23-5/8” & 31-5/8” Long Units: A Fresh Look & Quicker Installation

Longer units are a new product to offer your customers who are laying standard concrete walls. 23-5/8” long units have enjoyed popularity in the northeastern United States market for many years. Now,  31-5/8” long units are beginning to excite the industry. These units give the wall a different appearance and decrease installation time. Many progressive masons are using assist devices to speed up the construction process.

Besser has produced molds for both solid and cored units, in full and half-high dimensions. The appearance of these units can be enhanced with color blending, grinding, and shot blasting. In many cases, mold frames can be designed for producing multiple width units. Besser has engineered molds with standard core plates, and we offer uni-press tops (UPT), and depressed core plates that eliminate core plate marks on the faces of the units. Click here, or on the image of the 31-5/8" unit to see some drawings.
Contact Brian Budnik, Director of Mold Sales, for more information or if you have any questions. Brian can be reached at or +1.989.354.1012.
