How The Perfect Block Is Helping Homeowners in Fire Prone Areas
Perfect for Fire-Prone Areas
The Perfect Block™ is a great option for homeowners in fire-prone areas, such as California, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. These states are known for their active wildfire seasons, which can cause extensive property damage and loss of life. By using the Perfect Block™, homeowners can build a fire-resistant home that is also energy-efficient and cost-effective. The block is made of a mixture of recycled expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam, Portland cement, and proprietary admixtures, which give the block its fire-resistant properties. Additionally, the block is strong and provides superior insulation, making it ideal for homes in these fire-prone areas.
How Is The Perfect Block Fire Resistant?
The Perfect Block is fire-resistant due to its unique composition. It is made of a mixture of recycled expanded polystyrene (EPS) commonly known as “Styrofoam,” Portland cement, and proprietary admixtures and water. The EPS used in each block is 100% recycled EPS, which is intercepted before ending up in a landfill. The EPS is what gives the block its fire-resistant properties, as it is able to withstand temperatures of up to 4000 degrees Fahrenheit. The Perfect Block is also reinforced with steel rebar, making it even more resistant to fire. Additionally, the Perfect Block is designed to be monolithic, meaning it is formed under pressure and with strict quality control, so each block is nearly identical to the next, allowing for easy stacking and minimal shimming and gluing. This makes it easier to construct fire-resistant walls that are plumb and level.
The Benefits of The Perfect Block
The Perfect Block™ offers a number of benefits over traditional “stick framing” construction and other insulated concrete forms (ICF) systems or masonry blocks. These benefits include:
Durability: The Perfect Block™ is significantly more robust than stick-framed walls and can withstand up to 250 mph winds.
Insulation: A 10" Perfect Block™ wall offers four times more thermal insulation than walls constructed with 2x6 batt insulation.
Thermal Mass: The substantial wall thickness and density of the Perfect Block™ greatly augment thermal insulation, surpassing the standard of stick framing and traditional building.
Fire Resistance: The Perfect Block™ walls are non-combustible and highly resistant to high temperatures.
Termite/Insect Resistance: Termites, boring insects, and rodents cannot feed on the Perfect Block™, and there is no risk of dry rot.
Design Versatility: The Perfect Block™ wall material can be effortlessly cut and shaped into a variety of unique designs for both load-bearing and non-load-bearing walls.
Minimal Bracing: The Perfect Block™ is more dense and resilient than white block, necessitating minimal bracing to produce upright, level, and straight walls, thus saving time and money.
