Designer Range: Designer Blocks & Aspect Bricks Overview 

National Masonry’s Designer Range features the leading collection of decorative masonry Designer Blocks and our elegant Aspect Brick Range. 

In Victoria, Designer Blocks are available in 5 contemporary colours in either a Smooth Face, Honed, Shot-blast or Polished finish and 6 colours in our Split Face finish.

Our Aspect Honed Bricks are available in 5 beautiful colours with a Honed smooth-to-the-touch, exposed aggregate, matt texture that opens up a world of design possibilities.  Whether large or small, National Masonry’s range of decorative blocks and bricks will give your next project the winning edge.

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.

 

Important Designer Range Information 

Lead Time

Lead times apply to all coloured blocks and bricks. Longer lead times apply to Honed, Polished, and 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. 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.

Blocks & Bricks Storage

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

Coloured Designer Range blocks and bricks 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 Designer Range blocks and bricks 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.

Using a bespoke combination of fine sands, aggregates, and Bayferrox® Pigments, National Masonry® create a solid fine textured masonry block with crisp sharp lines and rich colours. The use of natural raw materials gives the product its own character which cannot be matched by other more artificially processed building materials.

The Split Face block recreates a traditional masonry rock face finish with its bold textures and exposed aggregate finish. Crafted from a single master block, the splitting process uses a diamond tip bolster to split the block to reveal a striking rock face finish.

Using a bespoke combination of fine sands, aggregates, and Bayferrox® Pigments, National Masonry® first create a solid fine textured masonry block with crisp sharp lines and rich colours. The polishing process begins by grinding the surface layer off the block revealing the fine sands and aggregates in a matte finish. Using a diamond head, the face is then mechanically polished to provide a glass like finish.
