Buildex SmartWall Systems
SmartWall Systems units made with
Buildex aggregate are up to 40% lighter than masonry units made with sand and gravel
"normal weight" concrete. The blocks lighter weight increases mason
productivity, speeds construction, lowers construction costs and reduces back injuries.
Buildex SmartWall masonry also provide superior insulation by combining high R values with
thermal mass and low thermal bridging. The energy savings from SmartWall can more than pay
for cost of the unit! In addition, SmartWall offers superior fire resistance, effective
sound absorption, excellent seismic performance, low shrinkage, and high strain capacity.
Buildex SmartWall Systems units are
available from quality block producers located throughout the Midwest and Rocky Mountain
states. SmartWall Systems is also available in other parts of the country, from block
producers supplied by other members of the Expanded Shale, Clay and Slate Institute
(ESCSI). To achieve the benefits of SmartWall it has to be specified for use in your
project. Our guide specification makes this easy. You can specify SmartWall Systems units
with confidence, knowing they are available from producers throughout the country.
Complete details on SmartWall, including specifications and producers, are available in
the sections that follow.
