Clay Filler Slab Tiles and blocksFiller slab roofs: An alternative roofing technology
Ceiling Blocks :
Since the heat gain from the roof is the highest, if the filler slab could be done using hollow materials, we get multiple advantages – passive solar cooling where the voids reduce the heat transfer, lesser roof weight thanks to the hollowness, different looks when seen from the room below, reduced sound transmission between the floors thanks to the voids in between and reduction of steel consumption considering greater distance between them. Accordingly, nowadays a special block called hollow clay roof block, also called as maruthi block or filler block, has gained popularity. These are manufactured by clay brick and tile manufacturers, mainly in Kerala. Once the roof centering is complete, it is levelled by a layer of stabilised mud or very weak cement mortar. First the roof blocks are placed end to end as per the structural engineers design, placing them closely and compactly. The minor gaps in between are sealed with the same lean mortar to reduce curing water flowing down after the roof casting. These blocks come with specific spaces to run the steel rods, in both the directions as required by room spans. A layer of thin steel rods is placed on top, electric conduits are tied and the roof is concreted as usual.
The following points to be kept in mind for filler material selection:
- Filler material should be inert in nature. It should not react with concrete or steel in RCC slab constructed.
- Filler materials water absorption should be checked for as it will soak the hydration water from concrete.
- Filler material should be of a size and cross-section, which can be accommodated within the spacing of the reinforcement and also thickness wise could be accommodated within the cross section of the slab.
- Moreover the Filler slab also provides insulation (compared to a conventional RCC slab) from the hot climate outside the building, providing thermal comfort to the user.
- Filler material texture should match with the desired ceiling finish requirements so as not to provide an ugly ceiling pattern.
