Available exclusively from Brick Services in the North of England and Scotland, Porotherm blocks are an A1 fire-resistant clay alternative to other building materials such as concrete, steel or timber.
Part of a multi-cellular walling system, Porotherm blocks provide our customers with a sustainable building solution, plus a multitude of performance, economic and time-saving benefits.
Porotherm blocks have been designed with unique interlocking vertical joints that do not require mortar. Additionally, the horizontal bed faces are manufactured with no more than 0.5mm tolerance, so only a thin layer of mortar is required when installing. This efficient installation process means that builders can complete up to 3 meters, or a storey, in single day.
How we can help
Cavity block system
The Porotherm cavity block system has been expertly designed for a number of building applications, including inner leaf brick faced walls, infill panels and partition walls.
Additionally, Porotherm cavity blocks are suitable for both load-bearing and non-loadbearing usage, making it incredibly versatile and suitable for a number of requirements across your project.
Combined with its quick buildability and versatility, the Porotherm system is also a drier construction material that uses up to 95% less water than other methods. The clay material also offers great fire resistance, thermal and acoustic insulation and a compressive strength of 10 N/mm2.
Monolith Block System
The Porotherm Monolithic System offers customers a water-tight structure, faster.
By employing the unique interlocking system in combination with these thicker monolith blocks, wall build up is achieved even earlier.
Even in these larger dimensions, Porotherm blocks are lighter than their concrete alternatives, allowing onsite workers to reduce their risk of repetitive strain injuries.
All of the Porotherm blocks comply with BS EN 771-1.
