National Masonry’s range of architectural decorative blocks will give your next project the winning edge.
Note – not all colours and finishes are available on all Architectural Designer Range blocks.
Smooth Face – A finely textured finish created through the standard moulding process. Both faces are suitable for face block work. Care is required when laying 2 face walls as variation in width of up to /- 2mm may be present.
Value Added Finishes
Value added finished masonry is supplied as a single face product. When only one face is value added, the back side of the block may not be suitable as a face finish due to the value adding process. If both faces are value added, both faces will be suitable for a face work but care will be required when laying as there may be 2-5mm difference in the width of the individual blocks due to the honing / polishing process.
Shot-Blast Face – This process subtly exposes the aggregates, producing a weathered, sawn stone-like finish.
Honed Face – The honing process grinds 2-3mm from the block surface, producing a matt exposed-aggregate finish.
Polished Face – This involves producing a denser block which is honed and then buffed. Polishing enriches the colour of the aggregates. The finely finished polished surface is ideal for feature walls, trims and banding.
Split Face – The splitting process produces a bold textured, exposed aggregate finish.
Important Designer Range Information
Lead Time – Lead times apply to all Architectural Designer Block Standard 15.01 Newcastle blocks. Longer lead times apply to Architectural Designer Blocks which are Honed, Polished or Shot-Blast Finishes, as the product must be cured to harden sufficiently before processing.
Colour and Texture Variation – Some variation in colour may occur due to natural variations in raw materials. Colour variation can also occur from batch to batch making it essential to order all product requirements at the same time. National Masonry™ recommends part size blocks are cut on site to maintain colour consistency. Architectural Designer Blocks can be cut to order.
Blending – To obtain a consistent finish and mitigate colour variation, National Masonry™ strongly recommends ‘blending’ which is drawing product from multiple pallets on-site.
Block Storage – Architectural Designer Block Standard 15.01 Newcastle blocks must be kept dry on site before use and when laid. Freshly laid walls must be covered overnight and when rain interrupts work in order to prevent moisture entering the cores of the blocks. Failing to do this will increase the likelihood of efflorescence.
Mortar – Architectural Designer Block Standard 15.01 Newcastle blocks contain an efflorescence inhibitor (Tech-Dry™). To complete the system, an additive must be used in mortar mix. National Masonry supply and recommend TECH-DRYAD Mortar Additive. The consumption of additive varies significantly, 20 litres of mortar additive may lay approximately 1000-1500 Tech Dry Blocks.
Sealing – All Architectural Designer Block Standard 15.01 Newcastle blocks should be cleaned and sealed with a quality penetrating sealer after installation. Failure to do so dramatically increases the likelihood and severity of efflorescence and general staining.
