Hollow blocks, It is a combination of a mixture of OPC cement quarry post, setting chemicals, and water. After combining all the products, the result is a wet paste. Then, molded into a form of blocks. There are two kinds of concrete blocks, hollow blocks and solid.
Why hollow blocks?
Generally, Hollow blocks have high durability. It is strong and can withstand high pressure and vibration. Hollow blocks can survive in case of any fire scenario. After the completion of the digging of hollow blocks, they don’t need any maintenance. Hence, it results in lower maintenance charges. Some of the other advantages of using hollow blocks
Cost-efficient: At first, it is of less cost. And also, it reduces the requirement of construction materials. On the whole, it decreases the cost of construction.
Low maintenance: Not only the reduction in cost, it also requires less maintenance. And hence, lowered maintenance cost.
Has high insulation property: Hollow blocks play a primary role in preventing cold and heat entering into the building since it has good insulation quality.
Durable: Hollow concrete blocks are highly durable. Hence, it bears heavy load and weight
Good bonding: Hollow blocks enable firm bonding between mortar and plaster.
Rapid Execution of work
Increase in floor area
Reduces construction cost
Better insulation properties
Good bonding of mortar and plaster
Ground shelter construction, Road construction, Bridge girder, etc use hollow blocks.
It also helps to implement Floors, beams, and columns.
Hollow Blocks Sizes
Some of the standard sizes of hallow blocks are as follow:
|4″ * 8″ * 16″|
|6″ * 8″ * 16″||8″ * 8″ * 16″|
|6″ * 8″ * 12″||8″ * 8″ * 12″|
Hollow Blocks Price
Solid Block (inch) 12” 6” 8” [ Rs.22 ]
Solid Block (inch) 16” 4” 8” [ Rs.20 ]
