  • Concrete unit masonry
  • Permeable interlocking concrete pavements

Concrete masonry walls inherently perform many functions without any added materials or trades:

  • Structural element
  • Finished surface
  • Design material
  • Fire rated up to 4 hours, solid-grouted 8-in and wider
  • Noise control
  • Energy performance

Permeable interlocking pavements also provide multiple functions:

  • Durable surface for vehicles or pedestrians
  • Finished surface
  • Design material
  • Runoff control and filtering
  • Temporary storage for rainwater to allow for infiltration
