System 12

The System 12

The System 12 is primarily used in commercial and institutional type buildings because these buildings typically require more structural strength that is provided by not only the larger block but the additional rebar and grout that the block can accommodate without sacrificing energy efficiency.

The System 12 adds another layer of masonry and another layer of insulation, resulting in four layers of masonry and three layers of insulation. The long and short insulation inserts shown above are also used in the System 12.
