Unparalleled in Safety, without Sacrificing Aesthetics
Westbrook Block is a proud producer of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Approved Fire-Rated CMU in both Light Weight and Normal Weight densities in 2-, 3- and 4-hour configurations. These blocks while allowing for safe means of egress and fire rating should no longer be looked at as JUST normal Grey CMU.
Westbrook prides itself on manufacturing UL CMU that can be integrated into the Design Assemblies listed below. However, it has become so common to sacrifice the aesthetics of the CMU for the UL Listing. This is not an issue at Westbrook. Our UL Fire Rated CMU come in all of our amazing finishes we pride ourselves on.
Because there are no apparent differences in appearance between a standard CMU and a UL Fire-Rated CMU, Westbrook Block marks the inside core of each UL Fire Rated CMU with a raised “Frog.” In the event the design professional, building committee or local governing authority requires further assurance that the CMU used in fire walls are indeed Underwriters Laboratories Fire-Rated, individual Fire-Rated CMU can be individually marked with the UL logo. Additionally, a UL Certificate is delivered to the job site so that the contractor can make it available to local building officials.
*Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) is an independent third party product safety testing and certification organization. UL has tested products for public safety for over a century. Each year more than 17 billion UL Marks are applied to products worldwide.
