With its traditional look and proven performance, you wouldn’t know CalStar brick is produced using less than 20% of the energy required to make clay brick. Our bricks are freeze/thaw resistant, meet FBX dimensional requirements, and feature a premium pressed or antiqued finish.

In commercial construction, the use of CalStar brick can significantly reduce a project’s environmental impact. For a 100,000-brick project, specifying CalStar brick can:

  • Divert more than 85 tons of landfill waste
  • Avoid 210 tons of new raw material mining
  • Reduce CO2 emissions by more than 80,000 lbs (40 tons)
  • Save 500 million BTU of energy

Whether or not sustainability or LEED certification is the goal, CalStar brick is quickly becoming the product of choice for leading architects and builders across the country.
