Castle Rock Statistics


Product Information

Castle Rock is an architectural concrete masonry unit in which the 8" x 16" surface is subdivided into three unequal sections in the mold. Further these sections are split automatically on different planes which provides four different shapes in each pair of blocks.

Installation

Castle Rock units are laid in running (half) bond. Units are selected randomly so as not to create a defined pattern. The back side of the block is kept smooth and plumb. All mortar joints are tooled and/or compressed. Units may be laid upside down at random. Quarter, half, and three-quarter pieces work well with the random pattern.

Materials

Castle Rock is made with normal weight aggregates complying with ASTM C-33 or, where appropriate, lightweight aggregates complying with ASTM C-331.
