The lightweight building blocks that the trade prefer.
Lightweight concrete blocks are recognised by bricklayers as their preferred block of choice to lay due to being approx. 40% lighter than conventional building blocks. Lightweight blocks are quicker to lay, cost-effective and cheaper to freight than competing products, each block has hollow cores for the mortar to bond into which ensures maximum bond strength. Lightweight 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. The blocks have a compressive strength of 12mpa and are a sustainable product as they are manufactured with lightweight ash aggregates.
Lightweight twin height 230mmL x 162mmH x 110mmW “Superbricks” are available for rendering projects. Render and texture applicators save valuable time on preparation costs because they are true to size: the blocks are ready to render with guaranteed size tolerances which exceed the Australian standards.
