Why use concrete blocks?
Manufactured from cement, sand and aggregates, dense concrete blocks are well known throughout the construction industry for their exceptional durability and strength, which makes them perfect for a number of uses, including building load-bearing walls. A cost-effective solution, concrete blocks also allow for rapid construction on any project, saving you valuable time and money.
Concrete blocks also have a high thermal mass which means they are extremely effective at absorbing and storing heat. When a building is designed and constructed well, concrete blocks help keep it cool during the summer months and warm in the winter. This allows the building to achieve the highest levels of long-term energy efficiency possible and contributes to the building’s overall sustainability and low running costs.
As well as our dense concrete blocks, at Wright Minimix we also offer bulk bags of sand and aggregate and cement waterproof bags. To find out more or to place an order, contact us today on 0117 9582090.
