Typical construction layouts
Shown here is a layers of Petite Bordeaux Capping using all the pieces per layer. This layout is typical of what is required to build a wall in the stretcher bond configuration.
Circles and curves
The Petite Bordeaux Capping design makes it easy to construct a variety of curves. The minimum radius that can be built using the random pattern of units without cutting or using disproportionate amount of the smaller units is 1.8m. To build smaller radii use a larger proportion of smaller units, some cutting may be required.
90 Degree corners
Corners can be created with ease when using Petite Bordeaux Capping. The units are capable of being used in a 90-degree corner due to having textured faces with 90 degree angles (with the exception of unit D, which has only two sides textured).
Large units should be used at corners to achieve greater strength through overlap and interlock with units above and below.
