Indiana Limestone sills and surrounds are used like other masonry products to protect your home or building from rain and snow. Projects can range from flat sills tilted in the field to full surrounds where sills, jambs and headers encase the window opening. All pieces are cut to size to fit the window opening. Indiana Limestone headers can be cut to a radius to fit arched windows and doors. Indiana Limestone sills and surrounds are a complimentary accent to brick masonry. Besides from the architectural aesthetics, Indiana Limestone minimizes joint failure. The Indiana Limestone is cut to size and can be adjusted to work with coursing heights.
Slip Sill Flat: Smooth flat sill that can be tilted slightly in the field to allow for water to run away from the window or door. The sill fits in the masonry opening of the window
Slip Sill w/ Wash: The Indiana Limestone is machined with a slope to allow for water to run away from the window or door. The sill fits in the masonry opening of the window
Lug Sill w/ Wash: The Indiana Limestone is machined with a slope that runs the length of the masonry opening but has flat ends that extend past the masonry opening of the window or door
Drip: A continuous kerf cut in the bottom of the sill that acts as a break so that water drops down from that point.
Profile: Custom mold machined into the face of the sill.
Jambs: Indiana Limestone that runs vertically next to the window casing. Can be flat or profiled.
Header(Lintel): Indiana Limestone that runs horizontally above the window. Can be flat or have a profile. Indiana Limestone detail is to return the profile down to meet the jamb. We do not miter the header and jamb to meet.
Steel Check: There are occasions when the steel angle is placed below the Indiana Limestone header to carry the weight instead of being placed above the header. This is mostly in the case of a long span where it is impractical or cost prohibitive for the Indiana Limestone to supply in one piece. In this case a continuous relief can be machined across the bottom of the header to help hide the steel angle.
