Many banding applications are wide, sometimes more than a foot across. Using multiple profiles makes the individual pieces lighter and easier to install. Several profiles are often stacked together as a single course, (a set of profiles installed together as a single band) Two identical profiles are often used that way, one reversed.
The watertable uses two profiles, and serves as a window sill when under a window.

Here the profile forms the top of the watertable with the stucco below. The profile runs under the window sill here. This corner uses a outside cope to eliminate the need for fragile miter cuts. The photo above uses an inside cope for each profile.
This watertable has a cast stone band running across the top, with stone blocks below.
These are preselected families of profiles we often produce for watertables, there are many other options. The same profiles can even be used in other configurations, varying the setting line, and the materials surrounding the stone.
