Introduction to Porotherm

The Porotherm Clay Block Walling System is the UK's latest building trend, offering a faster and drier construction process than traditional masonry.

Porotherm is our precision clay block walling system - a modern method of construction with reassuringly traditional values.
It’s revolutionising the UK construction industry through exceptionally fast, virtually dry construction combined with high strength and thermal efficiency.  It is safe and simple to use as well as efficient for stockholding and storage.
The heart of the system – and the secret of the speed and efficiency – is the precision engineered clay block.  A unique interlocking design removes the need for mortar in the vertical joint, while consistent manufacturing quality allows for true 1mm bed joints.
Used successfully for decades across Europe, and now well-established as an ideal building solution for UK working conditions, Porotherm can be used in load-bearing and non load-bearing applications and is ideal for:
•                            Inner leaf of brick-faced cavity walls
•                            Inner and outer leaves of rendered cavity walls
•                            Infill panels within framed structures
•                            Partition walls and separating walls
•                            Single leaf (monolithic) internal and external walls
With its lean laying process and rapid daily output, Porotherm brings cost and time saving benefits throughout the build, while its thermal and acoustic efficiencies bring further advantages for decades to follow – the expected lifespan for a Porotherm wall is over 150 years.
