Product Application & Characteristic Data
Siporex solid blocks are used as load-bearing and non load-bearing walls and as thermally insulating roof tiles in addition to being used as Hordi blocks or infills for ribbed slabs. They are produced with very precise dimensions with slim tolerance of ±3mm for thickness and width, therefore they are able to be laid by thin-bed mortar (Siporex glue) with a maximum of 3mm thick mortar joint. This results to a high quality wall structure with uniform thermal insulation and fast installation.
Masonry Blocks Dimensions
For the past decades, LCC Siporex had been supplying AAC blocks with a standard face size of 25 cm high x 60 cm long only in various thicknesses. However, due to the increasing demand and growing popularity of the use of AAC blocks, LCC Siporex have started the production of new dimensions of blocks in line with the continued expansion of additional manufacturing plant to sustain the market requirements. Siporex blocks are now produced at the following standard sizes:
Standard face size: 25 cm high x 60 cm long: | Thickness: 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 cm
Standard face size: 20 cm high x 60 cm long: | Thickness: 10, 15, 20, 30 and 40 cm
Hordi blocks or infill blocks for ribbed slabs can be produced in various dimensions to form lightweight infill between in-situ reinforced concrete ribs designed to span in one or both directions. Due to their excellent bondage to in-situ concrete, Siporex Hordi blocks are easily arranged to form permanent part of the slab, providing excellent thermal insulation as well as fire resistance material. Hordi blocks are produced with density of 450 kg/m3 according to the following dimensions:
Length : 60 cm
Width : 37/38 cm or 40 cm
Thickness : 20, 25, 30, 35 cm
Other sizes may be produced upon request only.
Hordi blocks are not available in stock and are manufactured against order only.
Thermal Insulating Tiles
Roof insulation of existing conventional roof can still be improved with the use of Siporex thermal insulating tiles available at the following dimensions:
60 x 60 x 7.5 cm
60 x 25 x 7.5 cm
60 x 25 x 5 cm
Other dimensions can be produced upon request.
Packing Data for Siporex Blocks
Siporex blocks are delivered ready for use and packed in easily transportable wooden pallets. The pallets should be unloaded at the site by construction-site cranes, forklifts or other suitable hoisting equipments. For ease in unloading of materials, it is suggested to order Siporex blocks in whole bundle or pallet volume to avoid handling loose quantities. Following table is an easy reference in making order of some standard sizes of Siporex blocks in bundles or pallets.
