Concrete Lego Blocks
If you are looking for a cost-effective, efficient way to build a concrete wall or structure on your land without using mortar, then you need Concrete Lego Blocks from PPC Concrete Products. These are a unique form of pre-cast concrete blocks that are designed to hold together by using pre-measured studs and recesses.
Much like the plastic toy Lego pieces, Concrete Lego Blocks come with nipples on top of them, to help you stack them together neatly in a solid formation. As they are stackable and low maintenance, these concrete blocks are easy to install and can be organised in many different shapes and patterns.
These Lego-like concrete blocks are suitable for permanent structures, such as retaining walls, as well as temporary works (for example, for creating barriers for music festivals and rail lines).
Why Concrete Lego Blocks Should Be Used?
Concrete Lego Blocks can be used as a temporary or permanent feature, which is why many home remodelling projects employ interlocking blocks as a building material. The concrete blocks are sturdy, versatile and offer excellent support and stability.
Concrete Lego Blocks are ideal for temporary works- when you have finished using them, they can be taken apart and reused for another purpose- which makes them a uniquely eco-friendly building material.
These concrete blocks have excellent freeze-thaw resistance, so they won’t be damaged in extreme weather conditions like heavy snow and torrential rain.
The thickness, strength and composition of Concrete Lego Blocks also give them excellent fire resistance properties, helping to stop a fire from spreading.
As Concrete Lego Blocks don’t require mortar, this speeds up the building process and requires less manpower- therefore saving you time and money. No more worrying about the extra cost and hassle of mortar or any other fixing material!
Additionally, the Concrete Lego Blocks are so strong, that they provide great protection from blasts. Are you looking for blast-proof building materials? Then look no further than Concrete Lego Blocks.
Moreover, Concrete Lego Blocks offer a high level of security- if you use them to build a wall in your garden, this will be strong enough to keep intruders from entering your property.
What is the difference between Concrete Lego Blocks and Interlocking Concrete Blocks?
Concrete Lego Blocks are similar to Interlocking Concrete Blocks. Both products have the same functionality- but they vary in the sizes, amount of studs and recesses, or the styles of blocks.

Yes, generally, you may need a forklift to move Concrete Lego Blocks, but they are easy to lift and manoeuvre. The concrete blocks are designed for easy lifting, as the block fits nicely into the lifting loop. For easy stacking, ensure the concrete blocks are placed on a flat area.
Forklift hire is generally affordable, and you won’t need to rent it out for long, as Concrete Lego Blocks require less manpower and less time for building.
Whether its concrete blocks or our interlocking concrete blocks, they can be stacked upon each other securely, but how high can interlocking blocks go? Well, by design these aren’t meant for tall structures, a general rule of thumb would be that 10 blocks is the maximum you can stack.
Though we do advise if you are considering an order, to get in touch with us and ask directly, as this could change depending on what blocks you order/ their usage.
Laying interlocking concrete blocks depending on their size, weight and quantity would require the use of a telehandler or other machine capable of lifting and placing concrete blocks. The process of laying them depends entirely on the reason for their usage, if serving as a temporary partition, the floor may not need to be treated before placement. However, if it’s for the extension of a home for example, foundations need to be set and flat.
However, generally, floors do not have to be treated before laying an interlocking concrete block. It just depends on the structure that is being made and whether it is temporary or permanent.
After the lowest blocks are placed, the blocks placed on top ‘click’ into place via the pre-cast recesses and studs at the bottom and top of the block respectively. This process is repeated until the desired structure is created.
