Commercial Concrete Masonry Products
Decro Face is a unique process that adds texture and character to smooth concrete masonry units, but the benefits of Decro Face go far beyond a simple texture and character change. The Decro Face process is an excellent choice when a contrasting accent band or a smooth surface for mounting items such as light fixtures or signs is desired. The finish of units provides a slightly weathered appearance, the degree of which can be controlled and adjusted to suit specifications.
Ground Face Block are produced using Standard CMU shapes and sizes, so virtually any smooth block shape or size can be a Ground Face unit. Grinding block in our Multi-Head Grinder removes approximately 1/16" off the surface, exposing the color and aggregate in the concrete matrix. Many standard mix designs are available. You can use our on line color chart for preliminary color selection, but please contact us for a sample kit or full size samples. Custom Mix Designs are also available. Contact us early in design to allow for sufficient time to create the color that you desire.
Split Face Concrete Masonry Units are produced on block machines, two at a time and then cured in large kilns. The units are split apart when they are removed from the kiln. The surface of the split face unit is fairly consistent with each unit having a somewhat unique appearance. Color choices are almost unlimited. Earth tone colors such as gray, tan, brown, red and salmon are produced using gray cement, local aggregates and pigments. We can also produce units with white cement and/or aggregates and pigments. We show a variety of colors on the color chart, but we can adjust mix designs to try and meet your needs if none of these colors satisfy project requirements. Because of the irregular surface of Split Face block, we recommend that you consider using a smooth surfaced unit such as Decro Face or SpecBrik at the tops of walls. In locations where roof coping metal is designed to be placed over the face of the masonry, a smooth unit can provide better resistance to wind driven rain entry.
