Casting blocks

Casting blocks are ideal for very high walls and walls that bear heavy loads. They are an excellent solution for foundations and basement walls that have to withstand soil pressure.

Erecting a house frame with casting blocks is quick and easy. Blocks are piled on top of each other, acting as a casting mould. With casting blocks, there is no need to use wood planks or masonry or to unmould after casting.

For single casting, the recommended mould height is 1.6 metres. When ordering concrete, you should mention that the concrete is intended for casting block application. The concrete mass has to meet the following requirements:

  • strength at least K35, weather-proof
  • maximum grain size 8 mm
  • slump S4

Blocks meet the requirements of standard SFS-EN 15435.
