The Process

The key to the success of the system is good preparation and workmanship during construction.

The monolithic wall construction process is really simple and can be summarised in these simple steps. Full training can be arranged for competent tradespersons. A full selection of tools and accessories are available for use with the Porotherm® system. Contact us for further information.

Clayblock - The Process 1. Lay the first course on a traditional sand-cement mortar bed

Clayblock - The Process 3. Mix thin bed mortar according to guideline quantities – don’t mix more than you need
