Saving in Steel & concrete: reinforcement up to 25%
Due to its light weight feature the dead load of the building is drastically reduced if AAC Blocks are used and hence the need for steel reinforcement is reduced drastically up to 25% as compared in case of red bricks to the tune of approx.
Saving in Mortar Usage
Due to the massive size of AAC Blocks as compared to red bricks, the no. of joints is reduced by 65% and hence the usage of mortar is reduced by 60%.
Saving in Plaster Usage
AAC blocks comes in precise and accurate dimensions un like red bricks and so the blocks after installation offers you a wall without any undulation. So a thin 10 mm layer of plaster is sufficient to plaster the wall. This saves the plastering cost by 35%.
AAC Blocks due to its 7 times bigger size than red bricks ,the ease of laying with 1/3 no. of joints ,precise dimensions and no curing requirement ,offers time saving up to 30%.And so you see your project completed within a much shorter time frame as compared to red bricks.
Saving in financing cost
Money borrowed/invested in a project has its financing cost or opportunity cost. The sooner the project completes the sooner it becomes ready to yield utility and it saves your financial cost i.e. interest charges.
Saving in Man-hours (Labor)
Man-hours is a substantial cost for construction. AAC Blocks due to its 7 times bigger size than red bricks ,the ease of laying with 1/3 no. of joints ,precise dimensions and no curing requirement ,offers time saving i.e. labor charges of up to 40%.
Saving in Transportation
Transportation/Freight is a major cost head for AAC Blocks to reach the site of the customer. For this, the weight of the blocks play an important factor to decide the fright since by road the cost of transportation is based on weight of the product. AAC Blocks being 1/3rd in weight as compared to red bricks, it is much cheaper to transport AAC Blocks rather than red bricks.
Saving in cost of undercoat and top coats
The requirement of undercoats is highly dependent on the kind of smoothness of the wall installed. The wall that is made of AAC Blocks offers you highly smoother wall as compared to that of red bricks and hence the wall does not require undercoat such as putty/pop .
