Geolite

Advantages of GEOLITE Lightweight Concrete Bricks

Lite
Lightweight -
• Steel & Cement requirement in structure is less due to less weight of wall construction results in savings
up to 15% of total project cost.
• Facilitates construction of unplanned walls anywhere & anytime.
• Three times less weight than clay or fly ash bricks and Blocks have an average compressive strength >3.0 N/mm2
Fire
Fire resistance -
• Thermal insulation performance is 5 times better than clay bricks & 10 times better than RCC
• With a just 100 mm thickness of wall 700kg/m3, GEOLITE Bricks offers fire endurance for heat transmission for Long hours without releasing any toxic fumes.
Weather
Weather & Earthquake resistance -
• Water absorption of GEOLITE bricks is relatively lower than any other materials. It is < 20 % for a density of 700 kg/m3.
• Closed cell structure of GEOLITE bricks reduces water absorption, So, No more Damp spots on the wall.
• Lower water absorption property of these blocks will help to reduce cracks in walls
• The lightness of the material increases resistance against earthquake
Soundproof
Sound Insulation -
• Due to porous structure, it gives very high sound insulation
• It is ideal in construction of schools, hospitals, amphitheaters. Etc.
energy
Energy Savings –
• Less Electricity for AC/Heater. Due to Good thermal Insulation Property.
• Pollution free. Least energy requirement on production.
Eco

Environment Friendly -
• GEOLITE bricks are manufactured with fly ash - 100% recycled resource.
• Valuable Soil is not consumed.
• Very Less energy used for manufacturing.

Life
Longer Life -
• Compressive strength increases with age.
• Typical Life is about approximately Double than Clay bricks
Savings
Money Savings -
• Economical in transportation, reduction in Manpower. Due to Less weight & Larger Size
• Significant reduction of overall weight results in savings on structural frames, footings or piles (Steel And Cement).
Such savings are often the multiple of the actual cost of the material itself.
• Decrease in number of joints and accurate dimensions of blocks, reduces cement mortar, plastering and Precious
time & cost of labor.
• The bricks can be sawed, drilled and shaped like wood using standard hand tools, regular screws and nails.
It is simpler than brick or concrete. So less wastage.
• By using 6 inch block in place of 9 inch brick, customer gets an additional 2% - 3% carpet area. The savings on
account of additional carpet area gained is more than cost of bricks
• Savings in construction cost can be as much as 13-15% when using GEOLITE Lightweight blocks, as
compared to clay bricks after considering resulting saving in steel, structure, cement, sand, gravel, etc.
