CCP recommend that aggregate blocks should not be laid in temperatures below 3° Celsius and when being laid below ground level a general purpose mortar containing 1:1:5-6 cement: lime: sand (or equivalent) should be used.
Thermally efficient, quantifiably more accurate CCP foundation blocks weigh approximately 18 kg and comply with HSE / CDM guidelines for single unit manual handling, however it is good practice to individually assess site manual handling practices on an individual basis. Guidelines for this can be found in HSE Information Sheet No 37.
