Title: BUILDING ELEMENT OR BLOCK, IN PARTICULAR FOR BUILDING MASONRIES THAT ARE EQUIPPED WITH RACEWAYS FOR TUBES AND CABLES, AND THE PROCEDURE FOR MANUFACTURING SAID RACEWAYS
Abstract:
The present invention pertains to the field of building and concerns a building block or element (1) which permits the construction of masonries containing raceways for the passage of tubes and cables in technological systems which minimises the necessity to create and re-close chases in the masonries. Each block (1) includes at least a vertical through hole (2) and at least one couple of opposed grooves (3, 4) on the lateral faces for the creation of vertical raceways, and preferably at least a projection (5) obtained on the upper face of the block (1) and at least a corresponding groove (6) obtained in the lower face of the block in order to prevent, in the case of laying with binders, the closure of the vertical raceways, and to provide, by means of a supplementary groove (7), a further horizontal raceway for each row of blocks.
