Thermal Liteblock is a lightweight, durable and thermally efficient concrete block that provides improved energy efficiency in the design and construction of new buildings. The product was developed to meet new building regulations in particular Part L. Launched in May 2015 it includes thermal modelling of a wide range of building junctions which means that we can provide our customers with design solutions and validated thermal performance calculations, through the Roadstone technical support team.
