Information from Celcon

H+H Celcon is the leading manufacturer of aircrete building materials within the UK. We strongly believe in the future of aircrete, which is why, we only make and sell quality aircrete solutions, and being committed to research and development, we have helped develop aircrete into the versatile building material of today.

Lightweight auto claved aerated concrete (aircrete) offers simple solutions that meet the demands of both the modern construction industry and today's Building Regulations. The benefits of aircrete are:

  • Thermal resistance - Reducing the need for additional insulation Celcon blocks offer significant cost savings at both time of build and energy use when complete.
  • Strength - Available in a range of grades up to 8.4N/mm2 aircrete has impressive load bearing capabilities, making them suitable for single and multi storey build.
  • Sound Insulation - With both Robust Detail and Pre-Completion Testing solutions houses, flats and apartments, aircrete's excellent sound insulation properties make it ideal for controlling noise transmission.
  • Fire resistance - Independently certified as non-combustible they have a class O resistance to surface spread of flame, the highest classification.
  • Sulfate resistance - Celcon Foundation blocks can be used below DPC in either solid or cavity format and are approved for use in soil conditions up to DS4.
  • Resists Damp penetration - The millions of non-interconnecting air bubbles within one Celcon block result in a high resistance to moisture ingress.
  • Frost resistance - The micro-cellular structure of Celcon blocks offers remarkable protection against the effects of frost.
  • Workability - Lightweight, easily worked, easily finished and easily fixed to.

Celcon blocks are available in different grades (Standard, Solar and Hi-Strength) to suit all applications, offering a selection of strength and thermal insulation properties depending on applications they will be used for. The Applications that Celcon
blocks can be used for are:

  • Foundations - they can be used in cavity and solid solutions. Fully loadbearing yet relatively lightweight they are BBA certified for use below DPC.
  • Walls - they can be used in cavity (as both the internal and external leaf of blockwork), solid, internal, party and flanking wall solutions.
  • Floors - used as infill blocks within beam and block flooring systems, Celcon's new flooring block reduces the number of beams needed without compromising the strength or quality of the floor.

Celcon Thin-Joint System

This combines Celcon's Plus blocks (a range of high quality dimensionally accurate aircrete blocks), with Celfix, a specially developed thin layer mortar. Celcon's thin joint system can be used to increase productivity offering a comparable build time
as framed construction, and improved thermal and sound performance.
