Anyone use this CMU for one of your projects? Per the manufacturer's literature, it appears to have the same strength properties as a "typical" CMU unit except that it's opened ended and slots occur atop the interior webs to allow horizontal rebar placement. I suspect that the material cost would be higher that the "typical" CMU unit but that labor cost savings may be realized since the unit is open ended to allow for the vertical rebar.
