Marmox - Thermoblock


15% of a building's heat gets lost through the wall/floor junction and by simply replacing one layer of blocks with Marmox Thermoblocks, that heat loss can be reduced to just 1%.

Historically, it has been difficult to insulate the floor/wall junction because insulation isn't load bearing. However, that is what makes Marmox Thermoblocks so unique. With carefully placed supporting columns that sit within the insulation, Marmox Thermoblocks can support a massive 9 newtons... That's up to 3 storeys!
