The 3-9/16” Emperor was designed to model the look and feel of a modular brick with a rise to run of 1:4 on a large building where the scale of the brick is more consistent with the scale of the building. The larger size is the perfect brick for large buildings with long walls like those found in schools, warehouses, government projects, shopping centers, hotels and condominiums. The larger brick further reduces the overall wall costs while creating longer lines. The 3-9/16” Emperor has another advantage. Slots can be extruded into the face during manufacturing to simulate a false mortar joint. This creates the appearance of two 4” nominal Modular brick in the wall at the lower cost of the larger Emperor size. Multiple slots can be added to create different appearing bond patterns.
