LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE MASONRY


Masonry units made with STALITE are significantly lighter and easier to install. Compared to heavyweight units of the same size, weight reductions of up to 30% can be achieved.

Unlike aggregates made from byproducts and waste, STALITE masonry materials are pure and produced under carefully controlled conditions to assure performance. In addition, the superior strength of STALITE particles make a significant contribution to the overall dimensional stability, reduced shrinkage and toughness of masonry walls. As a result, lighter yet stronger masonry walls can be built in less time.

PERFORMANCE BENEFITS

  • High structural strength
  • Lightweight
  • Consistent, controlled size gradation
  • Dependable performance
  • High productivity

BENEFITS of LIGHTWEIGHT MASONRY

Lightweight masonry units made with STALITE provide for:

  • high sound absorption,
  • high insulation values, 
  • high fire ratings,
  • and single wythe loadbearing walls that are finished on both sides.

These properties increase the intrinsic value of the investment and extend the life and utility of the structures.
