Eco-block Option

ecoblockConstru Casa has recently added the option to build using eco-friendy blocks from Interblocker.

These eco-friendly blocks:

  • Are made of 95% clay and sand and 5% natural binding agglomerates.
  • Are completely non-toxic.
  • Have no cement nor have to be in the oven to be cured, instead they are heavily pressed for strength and shape.
  • Utilize an interlocking shape to enable interconnecting without the use of cement motar. 
  • Have stronger compression strength (65 kg/cm2) than the standard concrete cinderblock (35 kg/cm2).
  • Allow tubes and electrical wiring to be hidden in two holes. Aside from this they are a solid block. 
  • Regulate the inside moisture levels in a house better than concrete, so a house stays drier in wet periods and condesation of water in the house is prevented. 
  • Are fungus-resistent due to high block PH levels (between 7 and 8,5). 
  • Provide better sound-proofing than hollow Cinderblocks due to their solid structure.
  • They are natural regulators of warmth and cold.
  • Are bullet proof. A nine mm bullet is unable to penetrate an ecoblock.
  • Visually appealing.
