ReNuBlok™ can help you accumulate Leed Points!
ReNuBlok™is an environmentally friendly product designed and manufacturedexclusively by Cement Products & Supply Co., Inc. We areexcited about helping you obtain additional LEED points in yourfuture LEED projects, and ReNuBlok™ has many attributes to assist you.
As our industry becomes more focused on sustainable development and LEED projects become more prevalent and in some cases mandatory, ReNuBlok™ will become an important part of your LEED projects, and you will want to include ReNuBlok™ in your specifications.
ReNuBlok™ is manufactured using a mix design that contains a very high percentage, by weight, of "post-consumer recycled concrete material" and 1.5% "pre-consumer recycled material" for use in the manufacture of our ReNuBlok™. In addition, all materials used in the manufacture of our ReNuBlok™ are regional materials, in that they are extracted, processed and manufactured within a 500-mile radius of our plant.
As you can see by the test data, ReNuBlok™ meets the standard for ASTM C-90, Type II, Grade N, meeting this standard for use as a load-bearing, exterior, non moisture-controlled unit. In addition ReNuBlok™ has an equivalent thickness of 4.00", and meets ASTM E-119 standard for a fire rating of 2.0 hours.
There are a number of ways our ReNuBlok™ can help you accumulate LEED points in each of the following LEED credit categories as stated in NCMA TEK 6-9B:
1) Energy & Atmosphere Credit-Optimize Energy Performance Concrete masonry has excellent thermal storage due to high thermal mass and specific heat. Masonry walls remain warm or cool long after heating and air-conditioning have been reduced.
2) Materials & Resources Credit-Building Reuse Concrete masonry is an exceptionally durable material, with a life cycle measurably longer than many other building envelope products.
3) Materials & Resources Credit-Construction Waste Management Intact and unused masonry units can easily be returned to our facility and redirected to other projects.
4) Materials & Resources Credit-Recycled Content Cement Products & Supply Co., Inc. ReNuBlok™ enhances the ability to accumulate extra LEED points by containing a very high percentage of post-consumer recycled concrete material.
5) Materials & Resources Credit-Regional Materials All materials used in the manufacture of ReNuBlok™ are extracted, processed and manufactured within a 500 mile radius of our plant.
Additional advantages of ReNuBlok™ and concrete masonry include: lower embodied energy compared to steel and aluminum, lower lifetime maintenance due to durability and long life, reduced potential for mold as concrete masonry does not provide a good food source for mold, as well as increased fire safety.
