Autoclaved aerated concrete blocks and panels

SafeCrete blocks and panels, made from autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC), are noncombustible, inorganic, dimensionally accurate, and durable. The cellular structure of the material provides remarkable thermal and sound insulation. AAC products have been used in Europe since the 1920s and are among the most prevalent building materials in the world today.

SafeCrete blocks can be used for residential or small commercial construction. The light weight and workability of SafeCrete enable quick and safe installation, and the product has excellent thermal properties.

Jumbo units, which are set into place with a small crane, are recommended for larger projects. Product cost per square foot is the same, and installation is approximately fifty percent faster. Wall panels provide a fast, strong solution for very large projects with fewer openings, such as warehouses and big-box stores. The increased material cost is offset by fast installation. Floor and roof panels are used both commercially and residentially for spans up to 20 feet. These panels provide fire resistance and sound resistance between floors.
