Hollow Concrete Block
Application

  • Suitable where large, external wall panels are required, e.g. sheds, bunkers, retaining walls.
  • Some or all of the cores can be filled with concrete and steel rebar to form extremely strong, reinforced walls with high resistance to lateral loads, ideal for lining swimming pools, ponds etc.
  • Standard texture finish provides an excellent surface for mortars, renders and plasters.

Manufactured to BS EN 771-3.
