Flashed color is an additional option that can be added to any concrete masonry unit. This process of sporadically spraying color to the mix seconds prior to adding it to the mold to be machined, gives each unit a unique and distressed look. This detail often mimics a used or repurposed masonry unit adding character to your design.
Flashed units are only available through special order. Please contact our sales office for physical color samples, prices, and lead times.
