Building products of the future

AH Lightweight Insulation Block is made from recycled LCD glass that originally contained components such as silicon oxide and aluminium oxide (alumina). The LCD glass is treated through a meticulous process under a controlled environment to achieve the desired end-product. Alumina in its natural form can be found in rubies, sapphires and other rare gems and is widely used as an abrasive for its hardness and strength.

A component like silicon oxide has low coefficient of thermal expansion with minimal reaction to temperature changes. It also has low thermal conductivity and is a great component for heat-resistant materials.

The AH Block system is easy to handle and quick to build with its simple installation method. Suitable for builders who care about efficiency without compromising work quality, and businesses and home owners who care about quality lifestyle that is environmentally friendly and economically sustainable.

The future of building products


Superior Fire Resistance

AH Block non-loadbearing wall systems are superior for its fire-resistant performance and is non-combustible.

The 92mm AH Block has been tested and proven to achieve Fire Resistance Levels (FRLs) of over 240 minutes, exceeding all other similar building products that are currently on the Australian market, making it a product of a brighter future.

Highly Efficient Noise Reduction 

The BCA minimum noise reduction index requirement for ‘habitable’ adjoining walls is 45 dB and 92mm AH Block can easily achieve or even exceed that requirement depending on the wall finishes. It also reduces noise transmission from external source such as vehicle noise, providing a peaceful and comfortable living and working environment.

Environmental Protection and Waste Recycling 

The main component of AH Block is made from recycled LCD glass, where it goes through a rigorous recycling process to achieve a high-quality product. It can be 100% reused with minimal raw materials sourced from the natural environment.

This process has significant lower environmental impact and produces less greenhouse emissions compared to concrete or brick, making it a truly sustainable building product.

Lightweight and Easy Build 

92mm AH Block weighs only 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. The galvanised steel frame system provides a great solution in terms of speed and ease of construction and undoubtedly makes it a product builders will love.
