ESTATE BRIK is an architectural masonry unit that combines the beauty of brick with the structural capability of concrete block. This combination allows architects and owners to get both structural and aesthetic design out of one product and because it’s nature it can be incorporated with all masonry product & finishes. ESTATE BRIK’s design of high density, low absorbtion qualities makes it a great option for single wythe construction. Because ESTATE BRIK is locally manufactured and has a percentage of recycled materials it is a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credited option. ESTATE BRIK is the newest option to designing a beautiful building at an even more attractive price.
