WHAT IS

What is lightstrong

LightStrong is an Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) block that is manufactured in Cebu, Philippines. It is an industrially produced lightweight building material made from all-natural fine ingredients. It is a homogenous concrete solid block and weighs approximately one-third of the weight of conventional concrete. LightStrong is a cost-effective wall system as experienced and validated by the users from both public and private sectors.

It contributes greatly to the reduction of the construction duration as installation of LightStrong blocks is faster than conventional concrete wall systems. Furthermore, it reduces cost of foundation and other structural members due to its lightweight property. Buildings constructed with LightStrong Blocks are safe as its wall has a fire rating of more than four (4) hours and is earthquake resilient. Its excellent thermal efficiency also reduces energy cost. Plus, this product is eco-friendly, too!

Autoclaved Aerated Concrete

Made using all-natural fine ingredients, these eco-friendly and lightweight homogenous concrete blocks are molded and cut into precisely dimensioned units and then cured at high pressure and temperature in an autoclave.

 

No Steel Bars

Structures that are constructed using LightStrong blocks require less to no steel bars at all due to its low density. You get a durable wall system but with less construction cost

 

No Plastering

Because LightStrong blocks come in precisely cut units and smooth surface area, you don’t need much rendering for your finishing touches.

LightStrong is the pioneering brand for AAC blocks in the Philippines. Its highly-equipped plant located in Minglanilla, Cebu is also the only AAC manufacturing plant in the country. You don’t need to spend more on shipment costs. We bring these construction solutions closer to you.

 

Solid wall

Unlike common hollow blocks, LightStrong blocks don’t have molded core holes. You don’t need additional mortar to fill in hollow parts; therefore, less costs. Walls that are constructed using LightStrong AAC also have good sound insulation that is ideal for residential and institutional projects and excellent thermal insulation property that contributes to less humidity.
