A simple measure of productivity highlights the stark contrast between Porotherm and
other methods – our precision clay blocks can be laid significantly faster.
With no mortar required in the vertical joints, and with each block precision-ground for
easy on-site use, Porotherm is designed for maximum build efficiency.
The structural performance of the Porotherm system reduces the variance of block
types and strengths required on-site. Furthermore, next day delivery from stockists
reduces storage requirements on-site.
Efficiency in the build programme
Although the price per square metre of block-work is comparable to other masonry
materials, the speed and efficiency that the Porotherm system offers on-site creates
substantial savings in virtually every area, starting with a clear reduction in preliminary
costs, and consolidated by reduced labour and mortar costs (due to the virtually dry
nature of the system).
+ The benefits begin with the foundations – since our blocks are considerably
lighter than concrete, foundation loads are lighter, which means structural, labour
and machinery costs can be reduced.
+ The increased laying speed means achieving a water-tight shell significantly more
quickly, allowing finishing trades to start work sooner.
+ With Porotherm, a project can be built to 2nd storey height without the normal need to
back up, so the external skin can be taken off the critical path. Actual height of build is dependent on exposure conditions and design to allow support during temporary conditions. The ultimate result is a walling system that is able to save both time and money throughout the build process, without compromising build quality or key sustainability criteria.
