Simprolit blocks for facade and partition walls clearly distinguish themselves from other Simprolit products by their unique relation between: quality - low thermal conductivity - durability -good soundproofing - good waterproofing - small weight of structure - cost-effectiveness.Read more
Types Simprolit blocks
Simprolit blocks have many advantages when compared to some of the extensively used similar materials based on light-weight concrete (blocks made of gas concrete - Siporex or expanded clay concrete blocks).
TYPES OF SIMPROLIT BLOCKS
Recently, as a standard thermo-insulation of facade walls, three-layer panels are used. These thermo-insulation panels have two layers consisting of polymer-cement glue applied over the glass-fiber net and finishing facade plaster, while the third - basic layer consists of so called "effective" isolators in the form of boards (styrofoam, mineral wool, etc.).
WALL CONSTRUCTION WITH SIMPROLIT BLOCKS
Simprolit blocks are fixed "dry" without plastering between the rows. Upper and lower surface of the blocks are even and the blocks have constant hight and accurate dimensions which means that there is no need for a thick plaster layer to level the wall surface. It also improves thermo-insulating properties of both the blocks and the complete wall. Hollow block cavities can be filled up with concrete, mortar or Simprolit - thus taking the role of a bonding element.
APPLICATION OF SIMPROLIT BLOCKS AS A PERMANENT FORMWORK
An additional advantage of Simprolit blocks that was already mentioned before is their possible application as a permanent thermoinsulating formwork. Namely, Simprolit blocks can be used as a formwork for reinforcement fitting and casting of horizontal and vertical ring beams, for window and door lintels, even for facade columns. Having in mind the fact that they are easily cut (even with a simple wood-saw) and brought to the required forms and dimensions, as well as their fire resistance, Simprolit blocks may also be used for building of a thermal and fireproofing protection coat around metal columns (if it is necessary, inner block cavities could be filled up with concrete - consequently offering a higher degree of fire resistance and much better corrosion protection).
