Insulation

NRG Insulated Block

NRG Insulated Block creates insulated thermal mass, a complete separation between the interior and exterior block components. NRG is the only commercially available block that features zero thermal bridging, which enables it to achieve a very high effective R-value (R-22).

Advanced Energy Design Guides, co-produced by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), US Department of Energy (US DOE), the American Institute of Architects (AIA), and the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), recognize insulated thermal mass as the most energy efficient insulation configuration for mass walls in all climate zones.




Perlite Loose Fill Insulation - Medium Grade Amorphous Alumina Silicate

Perlite is used as loose fill insulation in masonry walls, an aggregate in spray-on fireproofing, chimney insulation mix, a lightweight aggregate in plaster and concrete, and as a texturing agent for paints.



KORFIL® Block Insulation Inserts for Concrete Masonry Units

KORFIL Inserts are individually molded of expandable polystyrene and designed to fit standard two (2) core masonry units of 6, 8, 10 and 12-inch widths for use in both single wythe and cavity wall construction. Inserts are preinstalled at the block plant prior to delivery on the job site. In addition to nearly doubling the insulating characteristics of a masonry wall.

KORFIL Inserts:

- Eliminate the need for on-site labor to insulate masonry walls.
- Do not deteriorate in insulation R-value with moisture or aging.
- Allow space within the cores for the escape of moisture. This space also allows for easy installation of utilities within the wall.
- Can be handled by masons just as easily as uninsulated blocks.
- Are cost-competitive when compared to the various other methods use to insulate concrete blocks.
- Have no effect on the fire rating of conventional concrete block walls.
- Improve both the dewpoint and sound transmission resistance of ordinary concrete blocks.


ICON® Universal Inserts for Concrete Masonry Units


ICON Inserts are molded from expandable polystyrene. The design of the insert allows it to compress so it will fit the cores of all masonry units with just one size. Inserts are placed in the cores of the block at the block plant. By placing inserts in blocks, there is a significant improvement in the thermal efficiency of masonry walls.

ICON Insulated Blocks:

- Eliminate the need for on-site labor to insulate masonry walls.
- Insulation R-value does not deteriorate with moisture or aging.
- Allow space within the cores for the escape of moisture. This space also allows for easy installation of utilities within the wall.
- Can be handled by masons just as easily as uninsulated blocks.
- Are cost-competitive when compared to the various other methods used to insulate concrete blocks.
- Have no effect on the fire rating of conventional concrete block walls.
- Improve both the dewpoint and sound transmission resistance of ordinary concrete blocks.


Nudura Insulated Concrete Forms

Insulated Concrete Forms or (ICF) from NUDURA provide design professionals, architects, home owners and contractors a more efficient way to build Insulated Concrete Form concrete and commercial Insulated concrete form structures. Building with NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF's) Integrated Building Technology allows concrete homes and commercial buildings to be built stronger, more energy efficient, more comfortable and environmentally friendly.
