E-Crete meets architects’, engineers’ and
contractors' concern for durability, quality of construction,
building with energy-saving products, as well as
the projected future value of structures. The construction
industry has become more competitive, profit margins
are shrinking and construction schedules are accelerating,
making E-Crete blocks an increasingly attractive,
cost effective building material.
E-Crete blocks are a solid, high-performance concrete
block used for over 75 years in a variety of commercial,x
industrial and residential construction applications
worldwide in a variety of climates. E-Crete is
affordable, readily available, and can give perceptive
designers an edge in a very competitive market.
E-Crete is price competitive with other building
materials and offers benefits that can reduce overall
project costs. Lightweight E-Crete yields overall
structural economies by reducing the mass that
must be considered in seismic design and the dead
load transmitted to foundations and superstructure
members. E-Crete installs easily without special
crews or equipment.
In addition to design and construction benefits,
E-Crete provides significant advantages to commercial
building occupants and homeowners over other building
materials. Escalating cooling and heating costs
make E-Crete’s high thermal efficiency and
improved insulation properties attractive to owners.
E-Crete can also satisfy the more stringent construction
standards promulgated in the aftermath of recent
fires, hurricanes and earthquakes. E-Crete’s
proven durability and environmental benefits appeal
to those who are becoming much more sensitive to
the life-cycle economy of buildings.
