SmartWall gives you the confidence of knowing you are specifying the best product available. Your client will also benefit from earlier completion and life cycle cost savings. Your customer’s satisfaction will be the hallmark of your portfolio for many decades to come.

Masonry Contractor

SmartWall’s reduced weight and high strength shorten construction time, provide safer scaffolds, decrease the potential for chips, save wear and tear on your equipment, and make you more competitive with other wall systems.

Reduced weight also reduces work related injuries resulting in fewer worker compensation claims and lower insurance rates, increases mason productivity, and extends the careers of your masons. SmartWall gives you a built-in advantage and a safer working environment.

Block Manufacturer

SmartWall maximizes concrete masonry’s competitiveness. By manufacturing high performance concrete masonry units, you help insure the future of the masonry industry by providing a product that is mason-friendly, owner-friendly, and which competes effectively with other wall systems.

What Makes SmartWall So Smart?

It’s the aggregate. You may have heard the slogan, “It’s what’s inside that counts.” Inside all SmartWall units is high quality structural grade expanded shale, clay or slate (ESCS) aggregate, manufactured to optimum gradation for compaction, strength, shrinkage control and uniformity of texture. The ESCS aggregate blend is mixed with water, cementitious materials, and admixtures in a precise formulation that is compacted to optimum conditions. Mixture composition may vary according to the manufacturer; however, all SmartWall units must meet or exceed the quality and performance standards (See Page 5) established for SmartWall by the Technical Committee of the Expanded Shale, Clay and Slate Institute.
