Acoustic Performance (Rw)

The Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) provides excellent damping for acoustic vibrations. This allows Loxo® Panels to absorb and reduce transmission of sound from outside sources and environmental noise, as well as indoor echoes. Houses with Loxo Panels are quieter and more comfortable compared to other cladding systems.

Durability, (Suitability) and Workability

Loxo® AAC Panels are low-maintenance products with high durability. They easily surpass the BCA requirements for minimum life expectancy, excel in quality and dimensional accuracy, will not warp or rot, and are resistant to pests. Similarly, they will withstand impacts likely to occur in normal domestic or commercial conditions. Loxo panels have enough design flexibility to suit any situation. They allow for modular design and construction to minimal cutting and wastage and facilitate additional design features such as quoins and corbels.

Environmental and Economic

Loxo® AAC Panels are formed with autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC), which is a mineral-based natural, non-toxic, and pollutant-free building material made from abundant resources. It is resource efficient, with a finished product volume of four to five times the raw materials used. The production processes are extremely environmentally-friendly with all waste product recycled back into production and no pollutant emission.
