6 Inch-Hollow Block

Hollow Blocks is a concrete block also referred as foundation block. These blocks are precast masonry units made out of fly ash concrete mix with 4 hollow cavities and are intended for use in the construction of both load bearing and non-load bearing wall structures.This is one of the material highly used for wide range of construction industries. Hollow blocks are highly popular specially in the areas of school, colleges, compound walls and many of the gap filling areas.

Detailed Description for 6 Inch-Hollow Block

About Product: 6 inch-Hollow Blocks

Hollow Blocks are defined as those blocks which have core wide area greater than 25% of gross area having one or more holes open at both sides.

A concrete masonry unit (CMU) – also called hollow block, concrete brick, concrete block, cement block, besser block, breeze block and cinder block – is a large rectangular block used in building construction. Concrete blocks are made from cast concrete, e.g. Portland cement and aggregate, usually sand and fine gravel for high-density blocks.

Lower density blocks may use industrial wastes as an aggregate. Lightweight blocks can also be produced using aerated concrete.

 

 Features:

·          Consistency in finish.

·          Dimensional accuracy.

·          Light weight.

·          High quality.

·          Long life.

·          Reasonable price.

 

Applications:-

Concrete blocks can be used for many different types of applications whether the application is load bearing, structural or decorative. Load bearing applications of concrete blocks can either be veneer which is supporting a roof or a retaining wall which is supporting a large amount of soil. The typical shape of a concrete block is rectangular or square. They can also be customized to suit the design requirements of the project. List of common concrete block applications are mentioned below:-

• Retaining Walls 

• Siding

• Veneer

• Homes

• Commercial Properties

• Paving Applications

• Steps

• Landscaping Garden Beds

• Curbing and Edging

• Concrete Block Home

 

Advantages:

·         Energy efficient.

·         Strong, durable, versatile, safe, secure & robust.

·         Drastic saving in construction cost.

·         Saving in shuttering, plaster, mortar.

·         Structural performance can be engineered.

·         Insulation (Temperature, Sound, Fire).

·         Speeds up construction process.

 

Other Advantages :-

Highly Durable: The good concrete compacted by high pressure and vibration gives substantial strength to the block. Proper curing increase compressive strength of the blocks. 

Low Maintenance, Color and brilliance of masonry withstands outdoor elements.  

Load Bearing, strength can be specified as per the requirement.  

Fire Resistant- Provide thermal and sound insulation: The air in hollow of the block, does not allow outside heat or cold in the house. So it keeps house cool in summer and warm in           winter.  

• Environment Friendly, fly ash used as one of the raw materials.  

• Low insurance rates
