About Slump Face

About Slump Face

Echelon Slump Block CMU is a standard weight, hollow load-bearing concrete masonry unit that offers the same basic standard dimensions as regular concrete masonry.
 
To give Slump Block masonry units their special character, the manufacturing process allows the mix to slump within desired limits when removed from its mold. This creates a varied roll in the block texture that emulates the appearance of handmade adobe, which is popular in the West.

Modern Masonry: Fire Protection and Enhanced Performance
CEU Credits: 1 LU | HSW

The recent string of large construction fires across the US has cost billions of dollars in damages to job sites and nearby structures. In this course, learn the root cause of these blazes and how sound design, paired with the use of masonry, can offer fire resistance both during the construction phase and over the life of the building. 

After completing this course, attendees will be able to: 
Discuss the factors involved in the recent rash of construction fires around the nation.
Explain masonry’s ability to resist fires and assure safe buildings both during the construction phase and after completion.
Identify the ways in which masonry can resist moisture intrusion and protect buildings from moisture damage over the life of the building.
Describe three masonry systems that have been upgraded to meet codes, resist fires, and boost building performance and energy efficiency. ​
 
This course is applicable to all masonry product lines.

IECC Energy Review and Masonry Compliance Options (LU/HSW)
CEU Credits: 1 LU | HSW

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.

After completing this course, attendees will be able to: 
Understand IECC requirements for exterior walls. 
Describe the principles behind continuous insulation (CI).
Develop effective specifications that incorporate continuous insulation into masonry systems. 
Understand the benefits and limitations of “new” & “old” wall systems.
Effectively apply this knowledge to future projects in order to meet increasingly aggressive energy performance goals.
 
This course is applicable to all masonry product lines, especially for InsulTech and EnduraMax

Masonry and Leed v4.1 (LU/HSW)

CEU Credits: 1 LU 

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.

After completing this course, attendees will be able to: 
Understand the changes in the Materials and Resources credit category in LEED v4. 
Identify elements of sustainable design that are not always part of green building rating systems. 
Provide an overview of the LEED v4.1 BD+C New Construction Rating System. 
Explain sustainable design strategies and LEED strategies that utilize masonry.
 
This course is applicable to all masonry products.
