U-Cara Multi-Face Umbriano Finish for the Look and Feel of Granite
U-Cara Multi-Face is a revolutionary wall system that consists of Sure Track backer blocks for structural strength and dimensional accuracy, and fascia panels that come in a range of different styles.
Among these styles, you can find the Umbriano Finish, which, like Umbriano pavers, features the stunning modern look and feel of granite. This is achieved using Unilock proprietary ColorFusion Technology to create a random dispersion of color throughout the fascia panel’s surface.
In addition to realistic mottled coloring and a range of authentic granite color options, the Umbriano Finish is infused with actual granite particles and hard-wearing minerals for a durable, realistic surface and color that will last a lifetime. As well as the Umbriano Finish, U-Cara Multi-Face is available in Pitched Face and Smooth Face options, and the Series Finish, which also offers granite-like detail.

The Stacked Flagstone Appearance of Rivercrest Wall
Rivercrest Wall offers the rich texture and rustic look of actual stacked flagstone. The ultra-realistic appearance of this wall unit is owed to the Unilock proprietary Reala Surface Technology, which is used to create surfaces identical to that of natural stone, cobblestone, and brick from molds taken from hundreds of original pieces. The result is a wall unit that appears completely natural, while offering the structural stability of a manufactured concrete unit. Rivercrest Wall can be used in the construction of low retaining walls, raised plant beds and other vertical features.
Rivercrest Wall is not only an excellent complement to traditional and rustic landscape design themes, but can also be used to add rich texture and visual interest to modern themes. For this sort of contemporary effect, consider pairing Rivercrest Wall with a sleek, modern paver, such as Beacon Hill Smooth.
