Inherent Sustainability

Jandris CMU’s – An Inherently Sustainable Building Material

Structures built with Jandris Concrete Masonry Units have a series of inherently sustainable attributes. In addition to these attributes, Jandris Sustainablock Series contains recycled SCM’s and recycled aggregates.

 

DURABILITY = COST EFFICIENCY

The longevity and low-maintenance of Jandris concrete masonry products is unmatchable.

  • Resistant to rotting and warping, requiring less replacement and maintenance.
  • Non-combustible, and will remain structurally sound in the unfortunate event of fire.
  • Vermin and insect resistant.
  • Impervious to damages from UV Light.
  • Because CMU’s can be used as an interior and/or exterior finish material, paints and coatings are not needed.

LOCAL

70% of our aggregates are drawn within 10 miles of the plant.
Most of the remaining 30% of raw materials are drawn from within 200 miles of the plant.

MOLD RESISTANT

Concrete Masonry helps to reduce mold growth by not providing a food source.

NON-TOXIC

The manufacturing of Jandris CMU’s produces no toxic by-products, pollutants or hazardous waste.

ACOUSTICAL Peformance

Due to the high acoustical performance of CMU’s, their use can help with noise control and eliminate the need for additional soundproofing.

High Thermal Mass = Energy Efficiency

Due to high thermal mass, the use of CMU’s can reduce heating and cooling loads, helping to minimize HVAC systems.
