Hollow Dense concrete blocks are ideal for applications where a durable, lower-weight and high strength wall is required, either above or below damp-proof course (DPC). They are available in ‘Standard’ or ‘Paint-grade’ finishes.
The hollow cores can be filled with poured concrete and reinforced with steel to form incredibly strong walls for applications such as agricultural sheds, commercial and industrial buildings, storage bunkers, pond and pool linings and retaining walls.
Our Hollow Blocks are manufactured from high quality class 2 aggregates and consist of up to 30% recycled raw materials.
Hollow Dense Blocks are manufactured to BS EN 771-3 and are ISO 9001 Quality Assured, ISO 14001 Environmentally Certified and hold BES 6001 ‘Excellent’ and most locations.
The block and texture images are intended for indicative purposes only and actual textures and shades may vary between manufacturing locations. Please contact your regional sales office for further information and sample blocks. We advise the construction of sample panels on site as masonry appearance cannot be appreciated from individual block.
