Rock Face Blocks

Are you building a wall or structure? Looking for a quick, easy and cost-effective solution for your construction purposes?

Then, you need Rock Face 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.​

Rock Face 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, Rock Face Blocks are suitable for permanent structures, such as retaining walls.

Did you know that you can use Rock Face Blocks to build temporary works? For example, for creating barriers for music festivals or for open rail lines.

Rock Face Blocks are slightly different to Standard Blocks and Flat Top Blocks- these do not have the rocky exterior on one face of the block that Rock Face Blocks do.

Also, Rock Face Blocks have 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.

What are Rock Face Blocks used for?

It couldn’t be easier to build a wall using Rock Face Blocks. Simply connect together the concrete blocks in a suitable design, and this will create the structure you need.

Rock Face 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!

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.
