Concrete Blocks

Concrete Block Types

Concrete Blocks are also known as Concrete Masonry Units (CMU) in the masonry industry. Being the core building material of masonry structures, concrete blocks are available in a variety of styles, sizes, and colors. Quality, consistency, and sustainability are found in all RCP's concrete block types. All concrete blocks are manufactured in San Diego, CA from a mixture of locally sourced cements, sands, and aggregates.

Structural concrete blocks conform to ASTM C90, Specification for Load-bearing Masonry Units, Medium Weight. These units also follow the latest editions of ACI 530, and Chapter 21 of both the California Building Code (CBC) and the International Building Code (IBC). To achieve industry standard Medium Weight, RCP Block manufactures its concrete blocks with black volcanic cinders that conform to ASTM C331, Specification for Lightweight Aggregates for Concrete Masonry Units. Different weights and design strengths are available on Special Order. RCP Block & Brick’s non-structural concrete masonry units (CMUs) conform to ASTM C129, Specification for Non-load bearing Concrete Masonry Units.

Green Concrete Blocks with Recycled Material:

RCP Block & Brick has third party certification by the ICC-ES for recycled content.
