First Outdoor Porotherm Structure
5m High Gable Ends
Dual-Adhesive Products

Built on the outdoor test slab at FBR's premises, the house structure was built in a style commonly found in Europe, featuring gable ends approximately five metres high. The Wienerberger blocks used in the structure are the largest blocks ever used by the Hadrian X® and the largest produced by Wienerberger, and the first clay blocks to be passed through the robot.

FBR used two different block types – double leaf blocks for the external walls and single leaf blocks for the internal walls to form a monolithic wall system already approved for use in European markets. Each R25 Porotherm is equivalent to 12 standard bricks.
