How to build it

- ReBLOCK by ReBLOCK

Receiving the ReBLOCK system

Control the received goods for any damage.

Make sure to store the goods completely dry, ventilated, and covered from weather exposure.

Make sure to store the goods on firm and stable ground to avoid any tilting of the goods. 

Find your unique project drawings

You'll find them in your e-mail inbox.

Make sure all drawings are available. 


The content should be:

  • (Add on) Plinth plan corresponding to your ReBLOCK project and your choice of outer wall cladding.

  • Wall plate plans. Bottom and top plates.

  • Elevation drawings of all facades in the project.

  • One or more 3D visualizations

Your project unique drawings  display numbered components making it a breeze to build your project.

Wall plates & Roof anchors

Find the plan drawing showing your bottom wall plates.

Lay out your wall plates on top of the plinth/floor construction according to the plan.

Ensure that all dimensions are corresponding to those indicated on the drawing and fit the modular grid of the ReBLOCK system (300x300 mm).

Cut the wall plates to form inner and outer corners. Use the pre-made markings on the wall plates for a perfect fit.

Attach the wall plates to the underlying structure.

Now it is time to coordinate and fixate the roof anchors to the underlying structure. Place them at a centered location inside a ReBLOCK module. 

And remember to bring up the steel strips while building up the ReBLOCK components.

Unfold the ReBLOCKS

Frontpanel

Backpanel

Place the ReBLOCK in front of you in an upright position. The backpanel must face your stomach.

Quickly tilt the ReBLOCK to a horizontal position in a forward motion - DO NOT let go of it - keep a firm grip of it while tilting it forward.

 

The ReBLOCK should unfold itself by this quick forward motion - If not - give it a shake and it should unfold itself this way.

Make sure that all internal hinge components unfold themselves to such an extent that all 4 arrow markings at each hinge component become fully visible.

Now rotate the ReBLOCK back again.

Make sure to firmly rotate and 'lock' all pivottable arms at each hinge component in each ReBLOCK.

The pivottable arms are to be in a horizontal position to lock the hinge component when installed in a construction.

Placing the ReBLOCKS

Your project unique facade drawings give you all the information you need from hereon. It contains type numbers for all ReBLOCK components  included in your project.

Find the matching type numbers on your ReBLOCKS.

Place the ReBLOCKS as indicated on the facade drawings. 

Make sure to align the ReBLOCKS placement in order that the internal hinge components fit the markings on the bottom wall plate.

You can then fasten the ReBLOCK with the screws provided. Fill in the pre drilled holes inside as well as outside the ReBLOCK.

No more, no less.

Half bond pattern

By following the numbered facade drawings,

a half bond pattern should occur in between the individual ReBLOCKS.

And that is good.

It makes all the ReBLOCK components interlock by each other and thereby your construction becomes strong and firm.

If a half bond pattern does not occur.

- check ...

If your work is in line with the drawings provided.

- if not ...

Simply rearrange the ReBLOCK's so they are aligned with the drawings.

 

NOTE: Only remove screws from the pre drilled holes, if a rearrangement is necessary.

There are exceptions to this half-bond pattern rule of thumb. They usually occur at spandrels or lintels. Make sure to follow the drawings here.

Corners. In- and outwards

All corner joints are assembled with the included CS (Corner Set) components.

The CS component set can be used for both in- and outward corner assemblies.

Place the CS components on top of and in alignment with the bottom wall plate corner.

When embedding the included drainage profile make sure it faces towards outdoor exposure.

Use a spirit level to make sure the CS components are mounted at a vertical plane in both directions of the adjacent walls. 

Use the screws provided to mount the CS components. Only insert screws into the pre drilled holes inside and outside the adjacent ReBLOCKS when installing the CS components.


Repeat the above procedure when placing several CS components on top of each other.

Remember to ensure a tight overlap on the embedded drainage profiles which ensures that water is led away from the ReBLOCK structure.

Door & Window openings 

Pay attention to your facade elevation drawings and count your components to make sure the planned openings occur at the right places.

Make sure to use the right types of ReBLOCK at each side of the openings.

Mounting of the roof anchors

The roof anchors are mounted inside the ReBLOCK components as you build up the ReBLOCK wall.


Make sure they have a free course inside the wall and do not interfere with hinge components in a stretched state.


NOTE: When fixating the roof anchors at bottom and top wall plate level aim for a centered location in a ReBLOCK module.

Sills

The top wall plates are to be used for sills. 


Cut the wall plates to fit into openings in your wall structure.


Follow the markings on the wall plates for a perfect fit.


Make sure they fit between the hinge components closest to the opening edges.

 

Mount the included support blocks for both the sill and lintel.

Use the screws provided.


Let the wall plates' edges rest on the wall plates' support blocks.
 

Use the screws provided to mount the wall plate components.

Only insert screws into the pre drilled holes inside as well as outside the component.

No more, no less.

Lining components

Lining components come in full heights fit for door openings and in various widths depending on your project.

 

Cut the bottom wall plate visible in door openings to fit the width of the lining component.

 

The lining components are to be cut in length when used as window linings.

 

Place the lining components on top of the sill when making a window opening and prior to laying the lintels to rest on its support blocks.

 

Use the screws provided to mount the lining components.

Only insert screws into the pre drilled holes inside as well as outside the component.

No more, no less.

Lintels

The bottom wall plates are to be used for lintels. 


Cut the wall plates to fit into openings in your wall structure.


Follow the markings on the wall plates for a perfect fit.


Make sure they fit between the hinge components closest to the opening edges.

Mount the included support blocks for both the sill and lintel.

Use the screws provided.


Let the wall plates edges rest on the support blocks.
 

Use the screws provided to mount the wall plate components. Only insert screws into the pre drilled holes inside as well as outside the component.

No more, no less.

Remember to embed a reinforcing LT component to the ReBLOCKS placed on top of a lintel component.

Top wall plate

The top wall plates function as lids on top of wall sections.

Cut the wall plates to form inner and outer corners. Use the pre-made markings on the wall plates for a perfect fit.

Attach the wall plates to the underlying structure.

Use the screws provided to mount the wall plate components. Only insert scres into the pre drilled holes inside as well as outside the component.

No more, no less.

Remember to coordinate and fixate the roof anchors now.

Aim for a centered location inside a ReBLOCK module.

Bring them up through the openings in the wall plate for further fixation to eg. the trusses.
