Architectural Masonry 10 Series

PLEASE NOTE: Firth 10 Series Architectural Masonry will be Discontinued from the 23rd of July 2018.

 Firth’s Architectural Masonry is advanced masonry that integrates the use of high – performance material with good design detailing and workmanship. Chose the popular 190mm high or 90mm high blocks to create and personalise a design feature which incorporates different face texture options, honed or fair face.

Note:  Our blocks/masonry products are made in NZ with locally sourced natural materials and as such colour variation between regions is expected. 
If honing natural grey masonry, there may be medium to extreme degrees of colour and exposed texture variation between blocks which will appear throughout the finished wall. We recommend using Firth’s Architectural Masonry which has been specifically designed to be honed or polished  to achieve colour tone consistency across the wall.
 


Please talk to your local Firth representative for more information.

Weathertightness &  Sealing

Weathertightness & Sealing

We recommend sealing all Architectural Masonry. Sealers used must now comply with the CCANZ CP01.2014 code of practice and in most cases, the sealer should only be applied by a licensed applicator.

Honing Masonry

Honing Masonry

A smooth ground finish with some pitting, exposing the mix beneath, honing the blocks can really create a stylish effect (or will transform your wall into a granite look) and can be utilised in both exterior and interior situations. All Honed Architectural Masonry used in external applications must be sealed.
