Separating Walls
The range of Hemelite solid blocks can be used with a number of Robust Detail constructions, including those with fully filled cavities, avoiding the need for pre-completion testing. In addition these constructions may be used with various robust detail separating floors.

Loadbearing walls
Hemelite is available in a range of strengths from 3.6 to 10.4N/mm2 which make them suitiable for a variety of structural applications from domestic to commercial building.

Hemelite blocks are producted to comply with 'Category 1' manufacturing control to BS EN 771-1 to 16.

Fire
Hemelite blocks provide excellent periods of fire resistance which can satisfy building regulations and other imposed requirements e.g those of insurers. All Hemelite products conform to a fire rating of Class A1 to BS EN 13501-1:2002

Sound insulation
Hemelite blocks may be used to provide acoustic insulation between internal rooms to meet the requirements of Part E building regulations.
