Dense Paint Grade


Dense Paint Concrete Blocks. The materials used in the manufacture of our paint grade blocks enables a close textured finish to be obtained. Where appearance is important such as factory units, schools, offices, shopping precincts etc our paint grade are ideal. The high density of WDL blocks give them excellent sound properties.

hey offer an excellent background surface texture to receive a range of proprietary paints which will aesthetically enhance the features of the building. Our dense paint grade blocks are manufactured and tested in accordance to BS EN771-3, only selected crushed natural limestone aggregates, and ordinary Portland cement are used in the production. Although our blocks are consistent in texture and tolerances, we cannot guarantee its natural colour. Slight variations in its colour can occur due to the use of natural aggregates. When block laying, we strongly recommend that our Paint grade blocks should be taken from different stacks/loads, site blending can then prevent colour banding. Rigorous inspection and testing procedures are carried out on a daily basis, the blocks are also independently tested and these test certificates are available upon request.

High levels of sound reduction properties can be obtained with our dense paint grade blocks which are not necessarily perceived with non-aggregate concrete products. They also provide excellent fire resistance properties, they are non-combustible and conform to class o rating. To compliment our range, coursing units are available in brick size or full length units in 100mm / 140mm thick. The physical characteristics of our Paint grade blocks make them suitable for a wide range of applications in load bearing and non-load bearing internally and externally.

*In regards to our production weights, they are a typical average as due to seasonal and geographical variations they may vary.
