Starken Standard Blocks offer a fast, convenient and versatile solution for most walling requirements. Each block is equivalent to 7 pieces of common brick. Starken AAC blocks are easy to work with and can be cut to size with a tungsten carbide-tipped handsaw. This allows maximum flexibility and minimises wastage.
- General internal & external walls.
- Party, compartment & separating walls.
- Acoustic & fire-rated walls.
- Only Block thickness 125mm & above are suitable for use as load-bearing walls.

Starken AAC density is about one-fifth of that of normal concrete blocks, making it easily handled. Foundation (piles & pile caps)
= 12% saving
Reinforcement for Beam & Column
= 17% Saving

2. Fire Resistant
More superior than traditional masonry for products with fire resistant up to 4 hours for a nominal block thickness of 100mm. Heat insulation more than 3 times superior to a brick wall.
3. Impact Resistant
Wall erected using 100mm thick AAC products are classified as “Severe Duty” grade and able to withstand impact loads potentially resulting from rough usage.
4. Cost Effective
Speed and ease of installation result in cost savings compared to traditional masonry construction.
History of usage dated more than 50 years protecting building envelopes and remain durable even under extreme weather conditions.
Starken AAC to help reduce at least 30% of environmental waste, decrease 50% of greenhouse radiation and over 60% integrated energy on the surface of the brick.
7. Thermal Comfort & Energy Saving
Starken AAC’s excellent thermal insulation properties result in improved comfort level and save heating and cooling costs.
8. Sound Resistant
Scientifically proven to provide better insulation to sound transmitted by air compared with other solid building materials.
9. Water Resistant
Starken AAC contains millions of closed microscopic cells which strongly resist moisture from passing through.
10. Dimensional Accuracy
Blocks and panels are manufactured under factory environment using state-of-the art modern machinery resulting in products with tighter dimensional tolerances.
11. Good Workability
Starken AAC can be easily sawn, cut, carved, nailed or drilled using ordinary hand tools.
