Elevate your next masonry project with one of Echelon’s performance upgrade options. From oversized masonry units that produce a classic aesthetic, to insulated concrete blocks that improve energy efficiency, to acoustical concrete masonry units (CMUs) that dampen sound in large spaces, learn how you can take your project to the next level.

The performance upgrade options for our masonry products focus on five primary areas: energy efficiency, aesthetic enhancement, sustainability, moisture management and architectural acoustics/soundproofing.


Acoust-Wal's unique open-cavity design captures and controls sound transmission at all frequencies.

InsulTech System: Insulated Concrete Block

Insultech's patented three-piece unit assembly combines structural masonry unit, molded EPS insulation insert and thin veneer face to deliver R-16.2 performance and the ultimate in aesthetic flexibility.

Monumental CMU

Monumental Series over-sized masonry units are large, specialty sized pre-finished architectural concrete masonry units used to create large-scale walls, columns and arches of monumental proportion. These units are constructed from integrally colored concrete with one or more faces ground to expose the variegated colors of the natural aggregates.
