Lightweight Concrete Blocks
Lightweight concrete blocks are sustainable, being manufactured from recycled aggregates and are recognised by bricklayers as their preferred block of choice to lay. Weighing 40% lighter than conventional building blocks, WH&S risks and lifting injuries are therefore reduced. Lightweight concrete blocks are quicker to lay, cost-effective and importantly, cheaper to freight than competing products. Additionally; each block has hollow cores for the mortar to bond into which ensures maximum bond strength. The blocks have a textured but even surface finish are supplied in various widths and size configurations to suit a number of needs such as foundation walls or rendered projects. Finally, the blocks have a compressive strength of 12mpa and are a sustainable product as they are manufactured with ash aggregates.
Lightweight render bricks 230mmL x 162mmH x 110mmW are available for rendering projects. Render and texture applicators save valuable time on preparation costs because they are true to size: the bricks are ready to render with guaranteed size tolerances which exceed the Australian standards.
