Echelon Offers a Half-High CMU Option

Echelon Masonry has expanded its InsulTech Insulated Concrete Masonry Unit (ICMU) System to include Half-High unit options. Featuring more than a dozen profiles — in finished nominal dimensions of 12 1/4 x 4 x 16 inches — InsulTech offers more flexibility and options for architects designing hospitals, schools and other institutions, while meeting building codes. The InsulTech system offers high thermal efficiency in an innovative design combining a pre-assembled structural masonry unit with a molded, High-Performance Neopor EPS insulation insert, and thin veneer face to provide a 16.2 R-Value at 75°F. Internal stainless steel metal anchors ensure wind-load resistance and integrity for fire safety. Molded drainage channels within the EPS inserts, combined with compliant closed-cell gasket material with drainage perforations, provide continuous insulation, air tightness and superior moisture management.
