The Porotherm masonry system from Wienerberger is now being distributed in East Anglian bytimber and builders’ merchant, Ridgeons.
Porotherm offers contractors significantly increased construction speeds, leading to quicker completion, due to easy to handle lightweight blocks, fast setting joints that enables first fix to begin sooner, and intrinsic strength of 10N/mm2 that allows virtually unrestricted build heights.
The precision engineered blocks are 100 per cent recyclable and are highly thermally efficient, and the system itself uses up to 95% less water on site, thanks to the use of specialist thin bed joint mortar.
Ridgeon product group manager, Allen Coote, said: “We are consistently looking to work with new suppliers that can provide our customers with high quality products that help them to meet all UK building regulations and sustainability standards, such as Porotherm. The system has a fantastic European pedigree where it has been popular for more than 30 years, and we look forward to working with the Porotherm team to ensure this product flourishes in the UK.”
