Cost Reduction of Load Bearing Structure
Using Leca products in building leads to decrease 20~30 percent of dead load.Considering this matter while designing, will result to reducing and optimizing load bearing structure, lessening steel concrete and steel and increasing structural proper function against earthquake. It also gives off more confidence coefficient for any possible defect.
Cost Reduction of Installation
Insulating feature of Leca products help us to buy installation system with more optimized capacity of heating and cooling at the reasonable price, and saves the building energy at considerable rate. Performance of a test on building in 2006 showed 21 Yuan cost reduction per square meter for installing cooling system.
Cost Reduction of Maintenance
Thanks to durability and lacking of destructive effect on building components, specially on installation system. Leca plays a good role to lower maintenance cost moreover in case of masonry or repairment , destruction of components goes to minimum.
Prevention of Wasting Space
Raising walls with Leca blocks prevent wasting of interior space in building. However, other constructional materials may lessen the interior space.
Accelerating Implementation Process
Having various shapes and longer dimentions, Leca light weight blocks accelerate the implementation procces. Lower the labor energy cost and turn over also goes higher.
Coast Reduction of Transportation
Since the Leca aggregate which used to produce light weight concrete and precast panels is too light, transportation cost decrease and its lightness facilities the moving of Leca concrete components.
Reduction of Material Waste
Physical applicability of Leca blocks prevents wasting of constructional material in cutting, ridging and nailing etc, which also saves mortar and labor cost.
