Recently Viewed Split Face Block Colors
Echelon Split Face Block standard concrete masonry units (CMUs) are integrally colored pre-finished architectural concrete blocks with a beautiful, rough-hewn texture on one or more faces. Our split face CMUs are molded with two concrete units attached face to face. The units are cured and then mechanically split apart, leaving the split face with a rough texture, similar to natural stone. The face splitting process reveals the aggregates used in the block, so different aggregates will give different appearances and no two split face block units are exactly alike. We offer standard split face block and double-sided split face block to meet multiple architectural masonry needs.

Protecting the building’s envelope from water penetration is critical to the architect and design team. This program addresses the specific detail measures that can contribute to a successfully designed building which will help prevent water penetration.
The recent string of large construction fires across the US has cost billions of dollars in damages to job sites and nearby structures. In this course, learn the root cause of these blazes and how sound design, paired with the use of masonry, can offer fire resistance both during the construction phase and over the life of the building.
Moisture intrusion is a leading cause of structural damage across all building types, and a leading threat to occupant health and wellbeing.
This presentation will cover masonry solutions that deliver superior moisture control and an environmentally sound structure. We will cover proper flashing and masonry installation strategies, discuss water repellant admixture advances for both block and mortars, and review the advantages of complete masonry systems to mitigate water penetration and provide backup moisture management.
