THE WALL COMFORTABLE AND SOLID AS A ROCK...
...that does not crack in time. The LATERBLOC wall keeps its original appearance unchanged over the years, witnessing the exceptional robustness of this system that combines the solidity of traditional masonry with the convenience of a modern dry building system.
The internal brick core guarantees the perfect steadiness of the finished wall and a total absence of cracks even in presence of a strong tracing for the plants systems.
The gypsum coating ensures high living comfort for the relevant hygroscopic and thermal characteristics and for the acoustic abatement.
WALLS FOR BATHROOMS, KITCHEN AND HUMID ENVIRONMENTS
The blocks are also available in the HYDRO low-humidity-absorbing version, colored in blue to distinguish them from standard version. An exclusive mixture with water-repellent additives makes them particularly suitable for use in humid environments.
Absorption W = 2,6%
The HYDRO blocks have been tested according to UNI EN 15283-2.
We recommend always using HYDRO blocks for the first row in contact with the ground. In wet environments such as bathrooms, kitchens, cellars and underground garages, it is advisable to make walls entirely in LATERBLOC HYDRO.
ACTIVE FOR ENVIRONMENTAL HYGIENE
Environmental quality plays a key role in peoples well-being. Gypsum surfaces naturally fight bacteria. Laboratory testing results in a remarkable reduction of implanted colonies. The LATERBLOC walls are therefore particularly suitable for use in environments and places of high affluence.
GYPSUM AND 100% NATURAL GREEN BUILDING
Gypsum is a mineral made of calcium sulphate. It is an absolutely natural, odorless and non-toxic material. It has been appreciated for thousands of years in building for thermal and acoustic insulation and passive fire protection. In addition, gypsum regulates the interior humidity, thanks to its micropores which, if necessary, absorb humidity and, if the air becomes too dry, return it back to the environment.
LATERBLOC responds to the new biocompatibility requirements of buildings with particular reference to applications in the hospital construction industry.
ZERO VOC BEST AIR QUALITY
Gypsum is 100% natural and and does not release volatile organic pollutants (VOCs) such as Formaldehyde. Long-term exposure to VOCs contributes to the sick building syndrome, a phenomenon unfortunately very common in our homes as demonstrated by many authoritative studies.
