cavity walls when painted with a masonry paint.
Configuration: Insert group 1, 2 or 3 as per BS EN 1996-11.
Group 1 ≤ 25% formed vertical voids by volume
Group 2 > 25% ≤ 60% formed vertical voids by volume
Group 3 > 25% ≤ 70% formed vertical voids by volume
Compressive strength: 10.5 N/mm²
Freeze/Thaw Resistance: Insert, as BS 5628-3:2005 Table

Work size(s): Standard face size and thickness
combinations are:
-390 x 190 mm at 90, 140 and 190 mm thick.
-440 x 215 mm at 100, 140, 190 and 215 mm thick.
100mm thick block available in solid and cellular
configurations. 140mm thick block available in hollow and
cellular configurations. 190mm and 215mm available in
hollow configuration only.
Finish The method of manufacture provides for
dimensionally accurate units with sharp clean arises and low
moisture absorbtion. The sizes of aggregates selected for
the production of the blocks provides a texture that is
particularly suitable for painting. As the blocks are a stock
item consistency of colour cannot be guaranteed. Colour
consistency can only be assured if the blocks are
ordered to be manufactured in one production batch.
Special shapes: An extensive range of special block
shapes is available. Full details, including illustrations and
code references, are shown in the Colinwell Product Guide.
In addition, Colinwell offer a bespoke cutting service to
produce distinctive features or solve particular design
problems. Insert, e.g.
