Clay block; JUWO Evolved Smart wall
As thermal performances improve, standard cavity wall construction is going to have to consider the structural stability of increasing widths of cavities as well as the impact of ‘psi’ values of wall ties and the materials that wall ties are manufactured from to maintain structural strength.
The JUWO system involves simple elimination of the cavity so the whole structure works as a monolithic wall. The application of thin joint adhesives doesn’t require bricklayer expertise and can be finished externally with either direct render, brick or stone slips, timber or decorative cladding, there are minimal restrictions.
Air tightness is achieved using a direct plaster finish internally, so there is no need for membrane layers and tapes. The JUWO Evolved SmartWall is a natural building system using modern methods of construction, making it fast to build.
The sustainability of the system provides a product that uses less than 85% of the treated water used in cavity wall construction and at the end of its extensive lifespan, it can be completely recycled.
