ALTERNATIVES TO AERATED BLOCKWORK
Tuesday, August 13th, 2013
The Skene Concrete Division has stepped in to solve many national and local house builders supply problems by offering our 300mm Foundation block. There is a growing national shortage of aerated Foundation and super structure block work and the Skene group have a ready available alternative to the superlite blocks.
Skene Foundation blocks are 440 x 100 x 300mm and are 7.3n or 10.4n/mm2 in strength, considerably stronger than the 3.6n generally on offer with aerated. The blocks are below 20kg each and are produced locally at our works in Fife.
Skene also produce 2 ranges of medium dense blockwork, our Glentherm range has a density of 1300kg/m3 and our GlenEcoLite range with density of 1100kg/m3. These blocks offer considerably improved thermal performance over dense blocks.
All the ranges of blocks are readily available for delivery with a few days notice.
