light concrete blocks are used in a variety of construction projects. They are a versatile, environmentally-friendly building material that can be used in exterior load bearing walls, internal partitions and floors.
The materials that make up these lightweight blocks are a mixture of sand, gravel and cement. They are manufactured in a kiln and are then cast into molds.
A block made with Lite-Rock is five pounds lighter than one made with a traditional weight aggregate, such as limestone or gravel. The reduced weight increases jobsite efficiency and production, improving safety and limiting wear-and-tear on masons.
In addition to the obvious benefit of being lighter, Lite-Rock also has significant advantages over standard concrete block. It is more durable, which means it can stand up to weather conditions better and will last longer.
They are also eco-friendly, which means they reduce 30% of environmental waste and 50% of greenhouse emissions while also helping to improve energy efficiency.
These blocks are more resistant to fire and sound than normal concrete, which makes them an ideal choice for interior walls.
There are a wide range of lightweight concrete blocks available on the market, each with different strengths and qualities. Some have holes that take up a portion of the block’s surface, making them ideal for running wiring or piping through them.
Another type of light concrete block is aerated autoclaved block, or AAC. This type of concrete is 80% air, which makes it easier to shape and work with. It also offers a high degree of insulation for temperature and sound, making it a good choice for both indoor and outdoor construction projects.
