Standard infill blocks used to infill between the beams can have densities ranging from 600kg/m³ to 2000kg/m³ to suit thermal or sound requirements.
There are two main advantages to using a medium dense concrete block for infilling, these would be; greater sound resistance and an increased thermal mass capacity.
Infill blocks should be 100mm thick with a compressive strength of 3.5N/mm² or 7.0N/mm² and be able to support a minimum transverse load of 3.5kN on a 420mm span.
Where blocks are built into loadbearing walls the compressive strength must be equal to or greater than that of the blocks used in the wall construction. For garage floor applications, blocks with 7.0N/mm² compressive strength.
