AAC Blocks

Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) is a lightweight, load bearing, high insulating, durable building product which is produced in a wide range of size and strengths.
AAC block is lightweight and compare to red bricks AAC blocks are three times lighter.
AAC Blocks and its details and benefits

The Autoclaved Aerated Concrete AAC material was developed in 1924 in Sweden. It has become one of the most used building material in Europe and is rapidly growing in many other countries around the world. AAC is produced from the common materials lime, sand, cement, and water, and a small amount of Admixture having property of air-entrapping admixture. There are no aggregates used. Instead milled sand is used , which is inert when used in dense concrete, behaves as a pozzolan in the autoclave due to high temperature and pressure. After mixing and molding, it is then autoclaved under heat and pressure to create its unique properties.
At the point when AAC is blend and cast in structure, a few compound responses occur that give AAC light weight and warm properties. AAC blocks is unique and excellent type of building material due to super heat, fire and sound resistance.

AAC block are lightweight and offers ultimate workability, flexibility and durability:

AAC offers incredibility opportunities to increase building quality and at the same time reduce costs at the construction site.
They are light and have bigger size than brick of same weight and less masonry is required. The water absorption of the block is far less than the bricks hence good for any weather condition.
The flexibility of the block can be known by how easily they can be cut in to perfect shape and be placed any shape and size.

Timber Buildings !?

Timber Buildings !?  Why do we need a timber building? Yes, timber buildings. As on earth human population is on an exponential rise, many and many people are trying to get home in a city where they have easy excess for the workplace for their own living. In the near future, as the population gets more concentrated in cities more and more structures I mean Tall Structures need to be built. Loading Bearing and Comparison So now architects and builders have opted for old Technic of using timber as a building material eliminating concrete and steel. Yes, it is very hard to find this amount of trees but not impossible. It can be grown and regrown as needed. Many projects have been in progress of this idea and it reduces about 75% of carbon emission as compared to concrete and steel structure.



Using timber coming directly from the forest doesn't have the appropriate strength required for a high rise building. So designers came up with the new idea of CLT i.e. Cross Laminate Timber which …
