OTHER INSTALLATION DETAILS
ELECTRICAL & PLUMBING
Electrical and plumbing trades have several options for installing conduit, pipes and fixtures into the Bautex Block wall. The first two inches of the entire face of both the inside and outside of a Bautex Block wall consists of the EPS-Cement composite material that is easy to cut and carve using wood cutting tools.
Recessed in Bautex wall
Plumbing and electrical elements under 2-inches in diameter can be recessed and glued into scored channels cut out of the block insulation.
Inside chase of furred-out wall
For plumbing and electrical elements over 2-inches or where future relocation or additions are more likely, it is best to build a chasing by installing drywall on furring channels.
Through-wall penetrations can be made through the full 10-inch deep sections of insulation that occur throughout the Bautex wall every 16 inches in every direction.
