our Weighbridge

Weighbridges are at the heart of many construction projects. We have a weighbridge specifically for our customers, with accuracy from 10kg to 30 tonnes. This service is not just available for customers buying our products – for a £10 charge you can have your vehicle weighed at any time.

  1. The loading plate

    Slowly position your vehicle centrally on the loading plate and the operator will give you a thumbs up and instruction on where to go when weighing is complete.

  2. Fill her up

    Following the operator’s instructions, drive over to have your vehicle loaded and wait until completion before driving back to the weighbridge.

  3. Tickets please!

    Once back on the weighbridge, exit your vehicle and step up to the window. Tell the operator what you’re purchasing and they will print you out a ticket and give any further instructions – finally taking payment (if required).

  4. Retreat!

    Once finished, simply return to your vehicle and you’re ready to start building…
