1. What is AAC wall cladding?
Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) is a lightweight concrete that is
formed into blocks and panels for a wide range of loadbearing and
non-loadbearing construction applications. It is manufactured from
silica sand, cement, recycled material, lime, gypsum, aluminium
paste and aerating agents. It is moulded, cut and steam pressure
cured in an autoclave before being packed, ready for transport.
2. Is AAC wall cladding a new building material?
Aerated Concrete Autoclaved (AAC) is an amazingly innovative
building material that has been used in Europe for more than 80
years and in the US for more than 15 years.
3.Where has AAC wall cladding been used?
It can be used ranging from low rise industrial/commercial
developments to high rise offices or medium density residential
4. Is AAC wall cladding a load bearing material?
The intensity of pressure for cube is more than 4mpa. The load
bearing capacity for one point is more than 1200N. The rebars within AAC panels are made according to computer
calculating force. As a non-loadbearing cladding, AAC panels can be
used under circumstances of pressure.
6.What are the benefits of AAC wall cladding over other building materials?
a.Cost effective - lightweight panels allow for reduced structural
components and smaller lifting equipment.
b. Excellent thermal resistance performance.
c. Acoustic performance - effective sound transmission barrier between
external and internal environments of the building.
d. Excellent fire rating properties.
e. No wet trades - less mess and a cleaner, safer work area.
f. Less wastage - significantly reduced waste as panels can be
custom-made to length requirements.
g. Fewer waste bins and less crane movements.
h. Design flexibility - panels can be easily cut and routed to suit
i. Panel lengths up to 6 metres.
j. Strong, secure and durable with corrosion protected
