16″ o.c. ladder design positions cross rods on web of block to allow core clearance. This simplifies rebar installation; centering utilizes strength of grout. Allows unrestricted flow of grout or loose fill insulation into CMU cells. Minimizes re-setting of joint reinforcement around rebar. Improves resistance to shrinkage cracking. Provides stronger bond with cross rods in web of block. Less time devoted to rebar installation, grout pouring.
