Acme Brick Company Opens Showroom
Acme Brick has consolidated its Dallas and Fort Worth showrooms into an expansive new facility in Euless, signaling the beginning of a new era. The new central location, just west of the south entrance to the D/FW Airport, provides convenient access to Acme's entire Metroplex customer base. The 3,800-square-foot showroom and 12,500-square-foot masonry garden will make the brick selection process informative and enjoyable for prospective homebuyers and commercial customers.
Brick in many special shapes were used on the showroom's exterior. This brick detailing helps both homebuyers and commercial customers imagine the many possibilities for creating a unique and dramatic exterior. The showroom's welcoming exterior features a covered, arched walkway that leads customers into the showroom. Customers who enter through the tower will step onto a glass floor created with the new IBP GlassWalkTM system and view a large colorful brick sculpture depicting images from all over the State of Texas.
The dramatic, brick-walled showroom has a broad array of Acme brick color selections displayed on sample brick walls. Large plasma televisions show complete residential and commercial installations, examples of brick sculptures, and installations of the IBP Glass Block System. Customers can also shop for other masonry materials, including stone, "thin" brick pavers and high quality masonry fireplaces.
The beautiful outdoor masonry garden features genuine clay brick pavers in a variety of shapes, colors, textures and patterns that cover the entire 12,500-square-foot area. In addition, there are 148 sample walls that display different blends of brick, natural Texas stone and concrete block that are designed to give customers the opportunity to see masonry options in natural light. The new masonry garden is one of the largest outdoor brick display areas in the nation.
