Before construction of the Comfort Block wall ensure that all dimensions conform to the block dimensions for proper coursing and the reduction of gaping and cutting. All steel reinforcement should be located according to engineering recommendations before the base course is constructed.
Step 2 Preparing a base course
The preparation of the base course is the most critical stage of building with the Comfort Block System.
Before Commencing, all coursing requirements should be considered. Coursing Blocks made with Comfort Blocks should be used in the base course. Where concrete floors are incorporated standard mortar may be used to overcome any excessive variation in levels. This should be used between the floor and the first course of Comfort Blocks.
Block layers must insure that the base course is level horizontally along and across each block and that there are no steps between each block. Once the block layers have the course level, the highly engineered blocks combined with a good standard of workmanship will insure that the walls are plumb and of consistent high quality
Step 3 Mixing the mortar
Comfort Block mortar has been developed specifically for the Comfort Block system. A single 50 pound bag of Comfort Block mortar mixed with water will lay approximately 200 blocks when applied by roller.
The mortar can be mixed in small quantities local to laying which means a reduction in forklift movements, less plant or pedestrian contacts and no need for noisy cement mixers and bulk sand.
Step 4 Mortar Rolling Technique
A special roller has been designed for use with the Comfort Block system. The roller is fast and easy to use. It provides an even spread of mortar along the block work and reduces wastage and dermatological risk.
Pour the required amount of Comfort Block mortar into the roller and roll it backwards along the wall.
Optional Gluing Technique
An optional mortar adhesive to glue the blocks together is also available to construct the Comfort Block wall system. Due to the precision of the Comfort Block wall system, the wall remains level during the entire construction so all that is needed is adhesive to glue them together. A special adhesive specifically developed for gluing masonry product together is available from Comfort Block.
Step 5 Laying the Blocks
Once the base course has been prepared, laying Comfort Blocks is a simple process. Once the layer of block work has been placed down and a layer of mortar has been applied, lay the blocks next to each other using the interlocking design.
The block should be positioned and struck with a mallet to ensure that the blocks are seated correctly. The accuracy of the Comfort Blocks combined with the correct standards of workmanship insures the walls are vertically level.
Where string lines are used, they’re for line only. The level is maintained due to the accuracy of material and good workmanship. The Comfort Block system incorporates a place to insert line pins for such a purpose.
Step 6 Cutting Comfort Blocks
Mechanical cutting is recommended when cutting Comfort Blocks. The block cutter can use water suppressed disk cutters, chop saws, or appropriate bench cutting saws.
Step 7 Grouting
Grouting the Comfort Block wall should be done when the wall is no higher than 7 courses. Horizontal grouting may also be done as required on any course necessary. Steel may be laid into the lowered web locations to insure that grout covers the steel properly. Corners must be cut to insure steel intersects with the vertical grout. It is recommended that a concrete sand be used for grout as it flows a bit better and has additional strength. However, mortar sand may be used if that is what is available on the job site.
