Thin Joint Masonry | Calcium Silicate Blocks

Thin Joint Blockwork Systems > Calcium Silicate
Thin Joint Masonry
Calcium silicate blocks have proven themselves in use over decades. The calcium silicate block, a rediscovered classic among building materials, today enjoys tremendous popularity.

Thanks to high pressure resistance, even the thinnest walls made of Silka calcium silicate blocks are highly resilient. Non-combustible, frost-resistant, weatherproof Silka calcium silicate blocks offer an optimal solution to ensure the stability and longevity of buildings.  

Sound in the form of noise is one of the few elements of structural physics occupants can directly sense. Thanks to high bulk density, Silka calcium silicate blocks are exceptionally sound-absorbent, guaranteeing a quiet, relaxing living environment.   

Manufacturing calcium silicate blocks requires comparatively little energy. The production process is environmentally friendly, causes no noise pollution, and is not otherwise hazardous to health. Sand and gravel pits can be recultivated after mining or used as natural habitats or recreational areas.   More information on calcium silicate building blocks, chamfered blocks and wall elements can be found below.  

Clan Thinset mortar KS is approved for use with Silka calcium silicate blocks. The precise tolerance that Silka calcium silicate blocks are manufactured to allows Clan Thinset mortar to be used with only a 2mm or 3mm joint. This fast setting mortar ensures a structurally sound and virtually airtight wall in next to no time
