Masonry Wall System
Basic Use: Specially designed concrete masonry unit and individually molded insulation insert. The block and the insulation are combined at delivery to the site. The assembly provides a wall system capable of achieving higher thermal R values than conventional masonry, with no effect on the structural integrity of masonry construction.
The Hi-R Wall System
The Hi-R Wall System, like conventional concrete masonry units insulated
with Korfil, saves job site labor costs simply because all units are delivered
with insulation already in the blocks. In addition:
Limitations: As is the case with any expanded polystyrene product, KORFIL Hi-R� should not be exposed to temperatures in excess of 180�F for prolonged periods of time.
Composition and Materials:
Detail Drawings (924KB PDF)
Technical Data: The Thermal Characteristics tables show the thermal resistance (Rt), including inside and outside air surface resistances of .68 and .17 hr-ft2-�F/BTU, respectively, and the U-values for various densities of concrete masonry units.
Physical Characteristics: See Physical Characteristics chart.
Preparatory Work: None required. Inserts are placed in blocks prior to delivery to the job site. Inserts do not affect the handling of blocks so no added labor is involved. Precautions: During storage and installation, good fire safety procedures should be followed. Care should also be taken to make certain all broken or damaged inserts are replaced.
