Masonry elements can be masonry, brick, or precast concrete blocks, depending on the types of building models used. Concrete blocks can also be made to meet any project requirement, and some concrete blocks are made from recycled materials. Concrete and concrete blocks are often used as the structural core for brick plywood masonry, or used alone for walls in factories, garages, and other industrial style buildings where such an appearance is acceptable or desired.
Concrete masonry is also used to protect the structural integrity of steel from the effects of fire. Masonry blocks can help contain fire and prevent structural collapse because the material can withstand extreme temperatures. Brick buildings can also be built to improve safety by reducing fire damage, such as using fire cuts during construction. Brick construction provides the best protection against burglary, fire and adverse weather conditions.
There is a distinct safety advantage as masonry resists fire longer than other building materials. Masonry withstands temperatures up to 1000°F and withstands direct exposure to fire for up to 4 hours.
Masonry is highly resistant to rot, pests, weathering and natural disasters such as hurricanes and tornadoes. Brickwork provides long-lasting beauty and requires less maintenance than other building materials. Masonry is also a durable building material with very low maintenance that will provide additional savings in the long run. Stone masonry can last over a century and save you time and money to keep your commercial building aesthetic.
