Virtabloc – The Simple Way To Build Walls
Virtablocs are 1800mm, 900mm, 600mm long x 600mm wide x 600mm high. Ideal for material, aggregate, recycling bays, temporary buildings and many other uses. The weight of each block is in the table below. The blocks are manufactured using our eco mix concrete. For aggressive environments we can also manufacture the blocks using C50 Concrete for improved chemical resistance.
Virtabloc R – Reinforced Wall Construction
Virtabloc R are 1800mm, 900mm, 600mm long x 600mm wide x 600mm high. They are manufactured with ducts cast into them that are set to one side. The offset gives improved structural performance. Rebar is then threaded through the blocks and cement grouted in place. This construction creates a cantilever retaining wall that uses the foundation as part of the structural element. Walls can be built from 1.2 to 4.8m high using Virtabloc R. For higher walls see our Stackabloc R range. For more information about retaining wall design and build go to our reinforced block walls page.
Patent Pending– We have filed for a patent and design for this product.
Virtabloc C – Corner Block
Virtabloc R are 1800mm and 1200mm, long x 600mm wide x 600mm high. The blocks are used to allow walls to be built at any angle. Take a look at the image below to see an example.
