What Is An L-Shaped Concrete Block?
L-shaped concrete blocks are our most versatile product thanks to their innovative design. Named so for its L-like shape, the L-Block features a longer upright section (called the face) connected to a lower and shorter supporting section (called the foot), which carries the weight.
This concrete product is entirely self-supporting and comes in clean, durable modular panels that can be custom-designed and constructed to fit your specific needs. Face finish designs are also available for a more aesthetic look, which can come in patterns or textures.
What Are L-Blocks Used For?
Due to their very simple design, L-Blocks can be used for virtually any application, mostly either for retaining or containing purposes. So far, we’ve installed L-Blocks for uses such as:
- Retaining walls
- Shed walls
- Silage Pits
- Loading docks
- Bunkers for hay, silage, and fodder
- Storage walls for Grain, Fertiliser, Almond Hulls, etc.
- Waste recycling
And much, much more
We’ve found that L- Shaped Concrete Blocks are truly multi-purpose and versatile in function. Vikon Precast’s L-Blocks are all pre-cast and specifically engineered to fit your requirements, whether it’s for use in your backyard or in a large agricultural complex.
Features Of L-Shaped Concrete Blocks
One of the best things about L-Blocks is that they are available in different styles, depending on what you or your business needs. Vikon Precast offers both tapered or stepped blocks in a smooth, sleek finish. Each block is locked together using a 10mm galvanised locking plate at the back of the panel which creates one solid wall.
Most important of all, L-Blocks are incredibly easy to install. No concreting or drilling is required. Only a compacted level base for the blocks to sit on- ensuring the ground has a load bearing pressure of 150kPa. This results in an extremely fast and cost-effective solution and takes very little time to complete installation.
