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 Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (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.
