For centuries, brick and block have enhanced architecture, conveying sturdiness and adding rugged beauty. Masons and skilled craftsmen spent many hundreds of hours laying brick and block to achieve these timeless and classic results. Now you can get the same look, without the extra labor and expense, when you use our Brick and Block patterns for your concrete project.
Fluted Rib Patterns
Custom Rock Formliner fluted rib patterns add depth, texture and abstract visual interest to architectural concrete projects. Used for decades by noted architects, including Frank Lloyd Wright, the smooth vertical rows of varying widths, depths, and shapes add interest and a modern look to buildings, walls and many other architectural concrete applications.
Large graphic or mural projects get added visual appeal from fractured fin patterns. Featuring vertical rows of varying widths and depths, fractured fin patterns provide an otherwise smooth mural design with more graphic interest provided by the deeper shadowing effects of the rugged linear textures. One of the oldest and most popular formliner patterns, it was first created around 1970.
Custom Rock Formliner offers a wide selection of fractured fin patterns and textures, including rope, granite, and aggregate, for a chiseled and often jagged appearance.
Bridges, sound walls, and guard rails take on a natural and rustic appearance with the addition of Stone patterns from Custom Rock Formliner. The use of stones in architecture dates back centuries and injects any architectural concrete project with a look of strength, charm, and historical significance - even if it was erected only yesterday.
Custom Rock Formliner offers a wide selection of stone patterns and textures - including ashlar, drystack, cobblestone, fieldstone and flagstone - all with textures molded from natural stones and laid out in both standard and custom coursings.
Stone Patterns: Ashlar
Ashlar formliners replicate the ancient form of stone masonry by the same name, a style which typically has tight - sometimes dry - mortar joints, with the low-relief stones cut into any variation of trapezoidal or square shapes and featuring a cut-stone texture with natural, hand-tooled or smooth façade. Ashlar can be laid out in even or off-set courses as well as randomly, with the pattern layout designed around a wide variety of rhombus shapes.
Drystack patterns are made up of low-height, ledge-type stones, intricately stacked with little-to-no mortar between, giving the pattern a compact, linear look; the chosen stones can be of varying, height, length and even depth. Fitting directly together, drystack patterns are laid-out with a more random, artistic design providing a lot of visual interest.
Random stone and rock patterns are often found in more natural settings, such as state and national parks, as well as projects located near creeks, lakes, and rivers. Some of the most beautifully crafted patterns include varying reliefs of cobblestone, fieldstone and flagstone.
Running bond is a technique for laying out patterns made with masonry bricks or stone blocks. The width, height and textures of the bricks and blocks vary widely; it's the way they're laid out that creates the running bond pattern. Laid out in rows, on top of each other, with an off-set vertical grout joint the running bond technique lends an asymmetrical composition to any architectural concrete project.
Custom Rock Formliner patterns have the remarkable ability to transform any plain concrete surface into a highly-detailed, stylish façade with many different textures, including all varieties of Wood finishes. Wood patterns simulate both natural and cut wood with a range of options; rustic wood, wide planks, shiplap, barn wood and cedar, to name just a few.
Custom Rock Formliner has one of the widest selections of formliner textures available for your architectural concrete project. Turn ordinary concrete applications like walls, bridges, and buildings into distinctive objects of interest with textures that replicate natural flagstone, crushed stone, random slate, limestone, granite, pea gravel and any other rock surface you can imagine.
A Custom Rock Formliner sales representative will be happy to show you all your options.

The finishing touch to any Custom Rock Formliner project is our professionally-applied coloration. Our standard formliners are molded from stone, wood, brick and other raw materials, which means architectural projects created using our formliner - and the crevices, recessed areas, grain patterns and other textures that come from natural products - are only enhanced by the addition of color.
The result? A finished project that displays the color subtleties, shifting hues, flecks, veins, light, and shadow that you might only find in nature, realistically reproduced through an economical, long-lasting process.
Custom Rock Formliner's experienced team of highly-skilled craftsman applies stain and color with an eye to nature, while focusing on making your project unique, realistic and truly unforgettable. Combining years of experience and artistic talent, the Custom Rock crew are experts in this art form, a skill most general contractors lack.
