Low density Celcon Blocks provide improved thermal conductivity

  • 1 Jun 2015

The thermal conductivity of the blocks is now 0.18 W/mK, down from 0.19, bringing about greater thermal performance whilst enabling U-Values to be reduced further and diminishing heat loss at junctions.

British Board of Agrément (BBA) has issued a new certificate issued to the manufacturer for the change.

Reducing the weight of the high performing blocks has been a primary focus for the H H production team.

The High and Super Strength Grade Celcon Blocks are available in thicknesses of 100mm, 140mm and 150mm – whilst the High Strength Grade Celcon Blocks are also available in a thickness of 215mm, weighing less than the HSE maximum block weight requirements of 20kg.

High and Super Strength Grade Celcon Blocks are typically used where higher compressive strengths are required. They can be used throughout a building, regardless of whether it is a cavity or solid wall; single or multi-storey build.

In addition, the blocks are ideal for separating and flanking walls as well as internal partition walls and foundations.

Cliff Fudge, technical director at H+H, discussing how reducing the weight of its large format blocks has been a long-term objective for the team: “We set out to make them easier and safer to handle on and manoeuvre around site but were conscious that we did not want to diminish the existing beneficial characteristics of the blocks.

““I am very pleased to say we have accomplished exactly what we set out to do. The blocks are essentially a lighter breed of the exact same product as before.

“The construction solutions they provide still meet, and in some cases exceed, all of the requirements set out by both Building Regulations and the NHBC in terms of fire ratings and acoustic and thermal performance.”
