The term “architectural concrete masonry units” typically is used to describe units displaying any one of several surface finishes that affects the texture of the unit, allowing the structural wall and finished surfaces to be installed in a single step. The appearance of the wall can be varied with the unit size and shape, color of the units and mortar, bond pattern, and surface finish.
The most common architectural concrete masonry finishes are, Split Face, Scored, Fluted or Ribbed, Ground Face, and Glazed Face. Availability of architectural units vary greatly between locations, and are often special order. Please contact your closest LEE Building Products for more detailed information on types and color options.
Architectural units comply with the same quality standards as conventional concrete masonry, Standard Specification for Loadbearing Concrete Masonry Units, ASTM C 90. Please refer to our RESOURCE section for additional technical information.
