BEETONN BLOX provide excellent ﬁre resistance to a building due their exceptional ﬁreproof qualities. Walls made of a minimum of 15cm thick BLOX could stand against ﬁre for up to 6 hours (1800 FHT)
Walls constructed with BEETONN BLOCK dramatically improve the behavior of a building during earthquakes, even powerful ones. The product's light weight (400-600 kg/m3) ensures that the foundations of a building are lightly loaded and its homogeneity helps to evenly distribute loads from skeletal building structure to its walls.
BEETONN BLOCK provides an effective sound insulation even in noisy environments.
Less construction waste due to solid structure and easy way to cut in smaller blocks with no waste. Better breathing wall giving a better internal environment compared to usually used materials.
Thanks to its exceptional ﬁre resistance and quick installation, BEETONN is an ideal material for ﬁreproof walls
BEETONN BLOX is up to 3 times lighter than a typical wall built with bricks and insulation. With a weight of 120kg/m2 (using 20cm thick BLOX) the system is much lighter than any conventional wall that weighs up to 360kg/m2.
BEETONN BLOX is considered among the top thermal insulation materials for load-bearing and non load-bearing walls due to its excellent heat capacity and the coefﬁcient of thermal conductivity with a value starting from λ10,dry = 0,096 W/mk (for density of 400 kg/m3 of BEETONN blocks), which helps to achieve class A energy performance certiﬁcate with walls of thickness less than 25cm and with no extra insulation, like extruded polystyrene.
Following the European Directive 2002/91/EC every time a building is sold or rented out, an energy performance certiﬁcate should accompany the deal. The usage of BEETONN signiﬁcantly lowers insulation costs of a new building, due its excellent thermal insulation properties. It also simpliﬁes construction works, because only one material and one construction team is needed.
5,6 blocks of 300mm height or 11.2 blocks of 150mm blocks are enough to build 1 m2 of wall of any thickness. Due to its dimensional accuracy, BEETONN provides high precision and levelled walls. It also dramatically increases the productivity of construction workers so that one workman helped by one assistant can build up to 25 – 30 m2 per day.
Stronger solid base for wall ﬁttings rather than hollow brick that cannot hold ﬁttings straight or with any strength.
