The processing areas where they are mainly used are the top of the walls where a both cosmetic and functional cover is required. When the copings cover the top of pillars instead, they are called hats. Copings are divided into: Natural quarry face copings: with split coasts and thickness which are divided into three categories. From 3 to 4 cm, 4 to 5 cm and from 5 to 6 cm. In regards to the length it is always to run except for orders with maximum length of one meter. There is also a version with natural quarry surface and thickness ranging from 3 to 6 cm.
