Insulating casting blocks

Insulating casting blocks are ideal for very high walls and walls that bear heavy loads. They are an excellent solution for foundations and basement walls that have to withstand soil pressure. Since the insulation starts right from the pile cap, the height of earthfill does not have to be considered at the construction stage.

Erecting a house frame with casting blocks is quick and easy. Electrical wires, HVAC tubes, etc. can be inserted in the hollows of the casting block before casting.

The ME-400 block boasts the smallest consumption of ready-mix concrete on the market – just 11.4 litres per block – which means significant cost savings.

For single casting, the recommended mould height is 1.6 metres. When ordering concrete, you should mention that the concrete is intended for casting block application. The concrete mass has to meet the following requirements:

  • strength class at least K35-2, self-compacting and weather-proof
  • maximum grain size 8 mm
  • density 2,400 kg/m³

The blocks comply with the requirements of Part B9 of the Finnish Building Code and standard SFS-EN 15435.
