Advantages of Foamed Concrete Blocks Walls
Concrete (FC) blocks are lightweight and can be easily produced according
to different densities wherever it is needed ( factory or on- site )
therefore saving in transportation cost. Is a cement based product and
compatible with jointing mortar / plastering other parts of the concrete
- Due to its
cellular structure, FC blocks has good thermal insulation and high fire
resistance. Buildings with FC blocks are much cooler compared to normal
- FC blocks
also has a lower water absorbtion compared to other types of lightweight
blocks , uses less plaster and can be used for external and internal walls
insulation and absorbtion is better than some very ligthweight materials especially if the are used
as internal walls / partitions. With good design it can be used to absorb sound .
- FC blocks are
light and with bigger sizes so that construction and building rates are
much faster. It is also more rigid and robust compared to other types of
lightweight construction and suitable for high rise buildings.
plastering and jointing mortar is used during construction ( since blocks
are smoother & bigger than normal bricks ) providing a smoother wall finish
at reasonable cost.
