Concrete block FAQs 

 

We've been working with paving slabs since 2005. Whilst working with these paving products, we’ve handled and supplied building materials, which has made us experts in working with cinder blocks for projects both large and small.  

Continue reading below for the answers to the most frequently asked questions we’ve received about concrete blocks. 

 

What are concrete blocks? 

 

Concrete blocks are dense blocks that are primarily designed for the likes of walls as load-bearing products. As they are universally used within construction and outdoor projects alike, they often go by many names, including breeze blocks, hollow blocks, and concrete deck blocks. 

While we specialise in paving products, such as concrete paving and block paving, concrete blocks are wholly different products. Above all else, they are designed to be strong and durable enough to serve as load-bearing walls.  

This makes them distinct from concrete pavers, as cinder blocks are designed with strength as their primary focus, rather than many of the aesthetically pleasing pavers. After all, concrete blocks are most suitable for areas where they won’t be seen on their own, such as plastered walls. Likewise, while block paving is also considered very durable and can be visually alluring, they are best suited for heavy traffic floors, such as driveways. 

 

What types of breeze blocks do you sell? 

 

From lightweight concrete blocks to highly dense breeze blocks, we provide a variety of types of cinder blocks to accommodate any project that needs strong and durable load-bearing building materials.  

These products include the lightweight concrete blocks, Masterblock Masterlite blocks, which are rated at the standard strength of 7.3N/mm2 yet only weigh 1450kg/m3. We also offer dense concrete blocks, Masterblock Masterdenz blocks, which are just as strong as the Masterlite blocks but are much better for soundproofing. 

 

How many concrete blocks per m2 are in your packs? 

 

Our selection of breeze blocks comes in packs of varying sizes, yet each block is 440 x 100 x 215.  

You get 36 blocks in the Masterdenz pack and 54 blocks in the Masterlite pack, which is how many you can expect when considering how many concrete blocks are on a pallet. This equates to approximately 3.6 m2 to 5.4 m2 in each pack, respectively.
