Masonry Fundamentals

 

 

         

 

Flexible and Attractive
 
Concrete masonry is available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colors and textures, offering unparalleled design flexibility.
Concrete masonry can be manufactured for specialty applications, whether it’s for noise reduction or swimming pools.
Because of masonry’s strength and durability, the need for a frame is eliminated, creating a degree of design freedom not available with other materials.
It’s an excellent surface on which to bond stucco or other finish materials. It’s easily integrated into the design of buildings that use other materials such as steel, glass, stone and brick.
Concrete masonry is also flexible through multiple uses – older buildings can be reused, either in their entirety or as recycled materials. Structures built with concrete masonry typically exceed the required strength for the design load, which makes reuse possible and creates a durable, lasting structure.

 

Modularity of Concrete Masonry Units enables effective building in tight spaces
along with modular design options.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Natural integral colors are created with iron oxide as a pigment combined
with aggregates.
