SILKA chamfered blocks in prestigious City refurbishment

AHMM have specified SILKA chamfered calcium silicate blocks for the internal refurbishment of 207 Old Street in the City of London. Unlike any other block available in

the UK, SILKA blocks are fairfaced on both sides and have a chamfer. Use of a thin joint mortar system enhances the chamfer’s aesthetic effect while exceptional smoothness enables them to be left fairfaced or painted. With high dimensional stability, they can be used for load bearing, non-load bearing and inner leaf cavity walls, high thermal mass absorbing heat and releasing it slowly to help maintain a comfortable environment.
