Beavertown Block Co., Inc. provides a complete line of masonry assemblies, joint reinforcement, anchors, ties, and connectors. Products are designed for new construction, seismic construction, repair and restoration, and anywhere masonry connections are required by code.
Anchors and ties are types of connectors which attach masonry to a structural support system or connect two or more wythes of masonry together.
Regardless of whether connectors are being used to connect wythes of masonry, intersecting walls, or masonry walls to structural framework, they play a very important role in providing structural integrity and good serviceability.
Connectors should meet the following criteria:
1) Transmit out-of-plane loads from one wythe of masonry to another or from masonry to its lateral support with a minimum amount of deformation.
2) Allow differential in plane movement between the wythe being connected and the masonry backup.
3) Resist corrosion.
4) Accommodate construction by being simple in design and easy to install.
KORFIL UNIVERSAL IN-CORE INSULATION
Korfil one-size molded expandable polystyrene inserts are designed to compress to fit the cores of all masonry units.
At your request, Beavertown Block Co., Inc. can insert Korfil into the cores of the block at the plant. Korfil provides significant improvement in the thermal efficiency of masonry walls and eliminates the need for job site labor.
Korfil comes in two styles to meet most job site conditions. Korfil Hi-R to achieve up to R17.5 and Korfil Icon to achieve up to R 8.
Korfil has reengineered the Korfil Hi-R concrete masonry unit and we can now achieve significant increases in R-Value. By filling the cores of the Korfil Hi-R unit with Perlite masonry fill insulation along with the traditional Korfil Hi-R insert we can achieve R-Values as listed below in concrete masonry unit walls
Other significant features of Korfil include:
