Lightweight block is a Concrete Masonry Unit (CMU) made of expanded aggregate to reduce the density and weight compared to standard concrete block.

Lightweight blocks are typically used in internal and external walls and applications that do not require the additional strength provided by dense aggregate blocks and where loading is slightly more restricted or as infill blocks in beam and block flooring.
 
Lightweight block may also be applied to a different technology known as Aerated Autoclaved Cement (AAC) block. The need for plastering can be eliminated for internal walls by utilizing AAC blocks.



Advantages:
 
  • LIGHT WEIGHT
AAC is less than one-fifth of that of normal concrete block and wall panel,  making it easily handled.
 
  • COST SAVING
With it lighter density and larger in dimension, it can reduce building design weight & faster construction for early completion of the project.
 
  • SPEED & WORKABILITY
Larger & lighter products mean reduced labour requirements & faster installation rates.
 
  • WATER RESISTANT
AAC contains millions of closed microscopic cells which strongly resist moisture from passing through. AAC is highly resistant to humidity and dampness from water.
 
  • FIRE RESISTANT
AAC Block and Wall Panel is renowned for its fire resistance properties and is more superior than traditional masonry for products with fire resistant up to 4 hours for a nominal block thickness of 100 mm. These AAC products are highly suitable for the areas where fire safety is great priority. 
 
  • NOISE RESISTANT
Solid wall construction means less noise from outside and lower room-to-room noise & therefore a much quieter building.
 
  • THERMAL COMFORT & ENERGY SAVING
AAC’s has excellent thermal insulation properties that result in improved comfort level and saves heating up 4 hours for a nominal block thickness of 100 mm. At the end of the day, it offers huge savings on air conditioning and energy costs.
 
  • ECO-FRIENDLY
AAC helps to reduce at least 30% of environmental waste, decrease 30% environmental waste, decrease 50% of greenhouse radiation and over 60% integrated energy on the surface of brick. It’s non-toxic in nature and does not exude gases.
 
  • SEISMIC RESISTANT
AAC reduces mass of structure, thus decreasing the impact of an earthquake on a building, The natural property it is made from is light in weight. This is turn increase the stability in the building structure.
