We produce solid dense concrete blocks at our site in Oxfordshire for bulk orders. The products we produce are the most durable and resilient blocks on the market. They have significantly grown in popularity, particularly in the agriculture, recycling and security industries. They offer numerous benefits, here are our experts top ten: 

  1. PRICE 

Interconnecting concrete blocks are fantastic value for money, with prices starting from £70 per block. As manufactures of the product we can offer interconnecting concrete blocks direct to market at competitive prices and discounts for bulk purchases. 

  1. ADAPTABLE 

Interconnecting concrete blocks are robust and are the ideal product for a partition wall, retaining wall, security blocks or storage bays. They provide all the benefits of a permanent solution, with the useful advantage of being flexible to enable walls to be reconfigured or relocated as your business needs change. 

  1. EASE OF USE

It is a non-combustible material and has a slow rate of heat transfer. Interconnecting concrete blocks have grown in popularity as the solution to segregating combustible waste streams. Concrete ensures structural integrity remains, fire compartmentation is not compromised and shielding from heat can be relied upon. Because of concrete’s inherent material properties, it can be used to minimise fire risk for the lowest initial cost while requiring the least in terms of ongoing maintenance. Other materials rely on fire protection, fire safety engineering or rate of loss of combustion.
