It represents the family of eco-sustainable products designed to fully satisfy all thermo-hygrometric and massive performance requirements for energy containment as well as for acoustic insulation and fire resistance. All in compliance with the Minimum Environmental Criteria (C.A.M.), according to the D.M. 06/23/2022. The POROTON eco family is divided into three specialized types of blocks (Infills, Structural, Dividers).
The Infill walls typology (abbreviation MVI), characterized by a particular internal texture with thin staggered partitions and a high number of rows of chambers in opposition to the thermal flow, with very high thermohydrometric, acoustic and fire resistance performance.
The Structures typology (abbreviation PS) with the conformation of the internal and external partitions corresponding to the requests of the NTC/2018 for the construction of load-bearing masonry buildings in seismic areas.
The typology for Partitions and Dividers (abbreviation P), always with “vertical holes” arrangement, including a wide range of thicknesses that allow to give an adequate response to every type of performance.
The high technical value of the Poroton products by SCIANATICO LATERIZI is the result of the great experience acquired in 45 years of belonging to the Consorzio Poroton, directly participating in the research, studies and experiments that have qualified the brand.
This presence has also meant making a large contribution by actively participating with its technicians and laboratories in the research and experimentation of the best innovations which on the one hand have increasingly confirmed the validity of POROTON BRICKS and on the other have contributed to the national prestige acquired by the Consortium itself.
Producing brick with the POROTON brand has always meant the guarantee of the existence of a production process controlled at every stage and certified by external bodies, so as to ensure high performance of the materials with standards that go even beyond those required by current regulations. It means having a technical structure of great competence and professionalism capable of studying the possible evolutions of the product, of interpreting its technical application potential and proposing them to customers with technical-scientific rigor. It means attention to events and situations that lead to requests for new construction features, continuous verification, greater attention to energy containment and seismic safety.
For the identification of the Fire Resistance Class of brick walls, the New Code of Fire Prevention provides the use of specific tables included in different Ministerial Decrees. Our company has prepared summary tables to help the design engineers, for all our wall-mounted products, with the pertinent rules. The tables summarize two types of masonry:
1. Tables for not bearing walls including curtain wall blocks, infill wall blocks, and partitions wall blocks
2. Tables for load-bearing walls blocks
