Walls of aerated concrete

Aerated concrete wall elements are widely used. The material is non-combustible, and, depending on the wall thickness, is capable to withstand a fire for more than 360 minutes. Depending on the application, the walls may remain unfinished, in principle. However, they also may be treated with a paint system or a decorative plaster.

Concrete International has various projects where aerated concrete wall elements are applied. Commonly, it is advised prefabricated concrete products with aerated concrete as “Dusseldorf’s security” used in industrial halls for fire and fire-resistant walls.
