Today's Concrete Masonry Units are not your grandmother's CMU's. No longer hand cast, one block machine can produce thousands of high quality, uniform pieces every day.
Modern designers now have abundant color and texture choices, while the advantages of CMU construction remain the same.
Sustainable, cost effective, energy efficient, low maintenance, secure, quiet, fire-safe, durable, attractive, able to be constructed in tight staging areas, CMU construction makes great business sense.
Evolving energy codes and consumer demand sparked the invention of the revolutionary NRG Insulated Block, the CMU designed for today.
What's different? New energy codes require CMU walls in most climate zones to have insulation (continuous insulation works best). That requires another trade, more material, and costly labor.
NRG eliminates the need for additional insulation. One trade constructs the wall, and NRG blocks install like standard CMU's (masons typically get used to handling them within two shifts).
Consumers now demand high performance, energy efficient walls. Building experts define the perfect mass wall as one that has mass on the inside, mass on the outside, and continuous insulation in the middle. NRG fits that description.
Why? From a performance perspective, the mass on the inside absorbs and stores energy, which moderates the indoor air temperature. The insulation keeps the energy in the building, and prevents exterior influence, and the exterior mass keeps Mother Nature from busting through.
