Newly published Robust Details from H+H UK Ltd show that separating walls built using H+H aircrete blocks can easily surpass Building Regulation requirements, achieving the enhanced performances required for 3 credits under the Code for Sustainable Homes or 4 EcoHomes credits.
H+H aircrete party walls not only offer excellent acoustic performance but can also significantly reduce heat losses at thermal bridges where the party walls penetrate the external fabric insulation (for example, at ground floor or roof level).
The recent publication of aircrete Constructive Details enables designers and their Energy Assessors to fully utilise these inherent benefits, resulting in potential savings to insulation elsewhere, or other CO2 reducing measures.
H+H has published a technical document with more information on how H+H aircrete can assist the construction of separating walls. It can be downloaded from the thumbnail on the right-hand side.
