Versatile Applications

  • For Construction on Ground of Poor Bearing Capacity: For reducing the cost and complexity foundations, even in the most difficult ground conditions. It also enables larger structures to be built for the same load transmitted to the ground.
  • For Structures Whose Self-Weight Exceeds The Loads They Carry: High strength lightweight concrete enables long-span large precast components, bridges precast roofing slabs, large-span slabs, etc. to be slimmer, with aesthetic and economic advantages.


  • Refurbishment and Construction Works in Seismic Zones: The use of high strength lightweight concrete in the construction of structures lessens seismic stresses, also simplifies the design, and ensures that buildings are safer in the event of earthquake.
  • Complex Architectural Projects: The use of high strength lightweight concrete enables structures to be slimmer with fewer structural constraints, and it making possible for greater designs freedom and more adventurous architectural solutions.


  • Refurbishment:  For avoiding excessive loads on existing structures and foundations when floor slabs are strengthened or when extra floors are added to the existing buildings and in all refurbishment works where concrete can be used (columns, load bearing, wall, edge beams, labs, staircases, balconies, etc.).
  • Reducing Thermal Bridging In The Building Envelope: Thermal bridging due to structural elements that pass through the external enclosure (roofs, façade, foundations)  is reduced by up to 3-5 times. This also reduce heat loss and the risk of building pathologies and facilitate compliance with most demanding regulations and certification protocols

  • In Prefabricated Structures And Components: Lightweight precast structural components are easier to maneuver, more economical to transport, can be made slimmer, and have better insulating properties and improved fire resistance as compared to normal concrete.
