Roadstone Limited has been manufacturing the Aristocrat walling masonry range of internal masonry blocks since 1992. The Aristocrat block has been developed to provide an economical, high quality light coloured block which does not require to be plastered and has air tightness properties better than 3m3/hr/m2 @ 50 Pascal’s.
Aristocrat Walling has been specified and used in numerous schools, industrial, retail, and commercial projects, including Dundrum Town Centre and the new Aviva Stadium Lansdowne Road.
Roadstone Aristocrat is now the first choice for specifiers when air tightness control and improved sound reduction performance are the key requirements. Aristocrat also provides an economic, aesthetically pleasing solution for un-rendered internal walls that may or may not be painted.
In addition, the walling has a number of characteristics which make it particularly useful in sustainable buildings.
