ASIP, AL QUDRA PLACE ORDER FOR LIGHT BLOCK FACTORY EQUIPMENT Abu Dhabi.- Ali & Sons is branching out into the manufacture of AAC light weight concrete blocks to tap into an increasing demand from the burgeoning UAE construction industry.



Our products have been used in all categories of high and low-rise buildings as well as in villas, hotels and industrial complexes. Spectrum’s AAC blocks measure 250 mm in height by 600 mm in length and are manufactured in thickness of 70, 100, 120, 150, 200, 250 and 300 mm. A 200x250x600 mm block weighs about 15 Kg, one third the weight of a concrete hollow block with similar dimensions. AAC blocks are laid with thin-bed mortar applied with a toothed trowel.

Compared to widely used concrete our products:

  • Three times less in weight (AAC block density is 500 Kg/m3 vs. 1400-1500 Kg/m3)
  • Provide greater insulation (13 times more)
  • Increased sound insulation (Twice higher)
  • protects against termites
  • Double the fire rating (4+ hours vs. 2 hours)
  • Provide savings in cement and steel
  • Provide savings in piling, foundation and slab thickness
  • Less wastage on sites, can be cut to shape
  • Environmentally friendly (a “Green” product)
  • Faster and easier to build with (twice as fast)

These advantages outweigh by far the common concrete blocks and provide continuous savings for clients, contractors, tenants and last but not least the nation.
