There are many companies out there offering machines to mass produce compressed earth bricks. We are studying these prospects for eco sustainable villages.
COMPRESSED EARTH BRICKS
LCH Machine Specifications
The LCH Stabilised Earth Brick (SEB) Machine is easily transported onto a construction site and can immediately produce high quality, interlocking bricks made from the local soil. By using the unique interlocking features, LCH machines allow "dry construction", i.e. no mortar is required to hold the bricks together. Made from soil treated with RoadPacker Ionic Soil Stabiliser products, the LCH Stabilised Earth Bricks (SEB) can be used within a few days of production. The fast, reliable and easy to handle, Stabilised Earth Brick machine, will allow for low cost construction of high quality houses utilising unskilled labour.
The construction of a 50 square metre house requiring 5,000 soil/clay bricks, can be achieved in two or three (2 or 3) days and will be of the highest standard. The home will also be heat resistant, sound proof and completely stable. .
The LCH Stabilised Earth Brick Machine
The mobile integrated roadworthy trailer allows the movement of the LCH Stabilised Earth Brick Machine from one part of the construction site to another without major disruption to the project.
LCH Stabilised Earth Brick Dry Stacking Block Specifications
To produce good quality bricks with LCH Stabilised Earth Brick technology, the following procedures must be adhered to:
foundations have to be erected to give your building strong support. LCH
Compacted Earth Brick can be used for these foundations.(0 .3 of a litre of
RoadPacker Clay Brick Stabiliser per m3 of material/soil is recommended for
foundations as a rule.)
In this instance only (foundations), the LCH Compacted Earth Brick will have to be assembled with mortar and carefully aligned. The first row of LCH Compacted Earth Bricks will give the essential vertical alignment for the other rows of bricks to be placed on to.
Easy To Assemble
LCH Compacted Earth Bricks are firmly interlocked on the top, bottom and sides. A wall built with LCH Compacted Earth Bricks is extremely strong and highly isothermic. Each brick is perfectly extruded and all bricks are of the highest quality.
There is no available technology that will allow you to build as fast as with LCH Compacted Earth Bricks at such a competitive price.
How To Build A Wall
Once the foundations are built to the proper standard, the bricks should be moved close to the site for ease of handling, then start laying the first row of bricks. Check ( with a spirit level ) that the bricks are perfectly flat, ( Note: Any angle on the first row will throw out the vertical alignment of later rows ). The first row must be finalised with proper attention to the levels, paying particular attention to the junctions. Once the first row is completed, the walls will follow the set level and run true. Corners are easy to make and in a short time the building will take shape. Walls for a 50 square metre house are easily built in 1 or 2 days depending on the team's skill.
The LCH Compacted Earth Brick machine permits you to build using the insitu soil ( which is usually free ) and only 0.2 of a litre of RoadPacker Clay Brick Stabiliser per m3 in the mix to achieve the most inexpensive, strong and most attractive looking wall. This is why LCH Compacted Earth Brick technology is the most cost-effective method of building low cost housing, of the very highest standards.
Several Reasons Why This Technology Should Be Used.
