Thin Joint Blockwork

Mortar sets in two hours

Thin joint blockwork is a fast, accurate, clean method of construction which uses aerated concrete blocks and special mortar.

It enables walls to be built very quickly: because the mortar sets very quickly (in one to two hours) there is no need to wait the conventional 24 hours before further loading can be applied to the walls.
