Welcome to PLASTBAU ARABIA CO. LTD., your one-stop-shop for high-quality building products. We specialize in providing sustainable construction solutions to builders and contractors throughout the Middle East. One of our most popular products is the EPS Hourdi, also known as the EPS Hordy Blocks.
This lightweight, high-performance product is made from Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam and is used to create suspended slab systems that offer many benefits to builders, contractors, and homeowners alike.
The EPS Hourdi Blocks provide superior insulation properties and are much lighter than other traditional materials, such as concrete or clay blocks. This makes them ideal for use in roofs, as they can reduce the structure’s overall weight, making it easier to construct and maintain. They can fill in gaps and provide insulation to the structure. As a result, structures made with these blocks are less expensive to build and are also better insulated.
If you’re seeking to reduce the weight and cost of concrete slabs while maintaining their required strength during building construction, consider using EPS Hourdi Blocks. These blocks are especially suitable for high-rise buildings where reducing the load on upper floors is necessary. Moreover, EPS Hourdi Blocks are light enough to be carried up to the higher floors of a building during construction, which can help to reduce overall costs.
EPS Hourdi Blocks can significantly reduce the raw materials and labor needed for a construction project, resulting in significant cost savings. Additionally, the EPS insulation material insulates against sound and helps keep temperatures more consistent, resulting in a more comfortable and energy-efficient environment.
The blocks are lightweight and easy to install, making them an ideal choice for many construction projects. Furthermore, they are non-toxic and environmentally friendly, making them a great choice for green projects.
Installation and Maintenance of Plastbau ® Hourdis
Installing EPS Hourdis is a straightforward process that requires basic construction skills. It involves laying the Hourdi blocks between the concrete ribs to create a monolithic structure that is strong and durable. Here are some general steps to follow when installing EPS Hourdis:
1. Prepare the surface: Make sure the surface is clean and free of debris before laying the EPS Hourdis.
2. Lay the EPS Hourdis: Lay the EPS Hourdis on the prepared surface, ensuring they are level and flush.
3. Reinforce the structure: Reinforce the structure with steel mesh or reinforcement bars to add additional strength and stability.
4. Pour concrete: Pour concrete on top of the EPS Hourdis to create a solid foundation or structure.
5. Finish the surface: Finish the surface with a suitable material, such as tiles or plaster.
Benefits of Plastbau® EPS Hourdi
EPS hourdi blocks offer several benefits over traditional building materials. Here are some of the key advantages of using EPS hourdi:
Lightweight:EPS Hourdi is incredibly lightweight, making it easy to handle and transport. This reduces the risk of workplace injuries, lowers the carbon footprint of the building, and can also save you money on transportation costs.
Cost-effective: EPS Hourdi is an affordable building product that offers excellent value for money. Its lightweight and easy-to-install nature also help to reduce construction costs. Additionally, its insulating properties help to reduce energy costs, making it an attractive option for homeowners who want to save on their utility bills.
Easy to install: EPS hourdi blocks are easy to install and require less time and labor than traditional building materials. This reduces construction costs and speeds up the completion of your project.
Thermal Insulation: EPS Hourdi has excellent insulating properties, helping to regulate temperature and reduce energy costs. This makes it an ideal building solution for areas with extreme weather conditions, such as hot summers and cold winters.
Acoustic Insulation: EPS hourdi blocks are also excellent for acoustic insulation, reducing noise transmission between floors and from outside.
Recyclability: EPS Hourdi is a recyclable material, which means that it can be reused or repurposed at the end of its life cycle. This reduces waste and helps to conserve natural resources.
Low embodied energy: The production of EPS Hourdi requires less energy than the production of traditional building materials. This reduces the environmental impact of the production process and helps to conserve natural resources.
