Grey Betta Blocks™
Baines make a full range of concrete grey blocks using Betta Block technology to satisfy the requirements of both residential and commercial projects. (see below to get the Betta Block technology story). Our commitment, ‘Quality First’, is your guarantee that you can order grey blocks from Baines with confidence.
The standard face dimension of concrete blocks is 390mm long by 190mm high which translates to a 400mm by 200mm module when you add the recommended 10mm mortar joint. Depending on your application, we supply concrete blocks in various widths from 90mm to 290mm to suit all projects. Note that half high’s, half, threequater, quarters and lintel blocks are also available.
Research and development never stops at Baines Masonry in our quest to remain at the cutting edge of masonry technology. This continual R&D resulted in the development of our Betta Block technology which reduces the weight of our grey blocks with no loss of strength all while reducing Baines environmental footprint. We have, in part, achieved this leap in technology by recycling waste products from power stations and blasts furnaces in our production process. A win-win for the environment and our concrete masonry.
Now that all our grey blocks are produced using the superior Betta Block technology, you know that you always get superior products every time you order masonry from Baines.
