Marmox Thermoblocks Used In New Construction Project for Affordable Housing

A Yorkshire based groundworks and civil engineering specialist is making innovative use of Marmox Thermoblocks in constructing the oversites across a development of over 100 affordable homes which will be craned into position as factory fabricated modules.

720 Thermoblocks in size 600 x 100 x 65mm were purchased for this project, along with some 50 cartons of Marmox’s versatile high-performance MSP-360 adhesive, used to bond their overlapping joints.

This well-proven installation method helps achieve the accurate alignment and stability necessary for the fabricated modules.

Marmox Thermoblocks are available in widths of 100, 140 or 215mm and are formed from sections of XPS encapsulating two rows of high strength, epoxy concrete mini-columns.

As well as combatting cold bridging where the inner leaf of masonry walls abuts the floor zone, Thermoblocks are also often utilised to support timber frame construction or at vulnerable upper floor junctions, including beneath parapet walls.
