Context

H+H  Aircrete blocks and the Thin-Joint method of construction were used for a robust, energy efficient self-build project. The site posed a number of logistical challenges, primarily the constrained size and shape of the garden plot. Therefore, aircrete’s inherent properties of being lightweight and easy to lay and manipulate on site proved ideal for the job.

Products supplied

A combination of H+H High Strength Jumbo Bloks (7.3Nmm2) and H+H Standard Grade Blocks (3.6Nmm2) with Celfix Mortar, designed specifically for use as part of H+H’s Thin-Joint System was selected. The minimal joint thickness achieved with H+H’s Thin-Joint System is ideal for achieving excellent energy efficiency as it allows for maximum airtightness and maximum thermal performance.

Comment

“I certainly liked using the products and found it relatively easy to build with them. I was also able to use up ‘offcuts’ from the aircrete blocks throughout the property – I found it very easy to cut the blocks on site.” Client

Outcome

H+H Aircrete is the perfect material for people who want to build their own home. Not only does it meet all the stringent requirements of Building Regulations, its inherent thermal, acoustic and load bearing capabilities makes it a building material that is second to none. In addition to being lightweight and easy to use, H+H Celcon Blocks also have the benefit of high resistance to fire, sulfate attack, frost and water penetration.
