SmartWall Systems

SmartWall by Carbon System Homes

The Carbon System Homes SmartWall Monolithic building system utilises a monolithic clay block system bringing you a modern method of construction with thin joint adhesive technology.

The design of the blocks is such that they require no mortar or adhesive on the interlocking vertical joints. The fired, aerated clay blocks are manufactured to a tolerance of 1mm in height and come as a complete system that includes lintels, corner and shaped blocks, insulated mortar, adhesive and applicators.

These structural blocks have been used for many years across Europe and are suitable for load bearing and non-load bearing walls, for external & internal applications. They have full approval and comply to BS EN 771-1 and carry the CE mark with an A1 fire rating.

Smart Wall Benefits:

  • Excellent Thermal Performance.
  • Meets & Exceeds Building Regulation requirements.
  • Quick Construction Time.
  • Single solid wall construction.
  • Modern Method of Construction
  • Thin bed mortar technology
  • Complete Building System.
  • 90% less moisture in construction.
  • Completely Vapour permeable.
  • External Insulation to give that ‘tea cosy’ effect.

Clay is possibly one of the most sustainable materials used in construction. It is a natural material that it easy to work with and provides a comfortable living environment.

The SmartWall system has the ability to self-regulate humidity levels within a building and also provides a better thermal performance than other similar materials & systems.

The design of the blocks provides excellent thermal mass making it the perfect solution to avoid summer overheating in new homes.

Client Introduction

My wife and I first met Sue Dewhirst at the National Self Build and Renovation Centre just outside Swindon, Wilts. She was running a seminar there and we liked what we heard. We spoke to her there and arranged for her to meet us at our home to discuss our project. I was completely new to the world of self building and she and Chris were able to lead us through the whole process.

We discussed various different building techniques and we decided on our preferred method. I was always certain that, however the house was built, I wanted a turnkey project, as I knew if I got my hands dirty it would make the entire project take longer. Sue and Chris together sorted out design, planning permission, building control and finding the main contractor. They were regularly onsite and always ready to help by phone or email.

Thanks to them we now live in a very comfortable , warm, dry and cost effective home. They made what could have been a difficult and stressful project into a smoothly run operation. When problems arose they had the experience within the industry to solve any issues. I am unlikely ever to build another house but if I were, I would not do it without Evolved Design in my corner.
