Split Faced Concrete BlocksSplit faced textured blocks are also known as ‘concrete masonry units’. They are similar to other kinds of concrete block in that they are reliable for a wide variety of construction applications but they also add a much more visually attractive appearance.


Thanks to their attractive surfaces they are often used in design applications and the building of structures where beautiful architectural work is a main feature.


Split faced concrete blocks have a heavily textured surface and this gives them a uniquely individual appearance. They are manufactured by machine-cast, reconstituted stone blocks which are then individually split. This is done to create a surface that resembles a hand-hewn stone affect. This is the element that makes split faced concrete blocks so desirable in carefully designed structures particularly domestic homes and modern commercial buildings where stylish atmosphere is a main aim.


Split faced walling concrete blocks have an irregular texturing allowing more warmth and variation to be communicated in the design of buildings making them a firm favourite with designers. They are manufactured in a wide variety of colours and are ideal to create a rustic stone appearance or a modern clean finish. Other finishes can be added to split faced concrete blocks to give them specific features such as repelling water or preventing erosion via sun exposure.
