Context

Sherborne Homes in Cheltenham, specified the Thin-Joint System, provided by H+H, for its housing association build. The homes were to have a bright, modern finish using large floor to ceiling windows.

The Thin-Joint System provided the Sherborne Homes contractors with a hassle-free building solution and a great support package that allowed for fast and effective construction. Sherborne Homes had used the H+H Thin-Joint System in previous building projects and were confident of again achieving pleasing results. 

Products used

H+H Thin-Joint System along with Celfix Mortar, Celcon Foundation Blocks and Celcon Plus Blocks.

H+H aircrete products were selected due to the rapid rate at which the internal leaf of the building could be constructed, allowing follow-on trades to start work sooner in a weatherproof environment, whilst retaining the flexibility of on-site construction.

Thin-Joint is recognised as a Modern Method of Construction: it is fully adopted as the preferred method of wall construction throughout most of Northern Europe.

Thin-Joint system benefits

  • Provides a fast watertight masonry shell to enable internal trades to start sooner
  • Meets or exceeds Part L and Part E of the Building Regulations
  • Simplifies the construction process
  • 80% recycled material
  • A+ rating in BRE Green guide
  • Thin mortar joints allow for fast setting and speedy build
  • All components for the system available off the shelf
  • Block-work is highly adaptable, allowing for any last minute design changes
  • Thin-Joint walls have airtightness of 1m3/hr/m2
  • Celfix mortar can be stored within footprint of building - small quantities mixed as required
  • Class 0 rating for surface spread of flame

Applications

  • Internal and external leaf in cavity walls
  • Solid walls
  • Separating / party walls
  • Flanking walls
  • Partitions
  • Multi-storey
  • Foundations
