The Thin-Joint System Our modern masonry package is an innovation. Our package is offered using our Thin-Joint System which has benefits to the smaller developer or self builder. In a Thin-Joint System the traditional mortar is largely replaced with a fast-drying, ultra-thin layer of cement-based Thin Layer mortar. The result is the robust, flexible and environmentally sound structure you expect from aircrete, but with a wall that can be built much faster, saving considerable cost on site.

All the walls included will be shown in our marked up version of your design drawings, for ease of reference. We appreciate that building a wall is not...

Structural Masonry Thin-Joint speed benefit The Thin-Joint method of masonry build has been around for many years in Europe and is growing in popularity in the UK. It is proving attractive because it offers an enhanced quality build, technical benefits and potential for greatly improved construction times and therefore reduced costs. Thin-Joint is faster because of the special Thin Layer mortar which is a vital component. This dries extremely quickly, providing a near full-strength bond in minutes and allows for storey height construction in a single day. For some single storey residential building...

The Rå Build method H+H has also pioneered a unique system of house building which is both dramatic in impact and simple in principle. We call it our Rå Build method of construction. Not forgetting the foundations Thin-Joint blockwork is only recommended for use above dpc. However, H+H also produce Foundation blocks which are laid in traditional mortar and offer a very robust, cost effective and simple solution below dpc. Our package estimates can also include a cost for Foundation Blocks if appropriate for your particular project. Rå Build works on the premise that, using Thin-Joint mortar, it...

H+H heritage H+H aircrete has been sustainably produced in the UK for over 60 years. Aircrete is a widely recognised and popular material choice for masonry build and is widely used in house building. Its lightweight nature and aerated cell structure makes it strong, yet easy to handle. H+H aircrete blocks are produced in a range of sizes that meet the regulatory health and safety weight requirements for one man to lift and lay. Our range of Celcon Blocks is still one of the best known and widely used masonry products and is still supplied to builder’s merchants and housebuilders today. Modern...
