Title: Thin layer mortar masonry

Ref Code: GG58
Authors: R C de Vekey

Abstract1: Thin layer mortar technology, which is rapidly gaining in popularity among UK builders, overcomes many of the actual and perceived disadvantages of conventional masonry techniques. Thin layer mortar is easy to mix on site. The laying technique is simple and fast using large accurately sized block units and less mortar. The result is increased productivity and savings in labour and materials.Thin layer mortar technology complying with building regulations and codes of practice, aims to retain masonry as a preferred option for house construction because of its proven durability, inherent fire resistance, good noise exclusion and low maintenance.
