Lightweight Block, Heavyweight Benefits

Construction of one of the four warehouses is complete. By handling 24-inch-long units, which weigh the same as the 16-inch-long versions, the mason gained 50% more wall area by placing the same number of units at the same pace of labor.

Lightweight masonry units allowed the six new warehouses at the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore to be built quickly and with less labor and weight.

E-Lite lightweight masonry units are comprised of 60% Livlite, 28% natural aggregates, and 12% cement and water. Livlite qualifies as a reclaimed material in applying for LEED credits.
