I test the deflection of these garden box panels under a point load to find out how strong is aircrete. These panels link together to make long lasting rot-proof garden boxes. I test 4 lightweight panels made from Aircrete. These panels were made in Part 3.6 of my Garden Box series. I load the panels with weight till their breaking point.
How Strong is Aircrete? – Deflection Test Lightweight Concrete
Background for this Video
I’ve had many requests to test the strength of my aircrete garden panels. It took some to figure out the best way to go about this. With limited equipment it can be difficult to get measurable results. I decided to take a non-scientific general approach and try so fairly basic tests to see how the panels held up to weight that either approached their breaking point, or past it. Have a look at the video and lease some comments and questions.

Testing to find out how strong is aircrete
In the next episode I’ll test the strength of some CSA concrete panels. So that’s coming right up.
