Available in Standard Grade (3.6N/mm²) and High Strength Grade (7.3N/mm²), Foundation Blocks can be used to support 3 storey constructions. They are suitable for the support of solid or cavity walls, framed construction or suspended floors, including beam and block.
They offer the following benefits in use:
- Enhanced thermal performance:
their use reduces heat loss from ground floors
- Frost resistance:
they have exceptionally good resistance to freeze/thaw conditions
they weigh one third of an equivalent dense aggregate block
- Reduced costs:
an independent report by Davis Langdon LLP concludes Celcon Foundation Blocks are up to 24% cheaper than dense aggregate block
- Speed of construction:
Celcon Foundation Blocks enable a quick and reliable construction as only one wall has to be set out and there is no need for wall ties or lean mix fill.
