Dense concrete blocks/bricks
22.5N/mmto BS EN 771-3

Stowell dense concrete blocks offer the builder a full range of solid concrete blocks with a well-established durability, low drying shrinkage and proven acoustic properties that will fulfil most applications. They are manufactured to BS EN 771-3 using Class 1 limestone aggregates.

The blocks are available in a standard face size of 440 x 215mm and in thicknesses of 100mm and 140mm in a standard finish (suitable for rendering).
