CalStar’s bricks, pavers, thru-wall units, facing units, and cast stone, are not only attractive, but they deliver the performance of traditional masonry products with dramatically lower carbon footprints.
Traditional masonry products use clay or Portland Cement and require firing in kilns at thousands of degrees. Our innovative technology and manufacturing processes use 81% less energy, emit 84% less CO2, and utilize up to 37% post-industrial recycled material.
And CalStar’s products typically cost less too. We make it easy to do the right thing for the environment and stay under budget.
