Bescrete Blocks

Natural aggregate building blocks


Bescrete Fair FacedBescrete Blocks are cast in steel moulds onto steel pallets, compacted by vibration and then steam cured. At Besblock Ltd., we use the very highest precision machinery available in this field. This incorporates a unicontrolled vibration system which ensures a uniform density throughout the mould, giving a consistent test quality on every block. As a result, the high strengths attained in both the Bescrete Cellular and Hollow blocks are unmatched by most of our competitors.

The natural dense aggregates used in these products are sourced from different quarries. This can cause colour differences within the finished product. This is not a fault.
For this reason we do not recommend that Bescrete Paint Grade blocks be left undecorated.
