concrete masonry units
The Concrete Products Group consists of regional market leaders in the concrete products industry. The CPG provides consistent, top-quality products to regional and national customers.
These systems can be used in any area an impervious surface area is anticipated. SWM PAVE is not a product, but a system and process which uses already budgeted impervious wearing surface areas to create a Stormwater BMP. Concrete Products Group offers the SWM PAVE Stormwater Management System Nationwide through its network of manufactures.
The Spec-Brik product line offers a variety of fittings that allow for easy installation. Spec-Brik, produced in a classic rectangular brick shape, is manufactured in a variety of color blends. Its size and scale make it a fast track, cost-effective solution that generates time and cost savings for a broad range of design applications. Ideal for projects with "brick or better" requirements, Spec-Brik is available in a range of blends and combines the proven durability and economy of concrete masonry with the rich traditional beauty of brick in a full depth structural veneer system.
Spec-Brik is the attractive and logical alternative to other concrete wall systems. A full size 8"x16" Spec-Brik Jumbo unit is also available; the courses fit perfectly with the standard 4"x16" Spec-Brik for added design flexibility.
This product is ideal for single wythe construction where both exterior and interior wall appearance is important. Spec-Brik® Jumbo combines with 4" Spec-Brik to provide column or band accents with contrasting scale and can be used with 8" architectural masonry units for contrasting colors or textures.
Spec-Brik® Jumbo is often used as a more economical wall assembly for side and rear walls when 4" Spec-Brik is used on the entry wall.
The SPEC-BRIK® Hi-R Masonry Unit has been designed to provide reduced thermal bridging. The assembly provides a wall system capable of achieving higher thermal R-values than conventional masonry, while providing full Code-compliant load resistance.
We can also provide consistent custom color matching services to provide designers with the assurance that the Architectural concrete masonry they specify on projects will have the consistent color and quality throughout the nation.
Our standard colors can be rendered using the CPG Masonry Designer Software in combination with SPEC-BRIK and a wide variety of mortar colors.
Spec-Finish® Block is made with a pre-conditioner and special mix design to produce a tight and smooth finish texture, reducing the amount of block filler coats required.
Spec-Finish® complies with ASTM C90 and is a value engineered alternative to tile and glazed block. It has excellent specifiable performance -- four performance levels available. The product provides an impermeable surface over the entire CMU wall, including mortar joint protection, that is easily cleaned and maintained. Customized colors are avilable to meet your project requirements with Low VOC and low odor.
Spec-Finish® contributes to earning LEED credits: MR Credits 4.1 and 4.2; Recycled Content and IEQ Credit 4.2 Paints and Coatings.
Less porous than traditional concrete masonry, Spec-Surface complies with ASTM C-90 and works well with all types of paints and coatings. Spec-Surface walls are easily cleaned and maintained and are specifically designed to work with painting systems used to finish interior walls in schools, hospitals, laboratory facilities or wherever a smooth finished wall surface is desirable.
Our 100MM thick version, Spec-Pave 100, complies with ICPI (Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute) requirements for an Aspect Ratio for vehicular traffic loadings.
Spec-Pave pavers are perfect for: parking lots, driveways, overflow parking areas, revetments, boat ramps, bike paths, sidewalks and pedestrian areas, and light traffic roadways.
Available in straight or 3-way faces, these lightweight and durable units are easy to handle and a great way to ensure consistent labor productivity.
The OMEGA Retaining Wall System can be used for engineered walls up to 20 feet in height. Omega Wall has been fully tested with Stratagrid® and test results and data files for use in wall design software is available.
Freno Systems help reduce run-off, improve water quality and enhance streetscapes. Freno is a modular precast panel system, offering superior finish, durability, and flexibility that can be installed in any weather, in a day or less.
The Freno system, available in multiple attractive color and finish options, is made up of three basic shapes that, much like giant Legos, can be arranged in a limitless number of configurations. Unlike a cast-in-place basin that can require weeks to build, the Freno system can be installed without the need for over-excavation, trench supports or formwork and without concerns about how the weather will affect the quality of an installation.
The Freno system is suitable for stormwater planters, curb extensions, bio-retention areas, vegetated swales, green gutters or rain gardens and works equally well for filtration or infiltration based systems.
This app will allow designers to use BIM data and accurate color renderings of our Spec-Brik, Spec-Brik Jumbo and Spec-Brik Hi-R product lines. An Android version is schedule for release soon.
