Omni Block: Next Gen CMU

  1. Higher Thermal Performance & Unparalleled R-Value.
    • 8″ block = R-20.2 (U=0.049) rating
    • 12″ block = R-29.9 (U=0.033) rating
  2. Unprecedented sound and fire resistant characteristics
  3. Many colors and finishes available

The perfect solution when looking to cost-effectively improve the performance and aesthetics of your building envelope.

Performance & Aesthetics

Excellent insulation & thermal performance

Omni allows insulation inserts in Grouted/reinforced cells which
amounts to 15% more insulation over traditional insulation insert or
foam. The overlapping internal insulation inserts reduces thermal
transmittance through the mortar joint an improvement over traditional
pre-insulated units.

12″ Block Design

  • 11 5/8″ x 7 5/8″ x 15 5/8″ standard concrete masonry unit (CMU)
  • No direct cross webs
  • Thermal path extended to 32″
  • Offset and constricted cross webs and a middle lineal wall create cells
  • Cells are individually filled with uniformly molded EPS insulation
  • Small cells may be required to be filled with rebar and grout
  • Four layers of thermal mass and three layers of insulation

8″ Block Design

  • 7 5/8″ x 7 5/8″ x 15 5/8″ standard concrete masonry unit (CMU)
  • No direct cross webs
  • Thermal path extended to 16″
  • Offset and constricted cross webs and a middle lineal wall create cells
  • Cells are individually filled with uniformly molded Expanded Polystyrene insulation inserts
  • Small cell may be required to be filled with rebar and grout

Insulation Inserts

  • Uniformly molded Expanded Polystyrene
  • R-4 per inch at 1 lb. density
  • Recyclable
  • Non-toxic
  • CFC free
  • No “out gassing”
  • No Formaldehyde
  • Fluted for moisture migration
  • Strategically notched so that when inserted into a block course there is no interference with mortar

 

Exceptionally sound-resistant

Omniblock is exceptionally sound-resistant, achieving an STC rating of 46, exceeding the highest New York City sound code requirements.

The test results from ASTM E-90 Sound Transmission, performed by
Architectural Testing, specifically the Outdoor-to-Indoor Transmission
Class (OITC) achieved a rating of 42. To put this rating in perspective,
New York City sound code has three levels: up to 30, 31 to 35, and the
highest level 36 to 40. Omni Block surpasses the highest sound level
code requirement for Outdoor-to-Indoor Transmission Class.

Extreme fire resistance

The 12x8x16 Omniblock has a stunning 4 hour fire-resistant rating. ACI 216.1-97 / TMS 0216.1-97 Standard Method of Determining Fire Resistance of Concrete and Masonry Assemblies:

Lower construction costs

Omniblock will Lower the Costs of Construction and Maintenance Costs.
Omni Block construction costs approximately 15% LESS (see below) than
standard concrete block, furred-out, insulated and sheetrocked. While
the R-Value of Omni Block is approximately 25% MORE than the CMU wall
assembly. The resource for the table below is from a national
construction management firm. Note that in some regions the Omni Block
individual block price may be higher than this illustration, but then
too, the price of standard block would be higher as well.

In addition to costing less, the elimination of the furring and
sheetrock provides additional livable square footage and the block does
not mold, burn, dehydrate, or attract termites, lowering maintenance
costs. Lastly our Omniblock will increases interior space by eliminating the need for additional walls.

Lastly, your team will enjoy standard masonry practices for
installation. We offer the convenience of half-height units available.
