New Products

Acme Brick Company
Fort Worth, Texas

New Products for Masonry Contractors

Acme Brick Company has introduced the new brick color "Texas," which emphasizes Acme Bricks' natural origins from fine earth clays. "Texas" has a dusty pink base with gray and white elements, helping the brick to blend with many exterior colors. The choice of mortar color has a dramatic impact on the appearance of structures built with this brick. Also, architects can now use Acme's free, interactive software Masonry Designer at www.brick.com to evaluate various combinations of brick, other masonry elements, mortar color and trim colors. For more information, contact Acme Brick Company at (800) 792-l234 or visit www.acmebrick.com.

The BLOCKSHEAR is a cordless, foot-operated, hydraulic tool that produces precise split-face cuts to precast concrete blocks from 2-1/2" to 8" of thickness. The unit allows the operator an economical, easy, dust-free and convenient onsite method for making straight and angle cuts. Unlike other shears/splitters, the BLOCKSHEAR'S table raises and lowers under pressure to assist the hydraulic operation, much like the more costly air-assisted units.
