NRG Insulated Block
Cost effective energy efficiency.

Patented NRG Insulated Block may
building block yet.
Whether you want the look of brick
(think Quik-Brik with high R-value)
or the economy of full high block,
(the guiding principle
NRG allows you to combine the beauty
As continuous insulation becomes an
energy code requirement in more
climate zones, NRG stands alone as
only commercially available, fully
reinforceable block that meets the
ASHRAE definition of c.i.:"insulation
that is continuous across all structural
members without thermal bridges..."
Unlike conventional single wythe masonry
NRG puts the insulation where it can
be most effective: on the outside of a layer
of thermal mass: "insulated thermal mass".
NRG buildings earn a double pay back:
they can use less energy, and can use
NRG walls contain
a high heat capacity
and an exceptional
thermal lag time.
That means they stay
warm or cool for
long periods with minimal
can be loaded
off-peak energy rates.
NRG provides people with
comfort and winter
warmth for about
the cost of conventional buildings.
NRG's value increases
NRG currently saves money and energy
industrial, US Postal Service,
Patrol, office, single-family
multi-unit condos, seven-story
and a 10,000 seat
Building science experts back NRG:
The Advanced Energy Design Guides
(co-produced by USGBC, USDOE,
AIA, and ASHRAE) recognize insulated
thermal mass (continuous insulation
exterior to thermal mass)
as the most
energy efficient insulation
for mass walls in all
