Significant cost and time savings can be had by building with Liteblok 69 versus bricks or conventional concrete blocks. These close fitting forms are interlocking and self-aligning.  They stack quickly without the use of mortar or highly skilled labor. Traditional building materials tend to be very labor intensive with labor costs often being as much as four times that of material costs. Liteblok is designed to simplify construction and eliminate much of the labor costs.

Watch the 2 minute video below illustrating the stacking speed of Liteblok™ Jumbo

When building a Liteblok wall, the associated labor costs are typically less than 10% of the material costs. Building efficiencies are significantly better as the wall area built per worker per hour is far greater with Liteblok™ than with brick or CMU. Liteblok™ cavities (holes) are also much smaller than typical CMU (regular concrete block) openings resulting in the need for much less concrete (or grout) and rebar.

"I built a block wall five times faster with Liteblok™ than with CMU"

Unlike brick and CMU walls, the dry stacked design of Liteblok eliminates the need for expansion joints and creates a crack resistant wall. Thin stucco or textured paint is all that is needed to create a smooth wall free of mortar joint lines.

Unlike regular concrete, the unique properties of Liteblok™ allow it to withstand direct contact with flames from a fire. Liteblok™ 69 is ideal for fireplaces and outdoor barbeque pits.

Bond Beam and Lintel Blocks

A bond beam is a continuous beam, usually constructed of concrete and reinforced horizontally with rebar, on top of supporting walls. The purpose of the bond beam is to tie walls together and distribute weight evenly to the walls below. Our bond beam blocks are interlocking and mortarless and allow for vertical and horizontal steel reinforcement (see photo). The vertical rebar from blocks below (and above) can be tied to the horizontal rebar running through the blocks creating a strong structure with evenly distributed loads.

A lintel is a support beam above windows and doors. Lintel blocks are used in cases where flat bottom Liteblok blocks will not suffice. Our lintel blocks are similar in appearance to the bond beam block but have flat bottom surfaces

Our bond beam and lintel blocks are made of the same material and have the same physical properties as Liteblok 69.
