Architectural Masonry is the evolvement of standard gray concrete masonry blocks into aesthetically pleasing concrete masonry units (CMUs). These masonry blocks can be used as a stand alone or in conjunction with other masonry materials. Our architectural bricks are combined with an integral water repellant and come in a variety of colors and texture finishes. Explore Oldcastle bricks and standard masonry options from Echelon.

Redline blended lightweight masonry is a successful time-tested product which is identified by a visible red stripe running vertically on the end of the block. This distinctive feature allows quick confirmation that the product being used in the wall is indeed the fire-rated product specified. Redline has an average weight of 28 pounds per 8x8x16 unit. It combines the insulation and productivity advantages of lightweight concrete with the strength of standard masonry units. Redline also offers advantages in reduced chipping, consistent color and texture with a smooth surface that requires less painting for an even top coat.
Split Face masonry units are integrally colored pre-finished architectural concrete blocks with a beautiful, rough-hewn texture on one or more faces. Units are molded with two units attached face to face. The units are then mechanically split apart after having been cured, leaving the split face with a rough texture, similar to natural stone. The splitting process reveals the aggregates used in the block, so different aggregates will give different appearances and no two units are exactly alike.
