QUIK-BRIK WITH NEW V-TECHNOLOGY

Quik-Brik is America's most popular single-wythe masonry unit and now it's even better with proven V-Brik design technology. The new improved design angles the top web surfaces toward the center of the unit. Wind driven rain and crack induced water leakage is now safely controlled in the middle of the unit. This simple and effective value-added feature helps keep interior walls dry and prevents mold growth.

ANGLED WEB SURFACES
ensure crack-induced, wind-driven rain is safely controlled and directed down to flashing and weephole exits.

CRISP EDGES
and corners allow the mason to tool and compact the joint for a tight seal.

WATER REPELLENT ADMIXTURE
inside Quik-Brik reduces absorption, permeability and wicking.

QUIK-BRIK WITH NEW V-TECHNOLOGY
Keeps wind-driven rain where it belongs - OUTSIDE.

QUICK AND EASY INSTALLATION

Installing your concrete masonry units is a fast, one-step process. It's much more efficient than the time consuming process needed to install a typical brick veneer. This improved efficiency expedites project completion, reducing the time between blueprint and "open for business".


NATIONWIDE DISTRIBUTION

With Quik-Brik, you have access to a national network that dramatically reduces the time it takes for your order to reach its destination, and ensures the colors you want are always available and ready to deliver. Our national coverage means Quik-Brik personnel are close by when you require assistance.


THE BEAUTY OF BRICK

When it comes to giving your project the rich look of brick, Quik-Brik more than lives up to its solid reputation. Whether viewed right from the street or right up close, there's no mistaking Quik-Brik's rich, distinctive appearance.

WALL PERFORMANCE & DESIGN ATRIBUTES

COMPRESIVE STRENGTHS
Quik-Brik units exceed compressive strength requirements of ASTM C-90. Consult a registered professional engineer to determine additional reinforcing schedules required by local building codes and building design.

FIRE RATINGS
Quik-Brik units typically achieve two to three hour fire ratings, depending on unit dimensions and manufacturing location. Actual values can be provided by your local Quik-Brik Representative.

SOUND TRANSMISION
Quik-Brik units typically have an STC (Sound Transmission Class) of 45-48, depending on unit dimensions and manufacturing location. Actual values can be provided by your local Quik-Brik Representative.

THERMAL PERFORMANCE
Quik-Brik units can be insulated using the same insulation materials used in standard CMU wall construction.

INDOR AIR QUALITY
Quik-Brik units with V-Brik Technology help keep interior walls dry. Without moisture, the potential for mold growth is greatly reduced.
