Standard Concrete Block

Calling all construction and DIY enthusiasts, are you looking for a simple, cost-effective, and efficient solution to building a concrete wall or structure on your land?

Then, you need Standard Concrete Blocks from PPC Concrete Products. These are a type of interlocking concrete block, which are a unique form of pre-cast concrete blocks that are designed to hold together by using pre-measured studs and recesses.​

These dense concrete blocks are built with unique profiles and features, which allow them to fit perfectly into each other, without the use of mortar or any fixing materials like grout. Instead, the cementitious blocks simply snap together with each other.

Strong, durable and designed to last for years to come, Standard Concrete Blocks are suitable for permanent structures, such as retaining walls.

Another added bonus of Standard Concrete Blocks is that you can also use them for temporary works. For instance, for creating barriers at music festivals, or at open rail lines, or for preventing unauthorised vehicles and pedestrians from trespassing on dangerous land.

Standard Blocks are built with nipples on top of them, with smooth faces on the other sides, 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.

What are Standard Concrete Blocks used for?

Building a wall or structure has never been so easy. All you have to do is connect together our Standard Concrete Blocks in a suitable design, and this will create the structure you want.

Standard Concrete Blocks can be used in multiple ways, including:

  • material storage bays
  • fencing
  • salt stores
  • flood protection
  • retaining walls
  • security barriers and barricades
  • road blocks
  • industrial buildings
  • segregation bays (i.e. recycling centres)

and much more!

Why should I use Standard Concrete Blocks?

Standard Concrete 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.

These dense concrete 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.

Our 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 Standard Concrete Blocks also give them excellent fire resistance properties, helping to stop a fire from spreading.​

​As our Interlocking Concrete 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, Standard Concrete Blocks are so strong, that they provide great protection from blasts. Are you looking for blast-proof building materials? Then look no further than our concrete blocks.

Moreover, Standard Concrete 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.

How do you store Standard Concrete Blocks?

  • Store the concrete blocks in a cool, dry place. Make sure they are protected from severe weather conditions, to help maintain their quality.
  • Make sure the ground of the storage area is perfectly flat.
  • Keep the concrete blocks close to the site of work, to make transportation easier.
  • Do not stack the concrete blocks higher than two to three blocks at a time.

Which is better, red bricks or concrete blocks?

That really depends on what your building requirements are. Concrete blocks and red bricks each come with their own strengths.

Concrete blocks tend to be lighter than red bricks, which makes for better workability.

In addition, concrete blocks usually offer better resistance to natural disasters such as earthquakes and hurricanes- which shows how durable they are.

Moreover, it is easier to paint over concrete blocks, than it is to paint over red bricks. Paint can destroy brickwork, and when you paint on red bricks, you have to paint over the mortar as well.
