Insulite 'Standard' or 'Premier'

MEDIUM DENSITY CONCRETE BLOCKS

Insulite blocks are the perfect versatile, all-round building blocks. These medium density concrete blocks consist of up to 90% recycled raw materials, making them among the most environmentally friendly and sustainable building blocks available.

These high-quality blocks consist of a mixture of quality lightweight aggregates and are fully adaptable for all construction methods for housing and industrial buildings.

Insulite blocks are manufactured to BS EN 771-3 and are ISO 9001 Quality Assured, ISO 14001 Environmentally Certified and hold BES 6001 ‘Excellent’.

Insulite is also available in 2 finishes, the ‘Standard’ texture finish provides an excellent surface for mortars, renders and plasters, whereas the ‘Premier’ close textured finish provides a smoother surface, making this ideal for internal paint-grade applications.

APPLICATIONS

  • Internal partition walls.
  • Block and beam floor infill (7.3 N/mm² or above).
  • Walls below damp-proof course (DPC) (7.3 N/mm² or above).
  • Acoustic separating walls to Part E of the Building Regulations and Robust Details.
  • ‘Standard’ texture finish provides an excellent surface for mortars, renders and plasters.
