Construction Technology used – Durisol Blocks
From the outset, the Durisol system was developed to give designers, spec iffier and contractors real flexibility with outstanding all round performance. The system offers a range of unique benefits and meets all current and planned regulations and recommendations for sustainable building construction. Based upon interlocking modular units (with or without integral insulation). Durisol walling units are dry stacked – without the need for a bed or mortar. The units are then in-filled with concrete to form a monolithic structural walling system. The external and internal faces are then completed with a finish applied directly to the Durisol wall surface.
- Durisol units contain recycled material (8 tonnes of waste in one standard house)
- The Durisol system has achieved a BRE Green Guide – A rating
- Durisol buildings have a high Thermal Mass (Concrete acts as a heat store) resulting in reduced energy costs
- The units are highly durable, with no decay or burn issues
- No waste during manufacture and Over 90% recycled material in every block
