DESCRIPTION

A general purpose building block of medium density manufactured from selected quality blended lightweight aggregates. Suitable for a wide range of applications in load bearing and non-load bearing construction. The standard block has a textured face which is an ideal key for plastering, rendering and drylining and readily accepts most types of fixings. Paint grade blocks are available for walling to receive a decorative finish.

SIZES & STRENGTHS

Donlite is a solid block with plain ends, a working face size of 440mm x 215mm, and is available in thickness’ of 100mm,140mm,190mm or 215mm. Dimensional tolerances comply with the requirements of BS EN 771-3 Strengths available are 3.6n, 4.2n, 7.3n and 10.4n.

FOUNDATION BLOCKS

The Donlite 7.3n foundation block, which is manufactured with useful finger-grips has been proven to be both efficient and economical. Size: 300mm x 275mm x 140mm.

DENSITY
