The Aircrete Products Assocation provide effective solutions for walls, floors and below the ground. The high level of performance achieved by aircrete blocks, combined with an extensive product range, ensures that cost-effective solutions for wall, floor and below ground constructions can be achieved.
An independent report, undertaken by calfordseaden (construction and property consultants), has proven that masonry construction is up to 8% cheaper than timber frame and SIPS.
The product covered in this EPD is a generic 1m³ of precast aerated concrete blocks. Aerated concrete blocks, commonly referred to as Aircrete, are lightweight, autoclaved, thermal insulation blocks. Aircrete is normally used as internal masonry but is also used in external, cavity, foundation and separating party walls in houses and other buildings.
Aircrete products are fire resistant, moisture resistant, frost resistant. durable, strong and have excellent thermal performance.
Aircrete blocks are an environmentally friendly sustainable building material offering many benefits in construction that add to the sustainable credentials of a project, including thermal insulation, thermal mass and air-tightness.
Aircrete offers the lightest form of masonry construction due to millions of tiny air bubbles formed by a chemical reaction during the manufacturing process... find out more
