Application Details

For general use in walls above and below ground and in beam and block floors. They offer high loadbearing potential, excellent sound insulation and are extremely robust and durable. They are ideal for finishing with render, cladding, plaster or drylining.

Separating Walls
The range of Topcrete solid blocks can be used with a number of Robust Detail constructions, including those with fully filled cavities, avoiding the need for pre-completion testing. In addition these constructions may be used with various robust detail separating floors.

Loadbearing walls
Hemelite is available in a range of strengths from 3.6 to 22.5N/mm2 which make them suitiable for a variety of structural applications from domestic to commercial building.

Fire
Topcrete blocks provide excellent periods of fire resistance which can satisfy building regulations and other imposed requirements e.g those of insurers. All Topcrete products conform to a fire rating of Class A1 to BS EN 13501-1:2002

Sound insulation
Topcrete blocks may be used to provide acoustic insulation between internal rooms to meet the requirements of Part E building regulations.

Topcrete blocks are producted to comply with 'Category 1' manufacturing control to BS EN 771-1 to 16.
