Durox is a modern construction material, whose versatility, light weight, thermal and acoustic properties make it the ideal solution for a wide variety of applications in all types of building.
Durox can be used below ground in foundation walls, in suspended beam and block floors and in all types of internal and external walls. It provides many benefits for specifiers and contractors making it the natural choice where blockwork is specified.
Durox Supabloc combines low unit weight with high thermal insulation and acoustic performance in strengths of 3.6, 4.2, 7.3 and 8.7N/mm2.
- Cavity inner leaves
- Solid External Walls
- Solid Internal Walls
- Separating Walls
- Higher strength loadbearing walls
- Solid walls below DPC
- Cavity walls below DPC
Low unit weight
The light weight of Durox means more blocks per load, resulting in more environmentally-friendly transportation.
Fast building blocks
Independently monitored trials have demonstrated that Durox Supabloc is over 20% faster to build with than conventional size aircrete blocks and over 30% faster than dense blocks.
Easy to work
Cutting, chasing and finishing are all straightforward and quick to achieve using standard tools.
Excellent acoustic and thermal performance
Good U-values and Rw values, as well as Robust Details help specifiers more easily meet or exceed Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM requirements.
Due to fewer mortar joints, mortar savings of up to 22% can be made when compared to conventional size blocks.
At 620mm long, Durox is 40% longer than conventional size blocks, meaning they lay at 7 per m2 including mortar joints.
