Lightweight blocks for internal walls are designed to increase a building’s thermal efficiency. They also reduce labor costs.
Lightweight blocks are typically used in applications where strength is not an issue. Using lightweight units can save time and money, while reducing job-related injuries.
Concrete blocks are made of a mixture of cement and aggregate. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. Some units are hollow, which allows for wiring and other pipe work to be run through them.
Lightweight concrete blocks are commonly selected for infill applications. They are about 25 percent lighter than the same unit of conventional blocks. Because they are lighter, they are easier to handle.
Another advantage of lightweight concrete blocks is their insulating properties. They have better resistance to air permeability, making them more effective in reducing fires and smoke.
In addition, a lightweight block can be used for a variety of internal applications, including floors, ceilings, and partitions. It is a great solution for any project that requires structural support, because it offers an excellent surface for painting and plastering.
The internal structure of LECA(r) blocks ensures that they provide improved thermal and acoustic insulation. Compared to traditional building materials, LECA(r) is highly insulated and provides a lower U-value.
These lightweight blocks are available in a variety of sizes and styles, and are suitable for both external and internal walls. For internal walls, they can be used as a partition wall, a support wall, or a suspended floor.
