Best described as an ‘adult version’ of our thin joint bed block system and our preferred system of construction. It has all of the same qualities as other thin joint blocks (which means our labour easily transfers) but it comes in an even larger format that is even quicker to install with a mini crane.
The key benefit of the Xella Silka Element System is the speed of construction. Fast, accurate and clean, this method of construction which uses large format blocks and special fast drying mortar. The mortar sets within 1-2 hours, so no need to wait for the conventional 24 hours before further loading can be applied to the walls.
