These days the blockwork wall is often referred to as a breeze blocks wall. They are also referred to as cinder blocks are made of cement that is mixed with artificial aggregates such as granular or foamed blast furnace slag, or less common pumice stone.
Foundation blocks are an extremely popular and relatively cost-effective and easy way to build a garden wall, patio screens or carports, some people use them as an indoor decorative wall.
The range of thermal conductivity, strength, and density of thermalite blocks is so wide that there is aircrete thermalite block for almost any application whether it is for interior or exterior wall constructions.
Can Thermalite blocks be used for Garden Walls?
This guide will examine the important factors that need to be considered when planning to build a breeze block wall.
- Quality of materials
- The thickness and the size
- The type and the style
- The Newton rating
- The finish cladding paint or render
The thermalite block price will also depend on the area you leave in and planning to complete your project. When starting a blockwork project, it is necessary to consider several factors:
Planning permission for instance is required for a garden wall that is a meter high and is located next to a highway. There are some exemptions, such as if there was already a structure built of the same height – so it considered like for like replacement – in this case, the planning permission and investment decisions might not be required.
Bear also in mind that you will require to take care of the waste, in some cases you will require to hire a skip in other situations you might need just a heavy-duty bulky waste bag.
It is quite unlikely that you will ever regret using thermalite blocks in the construction project as their durability, strength and increased thermal insulation rates and frost resistance will make it possible to use these blocks in a wide range of construction projects from building residential buildings to garages and batch construction.
To make sure you select the right thermalite block for your project you can either refer to the guide above or simply get in touch with MGN Builders Merchants who offer a piece of full technical advice by qualified team members with advanced knowledge on the use and applications of thermalite blocks including thermal calculation.
