Split face CMU are consistently the most popular of the architectural masonry unit finishes because they offer a uniquely textured face and can be manufactured as a paint grade product or in a variety of attractive colors. Because of the manufacturing process of a split face block, no two units are exactly alike, which offers aesthetic depth to building design. Our split face masonry can be used as a load-bearing wall or as a veneer, and it blends well with other architectural block finishes. Split face masonry is thermally efficient, sound absorbent and fire resistant– making it a preferred product in the construction of commercial projects such as theaters, schools and municipal buildings. Manufactured as a normal weight or lightweight unit, it conforms to ASTM C90 standard specification for load-bearing concrete masonry units.
