Austral Masonry introduces the stunning new GB Aspect range to its portfolio of Australian-made, premium masonry blocks.
Recommended for feature wall applications, the new GB Aspect masonry blocks feature three horizontal lines ground through the face to provide an eye-catching and contemporary appearance. The three lines produce a similar aesthetic to ceramic tiles, which are increasingly being used as feature walls in contemporary home and commercial designs.
The GB Aspect range combines a wall structure and finish in one block, making it an ideal feature wall option. Conventional feature wall products require a structural wall to be built first before the feature product can be fixed; however, a wall built with 200mm Aspect premium masonry blocks provides structure and finish, reducing labour time and costs, and allowing stunning feature walls to be erected and finished with speed and ease.
Austral Masonry’s GB Aspect blocks are available in two distinct finishes including a honed face, which reveals the aggregate used in the block’s composition to give it a smooth, lustrous finish and subtle sheen, as well as the split face finish, created by splitting the body from the rock to produce a bold, rugged texture that exposes the aggregates in the face of the block.
Offering greater choice and design freedom in residential and commercial developments, the GB Aspect range comes in a wide selection of colours to create stylish finishes. The versatile colour palette includes pebble, russet, shale, sand, porcelain, nickel, pewter and limestone.
The GB Aspect range is part of the GB Masonry Collection and is produced from the finest sands and aggregates combined with Austral Masonry’s unique oxide and sand mixing process.
Apart from the aesthetic value, buildings with concrete masonry also offer a number of additional benefits due to their high structural strength, low embodied energy and good thermal mass properties.
Austral Masonry is part of the Brickworks Building Products Group, one of Australia’s largest manufacturers of bricks, pavers, roof tiles, masonry blocks, retaining wall systems, precast concrete panels, façade systems and landscaping products.
