Concrete Slip Blocks

CONCRETE SLIP BLOCKS DESIGNED TO MAINTAIN COURSING HEIGHTS AND TO AID THE INSTALLATION OF BLOCK AND BEAM FLOORING

At Thomas Armstrong (Concrete Blocks) Ltd we manufacture a wide range of bespoke slip blocks to maintain coursing heights and aid the installation of block & beam flooring. These blocks are designed to work in conjunction with our Insulite or Dense Concrete Blocks, to ensure material continuity throughout the construction.

Slip blocks are manufactured to BS EN 771-3 and are ISO 9001 Quality Assured, ISO 14001 Environmentally Certified and hold BES 6001 ‘Excellent’.
