YTONG Concrete Blocks For Gold Tower
Carrington Group has always striven to provide the best services and highest quality products and work and is constantly looking at how and where improvements can be made. To this end Carrington have started to use YTONG aerated concrete blocks on the prestigious Gold Tower luxury apartment development in Kyrenia North Cyprus. Gold Tower will be Carrington flagship development and include commercial property as well as luxury apartments including penthouses with the option of rooftop swimming pools. This five star development will use the latest state of the art SMART building technologies and the highest quality materials which is why YTONG was chosen.
Carrington Group have now signed an agreement with Hasan Onalt and Son’s Ltd known as Kale Group, the official distributor of YTONG in North Cyprus. Carrington Group will use YTONG as a standard in all developments. The history of YTONG starts in 1923, in Sweden. Architect Johan Axel Eriksson at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm managed to produce an extremely porous material with superior insulation and fire resistance properties. The material was patented during 1924.
The licence for the production was granted in 1928 and contractor Karl August Carlen started the production of the aerated autoclaved concrete (AAC) in 1929. The first branded building material in the world combines outstanding insulating properties and easy workability associated with wood together with solid construction and rot and fire resistance.
The product was named Yxhult Anghardad Betong: “Yxhult” is a small Swedish town and “Betong” is the Swedish word for concrete. A short version of it though, became the famous brand today known all over the world as simply YTONG.
YTONG is now the world’s largest manufacturer of aerated concrete blocks. YTONG blocks are not only used to construct inner leaves of cavity walls and partitioning walls but also internal, external and fire walls in both load-bearing and non-load bearing designs. The building block therefore is known as being efficient for both house construction and for commercial and industrial buildings. They are the highest quality available. Some of the benefits are shorter construction time, low maintenance costs, good sound insulation and excellent thermal insulation. It easily meets energy standards and codes. The short- and long-term benefits of their blocks are realised by owners, developers, designers and contractors.
Carrington are very proud of their reputation which has been built on having the highest standards and using the best quality materials available. The use of YTONG blocks is yet another way our standards are being maintained and improved. Gold Tower is a great investment opportunity in North Cyrus and using YTONG will help to ensure that the high quality standards will benefit our owners investment.
