Architectural Blocks

Recycled Block (CMU)

What is recycled CMU block? A recycled concrete masonry unit is a type of architectural block featuring a high thermal mass and a modular design. A recycled CMU block can be produced with different finishes and faces, which creates an architectural effect that ensures that no two blocks are exactly alike.

Recycled Block Benefits

Our eco-SMART blocks provide an acoustically quiet building option that is perfect for offices and other environments where soundproofing is desirable. The thermal mass of the walls offers excellent protection against the temperature fluctuations that are prevalent in our northeastern climate.

Our commercial architectural blocks also absorb moisture, which increases the comfort of the structure’s interior and reduces mold growth. What’s more, these blocks’ superior fire-resistant properties increase building and occupant safety.

As a builder or mason, you will appreciate the architectural recycled CMU blocks’ modular design that simplifies the construction process and minimizes waste. You’ll be able to complete your projects with greater speed and efficiency.

What Makes eco-SMART Blocks Unique?

Our eco-SMART blocks are manufactured with 30% recycled material, making them one of the most environmentally friendly building products on the market. They help to create a cleaner, healthier environment by reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

You also have the flexibility to increase the percentage of the natural sustainable material or add to the color of any regular CMU block. Our integral color system provides a permanent finish that never needs painting, which minimizes the need for maintenance.

The recycled content of eco-SMART block can help you earn LEED points for your sustainable building projects. You can receive LEED credits for durability, mold resistance, finishes that do not require painting and impact-resistant finishes. Points are awarded when materials are sourced within a 500-mile radius of our Chambersburg, PA facility.
