Architect FAQs

What are the design possibilities and/or limitations with ECO-Block?

There are few limitations with ECO Block as it is simply a formwork system. It is light and easy. You create the shape and fill the void with reinforcing steel and concrete. It can also be shaped or curved to suit any design. 
The solid concrete core in an ECO-Block wall can be anywhere from 100mm to 600mm thick and is substantially stronger than a traditional masonry wall. Combined with increased insulation values means that you can have larger door and window openings than a traditional masonry wall in a conventional building. All of the lintels and structural elements can be inside the wall cavity. Floors can also be cantilevered over ECO Block walls ( refer to the Designers & Engineers Manual) 
Eco Block also has furring strips every 200mm in the panel, which allows you to screw fix directly into both sides of the block and attach any finish, i.e. plasterboard or render or timber to the inside or custom orb, brick veneer, stucco and stone or render to the outside. ECO Block offers the most significant design scope, with the greatest strength the higher energy savings. There is no limit to style or form. 

What is included in the ECO Block wall system?

ECO Block is a 3-piece wall system that includes Panels, Connectors & Braces 

  • Insulated Panels EPS formwork with Fixing strips at 200mm centres 
  • Connectors hold the panels together and determine block width 
  • Braces/Scaffold Support the wall during pouring and adjust alignment
    The panels are made of lightweight, high-density EPS and can easily be cut or moulded with basic hand tools. The blocks are quickly assembled by clicking the connectors to the panels stacked in place. Reinforcing steel is then placed where required, the wall is then braced for support. A pre-pour check is completed, the new wall is filled with concrete and realigned. That’s It!!
    Interior linings and Exterior cladding can now be directly fixed to the wall conventionally.
