  • Cross blocks for a partition wall.
  • T-blocks for an end wall or cavity wall.
  • Corner blocks for an uppermost end wall or cavity wall.
  • Top blocks for the uppermost partition for sealing caps.

 

Cross blocks and T-blocks are provided with slots to accommodate the reinforcement. The most common sizes are available from stock. Cross blocks can also be produced with openings for sockets, or with a chine anchor complete with wire end and plastic caps or pouring cone for the positioning of the following wall. Versions with a staggered upper wall and/or floor are also possible.
