Recently Viewed EnduraMax® High Performance Wall System Colors
Every component of the EnduraMax® High-Performance Wall System is specifically engineered to work together, forming an energy efficient concrete block that is the ideal building material and cladding solution. The complete stone veneer wall system offers an insulation value of R9.2 steady state. This extra layer of thermal protection means building owners can benefit from a cladding system that helps meet and exceed today’s demanding energy codes. This product is certified by the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation, #FL 27462.
When properly constructed, single-wythe masonry walls offer a myriad of benefits that no other building material can touch from fire to moisture protection, durability to aesthetics, and cost-effective installation This presentation covers how to properly construct a wall using proper design techniques focusing on the prevention of moisture, cracking, and cleaning issues in order to take full advantage of the benefits of masonry construction.
Protecting the building’s envelope from water penetration is critical to the architect and design team. This program addresses the specific detail measures that can contribute to a successfully designed building which will help prevent water penetration.
The International Energy Construction Code is leading the charge for increasingly stringent energy code requirements across the nation, requiring ongoing adaptation of design strategies.
This course reviews exterior envelope R-Value requirements and masonry wall compliance options in regards to the latest IECC code as well as several competitive building materials. We will review evolving exterior wall R-value requirements, explore the definition and impact of continuous insulation (CI), and present design opportunities for innovative wall systems that meet and exceed IECC performance standards.

Sustainable design and green building are ever-evolving, with the latest version, LEED v4.1 introduced in 2019.
This course will explore the latest modifications to the LEED standard, with a particular emphasis on masonry compliance and contribution. Developed by LEED expert Christine A. Subasic, P.E., LEED A.P., the course will introduce attendees to sustainable design and provide an overview of the LEED Rating System, and its credit categories, with a particular emphasis on Materials and Resources, as well as covering criteria and considerations used in selecting masonry products for LEED projects.
Masonry delivers a variety of benefits to occupants and designers alike including being highly environmentally-friendly due to its durability and reduced embodied energy compared to other structural building materials.
This course will discuss ASTM specification classifications, as well as the various texture, pattern and color variations offered by masonry. Additionally, the course will review the environmental contributions that masonry offers the architect including the prevention of moisture and mold in construction projects and protentional LEED credits.
Moisture intrusion is a leading cause of structural damage across all building types, and a leading threat to occupant health and wellbeing.
This presentation will cover masonry solutions that deliver superior moisture control and an environmentally sound structure. We will cover proper flashing and masonry installation strategies, discuss water repellant admixture advances for both block and mortars, and review the advantages of complete masonry systems to mitigate water penetration and provide backup moisture management.
Meeting a Higher Standard
EnduraMax’s continuous insulation barrier is an ideal way to meet Energy Star’s strict energy performance score requirements. The superior thermal performance of this building material will contribute to eligibility for a Designed to Earn the Energy Star (DEES) certification. With the help of the EnduraMax Wall, you can truly distinguish a building by being able to meet this prestigious standard for energy efficiency.
EnduraMax™ Wall System consists of three essential elements that combine to deliver unmatched performance & beauty to your project.
As codes continue to move toward tougher building envelope standards, the superior thermal performance of EnduraMax concrete blocks enables you to exceed increasingly stringent R-Value requirements without having to add additional exterior insulation or build larger wall cavities.
EnduraMax may be installed on metal frame or wood frame buildings up to climate zone 6. Zones 7 and 8 may also be addressed by evaluating the building characteristics and installation details.
