Toplite GTI - high thermal insulation
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||200||215|
|Unit weight (kg)||4.5||5.2||5.6||6.3||6.7||9.0||9.6|
|Laid weight (kg/m²)||56||64||70||79||84||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
