AAC BLOCKS ARE ALSO KNOWN AS CINDER BLOCKS, LIGHT WEIGHT CONCRETE BLOCKS, AERATED BLOCKS
- AAC is lightweight, about a fifth the weight of concrete. (It will float on water).
- AAC can be engineered for seismic and flooding conditions and for tornado and hurricane prone areas, subjected to severe wind loads.
- DURABLOC AAC is non-combustible with a UL fire rating of 4 hours for a 4 inch non-load bearing wall. Also, when exposed to fire AAC gives off no toxic gases. AAC can be an important material to consider when building in fire prone regions.
