MAXBRIC is a revolutionary concrete masonry product developed to offer designers and owners a strong, durable, timeless, and cost-effective way to provide the appearance of traditional brick veneer. MAXBRIC is a structural and/or veneer Concrete Masonry Unit (CMU) manufactured and distributed by Southland Brick + Block and is available in a variety of colors and face textures.
Choose from two face textures and ten distinctive shapes
Each MAXBRIC unit is available in traditional Smooth-Face or Split-Face surface textures. Architects, developers, and owners appreciate the flexibility offered with MAXBRIC and see value in being able to mix and match colors and textures. Unit sizes and shapes are featured on the Unit Availability Chart. These units range from nominal size standard 4 inch, 8 inch, and 12 inch stretcher units to sash and bond beam units. MAXBRIC open core and bond beam units accommodate rebar placement and grouting as required by local building codes. MAXBRIC units also permit the use of integral insulation strategies such as extruded polystyrene (XPS) inserts known in the trade as Styrofoam insulation inserts, loose fill insulation, or foamed-in-place insulation to increase the R-values and take full advantage of concrete masonry’s thermal mass.
MAXBRIC uses the latest technology and state-of-the-art equipment to create stunning and attractive through-the-body colors for its structural and conventional CMU veneer choices. Architects and owners can select from eleven standard colors of which many represent multicolor blends that are setting the standard for high-end concrete masonry veneers. This coupled with the option of different face textures makes for an unrivaled product offering in the marketplace.
Availability and Delivery
MAXBRIC is manufactured and distributed by LEE Brick + Block. Lee operates ten locations across the Commonwealth of Kentucky so MAXBRIC is readily available. LEE Brick + Block prides itself in customer response and satisfaction, so be assured every measure will be taken to deliver MAXBRIC in a timely fashion. Sufficient lead time is required when creating custom colors.
MAXBRIC units exceed the requirements of ASTM-C90 for compression strength and absorption. The MAXBRIC mix design and raw materials provide the highest quality and is used to resist fading from ultraviolet light and attack by acidic substances. An integral water repellant, MaxGard, is added to the concrete during manufacturing. This system for water repellency includes the requirements of good workmanship (full head and bed joints) and good design details for water resistant walls and proper placement of control joints. We will be adding more details and pictures to the web site over the next few days. Surface sealers are recommended for all types of architectural concrete masonry to assure excellent wall performance.
