Autoclaved aerated concrete was developed in Sweden in the late 1920s by Joan Axel Eriksson. A lack of wood, caused by forest decimation, created a need for an alternative building material. Eriksson's search required a highly-versatile material with excellent thermal insulation, solid structure and workability - the advantages of wood, but without the disadvantages - such as combustibility, termite damage and decay.
Fireproof: The perfect solution for fire safety, our product is noncombustible and offers up to 4 hours of protection against fires - the highest fire rating in the industry.
Energy Saving: Our thermal insulation properties can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs.
Sustainable: Our products are often recognized among the most environmentally sustainable building materials available. We combine lower materials and energy usage in manufacturing, with a range of environmental benefits.
Recyclable: By-products of AAC production, including hardening AAC waste and unhardened AAC mixture, are recycled back into the production process.
Breathable: Our products breathe, allowing the diffusion of moisture vapor which helps moderate moisture levels within a building by automatically absorbing and releasing moisture.
Non-Toxic: The finished product is completely natural, environmental friendly and non-toxic.
Lightweight: AAC is approximately 1/4 the weight of traditional concrete, saving freight and construction costs.
Precision: An established quality control program and stringent production tolerances, allow builders to save during finishing and achieve optimal structural performance.
Durable: Structures made with AAC are durable and will not degrade under normal atmospheric conditions.
Quickly-Installed: The lightweight nature and excellent workability of AAC makes it extremely quick to install on-site.
Easily-Worked: Our products can be sawn, drilled, and nailed using normal wood working tools, greatly increasing on-site productivity and creativity.
Versatile: Completely versatile, our products can be cut to any shape or angle, for use in a wide range of construction applications. From blocks for constructing load-bearing and non-bearing walls, roofs, wall and floor panels, to site and sound walls.
