They represent the solution with innovative blocks most closely linked to the construction tradition. Their installation is “with vertical holes” with the horizontal joint of normal mortar, with a maximum thickness of 7mm, and vertical dry joint with lateral multi-interlock. The low brick drilling percentage (max. 55%) and the reduced distance between the partitions allows the mortar to penetrate the holes for only a few millimetres, creating strong connections between the blocks (upper and lower), which make the masonry monolithic. The horizontal mortar joint can have one or two interruptions with a width varying from 2 cm to 4 cm. The lateral multi-interlock makes it possible to close the vertical joint without any use of mortar. The large size of the block allows advancement with respect to the edge of the pillar and the correction of the thermal bridge created by it.

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
