“Our business could see the need to develop a hollow core block product which had the beauty and strength of our traditional Jaffa Limestone blocks,” says Brendan Merriman, Manager of Jaffa Limestone. “The funding allowed us to invest in the equipment to develop these blocks and we believe they will be a huge success.”
Manufactured in the standard Australian block size - 390mm x 190mm x 190mm - Jaffa’s Limestone Hollow Core blocks can be used in the same manner as other hollow core blocks available on the market.
“From a trade point of view, our blocks are a finished product once laid, making them an excellent material to work with. From a consumer perspective, people love the random texture of our limestone blocks and the unique and changing hue of the blocks depending on the natural light during the day,” says Merriman.
A point of difference with Jaffa’s Limestone Hollow Core blocks is that they do not require rendering, painting or treatment once laid. As such, final projects should prove to be a similar laid price to other hollow core blocks that generally require treatment or further work in architectural settings.
Creating a number of test projects from the Hollow Core block range, Jaffa Limestone has completed extensive lab testing to ensure the product meets regulations standards. Having successfully created the cost-friendly, low-maintenance blocks to meet building standards, Jaffa Limestone is thrilled to be able to offer Hollow Core blocks as part of their every increasing range of quality limestone products.
