StoneLedge Pillars

Pillars add a finishing touch of elegance to any StoneLedge™ wall project. They can be used to create distinguished entrance ways to any residence or business and the unit’s hollow cores greatly simplify the placement of lighting in the pillars. This section provides simple instructions for the creation of multi-size pillars.

Step 1: Levelling Pad

  • Ensure that you have properly installed your base levelling pad. For a proper leveling pad concrete or Well Graded Gravel (also known as Road Base Aggregates) can be used
  • It must be a minimum of 8″ thick
  • Once completed, place and level the StoneLedge™ unit blocks as shown

Step 2: Additional Courses

  • Flip and turn the second course corner units upside down to create an overlapping bond
  • Place second course of the StoneLedge™
    corner units directly on top of the
    first course
  • Clear Crush Drain Gravel (Angular Aggregates free of fines) should be placed in
    the cores and middle of pillar
  • (concrete core filling optional) use a dry concrete mix to prevent leaching of cement
  • Concrete Adhesive should be applied to all units to ensure course to course interlock
