Knauf Insulation has collaborated with Robust Details to create a new detail specifically for aircrete blocks.
E-WM-30 is the first Robust Detail for aircrete blocks. A blown retrofit solution that negates the need for a wet parge coat; the detail requires nothing but a plasterboard lining, saving both time and money on site.
The product is made up of two leaves of 100mm aircrete blocks, with a 100mm cavity that has been fully filled with Supafil Party Wall, a blown mineral wool insulation by Knauf Insulation.
The detail achieves three points in the Health and Wellbeing section of the Code for Sustainable Homes assessments and complies with Part E1 of the Building Regulations in England and Wales.
E-WM-30 has been included within the latest edition of the Robust Detail handbook, released on the 21st September. The detail is the latest in an on-going programme of development of Robust Details that Knauf Insulation are working on.
