How to identify

Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC)

Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) is a lightweight form of concrete. RAAC is very different from traditional concrete and, because of how it was made, it is much weaker. The useful life of RAAC has been estimated to be around 30 years. RAAC was more commonly used in the UK from the 1950s until the mid-1990s in schools, colleges, and other public buildings. If you are unsure of the date of construction and/or modification of your buildings, we advise you to assess those thought to have been constructed between the mid-1930s and mid-1990s.
