Aercon's 100,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility located in Haines City, Florida
By using the AERCON technical manual, you have made a decision to consider the most innovative building material available in today’s market. The combination of fire resistance, thermal efficiency, cost effectiveness, and environmental qualities of AERCON cannot be surpassed by any other building product.
Construction demands are ever changing, requiring building systems to be versatile, efficient and cost effective. AERCON offers this in a variety of systems that can be utilized in many applications. AERCON produces non-load bearing vertical and horizontal exterior wall panels, load bearing vertical panels, and floor and roof panels. AERCON also produces a significant number of block products in a multitude of combinations of thickness, height, length and Strength Class. Review the summary of products in the Overview Section to determine which AERCON system will best suit your needs.
AERCON is the name of the company and the fully integrated building system of Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) panels and block, perfect for commercial, industrial, educational, public and residential projects.
AERCON Florida’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is located in Haines City, Florida. The 100,000 square foot facility is designed to efficiently produce block and engineered panels for rail or truck transport throughout the United States.
AAC was developed by a Swedish architect, and was patented in 1924. The architect was looking for a building material that had the properties of wood good thermal insulation, solid structure, easy to work with and handle but without the disadvantages of combustibility, decay and termite damage. At that time there were only small, heavy building blocks with poor insulation properties. He succeeded in producing a highly cellular, lightweight material from quartzite sand, lime and water.
These raw materials can be found in almost unlimited quantities throughout the world. They are processed with cement and a rising agent to provide a building material with a large number of air pores aerated concrete. And it is precisely these pores, in addition to the solid structure of calcium silicate hydrates, which give AERCON its exceptional product properties: fire resistant/non-combustible, superior thermal insulation, excellent acoustic insulation, lightweight, termite and pest resistant, ease of workability and handling, universal application, non-allergenic, and efficient construction.
Environmentally friendly and energy-conserving, AERCON meets all the requirements of our modern age. Absolutely no pollutants or hazardous wastes are generated in the process and there is no waste of precious raw materials. Pure AERCON, not containing any foreign materials, can be recycled into other useful products.
Even the production method conserves energy since steam curing is carried out at high pressures and thermal energy is recovered and reused for maximum efficiency. Production trimmings can also be fully recycled, again making AERCON a highly efficient and environmentally compatible building material.
AERCON is available in several different load bearing and non load bearing forms:
Blocks and panels are available with tongue and groove joints for easy and sure connection. They can be used in single and multi-story buildings and are ideal for residential, commercial, educational, industrial and public buildings.
AERCON offers strong advantages over conventional building materials because of its exceptional product properties and ease of construction. AERCON’s excellent strength makes it suitable for both load bearing and non-load bearing structures, and perfect for all types of applications.
Although AAC is relatively new to the U.S., it has been a favored building material for over 70 years throughout Europe and Asia, and in many countries throughout the world.
