Thin Joint Systems - Benefits of Using Thin Joint Systems in Construction

Productivity has become a key aspect in choosing a construction method. The Thin-joint system allows construction times equivalent to off-site system-build solutions. This is possible due to the following benefits of the system:

  • Increased bond strength
  • No mortar ‘swimming’ allowing continued laying
  • Ease of mixing and laying mortar
  • Highly dimensionally-accurate blocks
  • First fix can be brought forward

Improved Quality

The improvements in build quality gained from the use of the Thin-joint system are:

  • Improved thermal performance
  • Improved stability during construction
  • Proved build accuracy of finished walls
  • Reduction of site wastage

Improved Flexibility

As with traditional building methods, the construction is performed on site. This allows the builder to overcome problems which may have been overlooked at the design stage and simplifies change to the building should it need to be extended or adapted to suit future lifestyles:

  • Easy to extend or adapt later on
  • Construction problems can more easily be solved on site
  • Additional finishes are available
