What Is a CMU?

Referred to as CMUs, concrete blocks, or cinder blocks, concrete masonry units are precast rectangular blocks that are commonly utilized in various construction projects. They can either be solid or hollow and typically feature two or more cores. These units are widely used in the construction industry.

Architectural CMUs display a surface finish affecting that affects the texture of the unit, allowing the wall and finished surface to be installed in a single step. They find their use in retaining walls, partitions, and other types of enclosures. Certain units come with identical treatment or patterns on either side, making them ideal for use as both exterior and interior finish wall materials.

Manufactured to meet ASTM C-90 standard specification for loadbearing, structural CMUs are employed in construction scenarios where the walls of the building also serve a structural purpose. This type of CMU is engineered for durability and time efficiency and can cater to virtually any building design.
