Re: Aerated concrete block

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
My memory may be incorrect, but I think Hebler is out of Georgia or at least
has a facility there.  There is another manufacturer named Ytong.  I believe
they are located near Haines City, FL.  They have a design manual for their
system.

IIRC, the basic material has a lower strength per square inch of material,
but because it is solid, the total unit is comparable to cmu.
