Clayblock versus Light Steel Frame

  Light Steel Frame Clayblock®
Finishes Designed to be clad – typically with plasterboard to the internal face, insulated between studs, clear cavity and external skin of masonry or rain-screen. Cavity or monolithic walls designed to be clad with a wide range of finishes
Internal partitions Lighter sections for internal partitions may not be suitably robust for all applications. Clayblock® walls are suitably robust for use on all development types.
Thermal performance The light steel frame structure provides no contribution Contributes with regards to thermal mass and thermal conductivity.
Weatherproof Dependent upon cladding The external walling envelope is removed from the programmes critical path in providing a weatherproof structure.
Internal fit out Internal fit out cannot commence until external cladding has been installed Internal walls can be constructed with external inner leaf walls
