Advantages of AAC Blocks
- Eco-Friendly and Sustainable
- The AAC Blocks are 3 to 4 times lighter than bricks, 30% lighter than that of concrete which helps in reducing the dead load of the building, thereby allowing construction of taller buildings.
- Tiny air pores and thermal mass of blocks provide excellent thermal insulation, thus reducing heating and air conditioning costs of a building.
- As the AAC block is porous in nature, the sound absorption quality is superior. It offers sound attenuation of about 42 dB, blocking out all major sounds and disturbances which makes it ideal for schools, hospitals, hotels, offices, multi-family housing, and other structures that require acoustic insulation.
- AAC blocks can be easily cut, drilled, nailed, milled, and grooved to fit individual requirements.
- Lightweight blocks reduce the mass of a structure, thus decreasing the impact of an earthquake on a building. Non-combustible nature provides an advantage against fires, which commonly accompany earthquakes.
- Construction of AAC Blocks reduces the construction time by 20%. As different sizes of blocks help reduce the number of joints in wall masonry. The lighter weight of the blocks makes it easier and faster to transport, place, and construct the masonry.
The strength of ACC block ranges 3 – 4.5 MPa whereas the strength of clay bricks is between 2.5 and 3.5 MPa as per IS 2185 part 3.
