For even greater energy savings and greater mechanical strength, KEBE presents the ORTHOBLOCK series of thermal insulating blocks and ORTHOBLOCK PLUS filled with graphite EPS, ideal for load bearing as well as non-load-bearing masonries.
Their special design that allows interlocking along with their high mechanical strength, offer high structural stability and multiply its anti-seismic characteristics (absorption of seismic energy without damage). The heat-generated shell made of clay is an excellent passive system of switching heat and humidity that allows the optimum use of energy, natural ventilation and day-night temperature switching to achieve great thermal comfort inside the building with minimal energy consumption.
The construction is done with ease and speed (the interlock ensures their correct placement and requires only 16 pcs / m2), they are easily cut to the desired dimensions, have special handles for ease in transport and installation and offer great economy in heating and air conditioning. They are accompanied by thin-layer mortar and metal lintels.
