Liteblok™ is an aerated, precision molded concrete block. By combining compressed air with a non-toxic liquid foaming agent, a foam is formed which is introduced into regular concrete leaving numerous tiny discrete air pockets within the material. The blocks are actually forms that are laid without mortar and are interlocking and lightweight allowing for significant savings in construction time and cost compared to traditional wood frame construction (see Understanding Wall Costs in News & Information).

The ease of assembly makes Liteblok™ ideal for “do it yourself” home builders and professional builders alike. Liteblok™ has high insulation values, is fireproof and termite resistant. Liteblok™ built structures are strong and perform well in high winds and during seismic activity. It is a unique product that is patented worldwide. Liteblok™ is very different from all other concrete products on the market and should not be confused with Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) or Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC).

I've tried 3D panels, ICF, and CMU block. This is the easiest! This is the best!

Liteblok™ is a Green building product providing many LEED credit opportunities to industry professionals. Long lasting, affordable, energy efficient homes are built with non-toxic materials that generate minimal job site waste. Potentially toxic substances such as polystyrene and fly ash are absent. Liteblok™ can be found in residential and commercial construction. Applications include interior and exterior walls in homes and buildings, fire walls, fences, sheds, and retaining walls. To learn more about how Liteblok™ compares with competing wall systems, please review Liteblok™ Compared.

Liteblok is the ultimate green building block. It is precision molded, interlocking, mortarless and requires little skill to lay.

Liteblok is made with cellular lightweight concrete. A non-toxic chemical foam (see photo) is introduced into regular concrete leaving a multitude of air pockets within the mixture. This wet mixture is poured into block molds and allowed to cure. No heat is employed during the manufacturing process. The molds are disassembled revealing lightweight blocks comprised of sand and cement filled with non-interconnected air pockets. The patented interlocking design and the cellular lightweight concrete used in the manufacture of Liteblok are entirely unique. During construction, reinforced steel (rebar) and grout are introduced into some of the holes within the blocks to form columns. It is these columns that provide the support for the structure. The structure essentially represents a basic column and beam system with the columns and beams being made out of materials that structural engineers are already familiar with. The mortarless design creates gaps between blocks which act as expansion joints eliminating the need for such. Although Liteblok™ walls are structural, the blocks themselves are not structural elements. Liteblok™ is a form that contains the structure.

There are four block sizes available: the five inch thick Liteblok™ Standard, the five inch thick double high Liteblok™ Tall, the eight inch thick Liteblok™ Grande and the new Liteblok™ Jumbo. We also offer two standard densities of the Liteblok form. Liteblok 38 is lightweight and has very good insulating properties. This form is intended for those applications requiring thermal insulation or a low density. Our Liteblok 69 is a heavier and harder block that is targeted at applications where abrasion resistance is important and thermal insulation and light weight are less of a priority. Besides our standard Liteblok versions, it is also possible for us to provide custom solutions including different densities and sizes. Applicable Standards for Liteblok and Liteblok Construction provides a listing of many of the codes and standards that apply to Liteblok construction within the US.
