What is AH Block™?
AH Lightweight Insulation Block (AH Block™) is made from recycled LCD glass and does not contain any toxic by-products, such as asbestos or formaldehyde. It is a high quality, environmentally-friendly product. It is certified non-combustible, it has attained independent assurance of technical competence for acoustic insulation, thermal insulation, fire resistance, and has a certificate of product conformity in Australia, Singapore and Taiwan.
This product has undergone rigorous laboratory testing, and its performance is on-par, if not superior, to all other similar products that are currently available in the Australian market. AH Block™ is lightweight, easy to build, and 100% recyclable. It is used for non-loadbearing walls in residential, commercial buildings, schools, hospitals, laboratories, warehouses and the like.
Benefits of AH Block™
AH Block™ systems are non-combustible. The systems (non-loadbearing walls) have been tested and are proven to achieve Fire Resistance Levels (FRLs) of 120 minutes through to 240 minutes.
AH Block™ systems are highly efficient in reducing noise transmission between walls, creating a peaceful and quiet living space.
Environmentally Friendly and Economically Sustainable
The main component of AH Block™ is made from recycled LCD glass where it goes through a meticulous screening and pulverisation process. It can be 100% recycled with minimal use of virgin material.
Light Weight and Easy Build
AH Block™ weighs only 20-25 kg/m² and is significantly lighter than ordinary brick or concrete blocks. It has a systematic installation method making it easy to build, even for a person with limited building experience, without compromising on quality.
In actual overseas cases where AH Block™ systems are installed, the temperature difference between indoor and outdoor achieved ± 10°C. It out-performs other typical masonry products in terms of thermal insulation. The energy saving is more than 20%, hence saving on heating and cooling costs and contribute to a building’s Star rating.
Non-Toxic and Non-Hazardous
AH Block™ are completely free of any organic substances and toxic materials such as asbestos or formaldehyde, which are harmful to the human body, thus ensuring a safe working and living environment.
