Toplite GTI - high thermal insulation

Back

Toplite GTI - Aircrete Block 

Toplite GTI blocks provide high insulation properties making them particularly suitable for external wall applications where low U-values are required. They may also be used in situations where it is important to construct walls with low self-weight.

 

Toplite GTI working dimensions

Face dimensions (mm) are 440mm long x (various widths) x 215mm high.

 

Block widths and weights

Block width (mm) 100 115 125 140 150 190 200 215
Unit weight (kg) 4.5 5.2 5.6 6.3 6.7 8.5 9.0 9.6
Laid weight (kg/m²) 56 64 70 79 84 107 113 121

 

Unit and laid weights, which are given for design purposes, are approximate and calculated based on the specified dry density with a 3% moisture content by weight added to provide equilibrium weights.

Toplite GTI applications

  • Inner leaf of cavity walls
  • Outer leaf of cavity walls, where cladding is to be used
  • Solid external walls, clad or rendered
  • Foundation walls - inner leaf
