Hourdi Roofing

Testing hourdi blocks - 750 kg on 8 hourdis = 3125 kg/m2
The hourdi block produced by the Auram press 3000 is used to create floors and roofs.

These blocks rest either on reinforced concrete T beams or on ferrocement channels.

As these blocks are hollow they create roofs which are more comfortable under a hot climate.

The resistance of these blocks is extremely high. We could not break 8 hourdis with 750 Kg stacked upon them, which means about 3125 Kg/m2.
