Nearly a century ago, Acme Brick Company made its first major expansion, in central Arkansas. What drew Acme to the banks of the Ouachita continues to fire the imaginations of architects today: a contemporary palette of brilliant whites, lush tans and creams, and stately gray brick. In recent years, a vigorous product-development program has expanded the plant’s selection even further.
Please note: The colors reproduced here are the best that technology can offer, but ask your Acme sales professional for physical samples before making selections.
Execute your boldest designs – sharp corners, dramatic shadows, stately columns, soaring arches - entirely in brick. Acme Brick’s Perla East Gate Plant maintains a comprehensive special-shapes program that includes arches, bullnoses, caps, coping, coves, radius units, shelf angles, slope sills, soldiers, watertables, and more. For a gallery of commonly produced special shapes, consult the Acme Brick Pocket Guide to Brick Construction, available from your Acme representative or downloadable here as a PDF file.
For the ultimate degree of design freedom, specify your own custom shapes, manufactured to order according to your exact specifications. Working directly from architectural plans, Acme’s special-shapes team will collaborate with the design team to develop drawings for each shape needed, as well as elevations, exposed surfaces, dimensions, estimated quantities needed, and pricing. When the project calls for something special, you can rely on the sales, technical, and manufacturing teams at Acme Brick to help you strike the perfect balance of aesthetics and value.
