Masonry saw and supplementary blocks
Supplements for professional handling of KLB ma-sonry
For supplementing wall ends or maintaining the overbond dimensions the block-formatted KLB wall building materials must be custom cut using a stone circular saw. The cut edge then forms the finish of a wall or a door or window reveal, or the respectively deliverable, small-format supplementary blocks must be used.
For the developer the use of a stone circular saw results in numerous advantages, in particular if the design did not call for a grid, and many intermediate lengths are required:
- The use of small-format supplementary blocks is time-consuming and requires a lot of material. Cutting large-format fitted pieces is much more reasonable.
- The small-format supplementary blocks required for wall integrations and reveal partitions can be saved.
- The warehouse storage of different small-format supplementary blocks is reduced to a minimum.
- Masonry with large-format blocks of the same layer height is easy. Extensive layer plans are not required.
- The production of fitted pieces with the mason’s hammer or mason’s axe is behind the times. It is imprecise and leads to unnecessarily large mortar joints.
- Hitting disturbs the block structure uncontrollably.
- Sawing is permitted for all block formats.
- A stone circular saw contributes to preventing waste and provides a contribution worth mentioning to a clean construction site.
- The procurement costs are usually quickly made up through material savings and lower expense for the disposal of waste.
A stone saw for creating custom pieces is now standard on every progressively run construction site. Stone circular saws with a diamond blade, diameter 90 cm, for cuts up to a masonry thickness of 36.5 cm have proven to work well.
