SPECIFICATIONS AND DATA

Coursing Blocks – Ash GP, Fibo, Lignacrete and Lignacite – SAVE TIME AND MONEY

Coursing Blocks are available for use in bonding and infill to ensure that a uniform thermal performance is achieved throughout the wall. Their use will save time and money by reducing the need for on-site cutting of full sized blocks, reduce waste and improve productivity. Compared to conventional brick size coursing units, Coursing Blocks are larger, meaning fewer units need to be laid and less mortar is used.

Coursing Blocks will also eliminate the risk of differential movement which can be caused when different materials are used in the same wall.

Standards

Coursing Blocks are manufactured to BS EN 771-3 under a BSI certified Quality System complying with BS EN 9001.

Technical Data

Coursing Blocks have technical properties similar to full size blocks. Refer to the respective Product Data sheets for information.

Applications

  • Infill above doors and windows
  • Coursing at floor and ceiling level
  • Making up between joists
  • High strength walls – unit strengths up to 22.5N/mm 2 in the Lignacrete range

Range and sizes
