After hundreds of prototyping hours, the right tools, we came up with a system.
In 2015, our founder, Hajjar Gibran, saw that Aircrete equipment was being used commercially in Europe and Asia, however, the equipment was massive, expensive, and hard to find.
With the help of his son, Joel Haggar, and Steve Areen, they scaled the equipment into affordable tools that anyone can use.
Before we look at each tool, we must see how they all work together inside the Domegaia Aircrete Building System. Then we will go into the specifics of each tool.

The Aircrete Building System
To get a better idea of how everything works together. Let's start by taking a look at the entire Aircrete Building System. When everything is set up, this system produces as many batches of aircrete as you need for your building project.
Bringing it all together...
1. THE AIR COMPRESSOR
Creates the air needed to create the bubble in the foam
2. FOAMING AGENT BUCKET
This contains the soap and water to supply the foam with foaming agent.
THESE BOTH CONNECT TO…
3. THE FOAM GENERATOR
This allows the air pressure to regulated to allow the right amount of into the
foaming agent, and pumps this foam into the mixer.
4. THE FOAM INJECTOR MIXER
As the foam is pumped into the mixer, the wand attachment will allow you to at first measure your foam weight. Then after you have the perfect weight of foam you will attach the wand and begin mixing.
5. MIXING BUCKET
The mixer will now mix and inject foam into the mixing bucket that contains the 94 lb bag of cement and water.
These forms can be adjusted to 4”, 6” or 12” blocks.
The blocks will cure for 24 hours at a minimum.
