Besser Company Named Exclusive Mold Manufacturer for Omni Block

Besser Company has been named the exclusive mold manufacturer for Omni Block. Omni Block president Denny Miller commented, “We selected Besser for many reasons: longstanding industry leadership and support, engineering prowess, manufacturing excellence and their global network of sales and service staff are well versed in the concrete products industry.”

At its core, Omni Block is a patented insulated cementitious masonry unit (CMU) wall system which combines the benefits of indigenous aggregates, Expanded Polystyrene, thermal lag (the delay, disruption and redirection of heat flow), exposed thermal mass (the absorption of heat), and air tightness resulting in a thermally efficient wall system. This is consistent with well-known and widely accepted thermal performance concepts. Omni Block delivers a host of benefits that are sought out by the most demanding building professionals of today. Omni Block is an insulated “stand-alone” structural wall system. It does not require furring strips, additional insulation, or sheetrock to complete the wall, even though numerous finishes may be added for aesthetic purposes only.

Hundreds projects have been completed and are testimonials to the effectiveness of the Omni Block design. Owners of the homes, churches and commercial projects can attest to the dramatic energy savings that their buildings have achieved.

Besser Company will display Omni Block in booth N519 at World of Concrete in Las Vegas, Nevada, 24 – 27 January 2012 and in booth 1200 at The Precast Show, in Orlando, Florida,
1 – 3 March 2012.

Besser equipment is operating in more than 120 countries worldwide. The company supplies complete manufacturing systems for the pipe, masonry, hardscape, precast and ready-mix segments of the industry. In addition Besser supplies Kraft Curing systems for all segments of the industry as well as Besser parts, service and training from manufacturing locations staffed with sales and technical service representatives throughout the world.
