Porotherm

The benefits in a nutshell
1

Fast

Due to the interlocking precision design, the lighter weight compared to other materials and the specialist tools, such as the mortar roller, Porotherm is very quick to build with.
2

Dry

Construction with Porotherm uses around 95% less water than construction used in traditional methods.
3

Strong

The compressive strengths of Porotherm’s core range are typically 10 N/mm² , which is more than standard concrete blocks that are usually around 7 N/mm².
4

Safe

Porotherm blocks are generally lighter than concrete blocks, allowing workers to maintain steady production rates without the risk of repetitive strain injuries.
5

Sustainable

Used for thousands of years in construction worldwide, clay remains the most sustainable solution for modern buildings. Clay is an inert material that provides no risk to either the environment or end-user.
6

Efficient

Thermally efficient in helping to regulate variations in temperature; air-tightness is maximised with a parge coat or wet plaster on it's inner face.
7

Versatile

Porotherm can be used for monolithic and cavity wall construction and provides an airtight yet breathable solution using a fabric first approach. It is a strong, stable, adaptable method of construction which allows flexibility in the choice of external facades and systems.
