Forticrete Launches New Range of Radius Blocks

Forticrete, the UK's leading manufacturer of architectural masonry products, has extended its range of Dense Concrete Masonry with the addition of a new Radius Block, developed to create curved blockwork, softening the aesthetic of standard masonry block.

As part of the company's ECOBLOCK range of masonry, these machine manufactured decorative concrete facing blocks are manufactured using up to 45% recycled content. The new Radius Block is available in various finishes and in all standard Dense Concrete Masonry colours to ensure architects and specifiers have access to an array of attractive solutions that will create the ideal finish for any building.

John Lambert, general manager at Forticrete, commented: "Forticrete has long been the driving force at the forefront of innovation in architectural concrete block development. Therefore the decision to extend our range of Dense Concrete Masonry with the addition of a new Radius Block was a simple one.

"Developed as part of our drive for continuous improvement, the new Radius Block is a cost effective and more readily available substitute to radial precast concrete specials. In addition, the new Radius Block provides a far greater blend with standard masonry blocks to deliver subtly curved masonry blockwork."

The new Radius Block boasts a 490mm outer radius, a 380mm outer face, 300mm inner face, 100mm thickness and is 215mm in height. The block is also available in a half block option which provides a 185mm outer face.

Finishes featured in the Radial Block range include Shot-blasted, which provides a weathered appeal, Fairfaced, which provides a structural product and finish in one, the popular Burnished Venezia and Polished Florentine which is used to create expanses of reflective walls.
