An innovative concrete modular construction system
TBlocks is an innovative concrete modular construction system, designed to make it easier to design and build a range of structures for effective coastal defence, flood prevention and earth retention.
VERSATILE, INTERLOCKING DESIGN
The interlocking design of TBlocks provides guaranteed interlock in two planes for a highly stable, resistant structure that accommodates moderate differential settlement without structural damage.
FAST, SCALABLE CONSTRUCTION
TBlocks enables fast construction using standard site equipment. This allows shorter build programmes and impressive reductions in cost and disruption.
TBlocks requires a smaller footprint than alternative construction methods like armour stone, due to its guaranteed interlock in two planes, allowing more usable space on beaches and shorelines.
EXCELLENT WAVE DISSIPATION
The result of extensive research, the innovative shape of TBlocks diffracts and dissipates wave energy to minimise overtopping and scouring.
SIZE AND FINISH
Made from durable high-grade concrete supplied by Tarmac, TBlocks offers a highly resistant, maintenance-free solution.
By aligning TBlocks in different ways, the structure can be made to follow the contours of a riverbank. This allows a variety of temporary or permanent structures to be built for stabilisation, erosion control and flood prevention.
The interlocking design of TBlocks and its wave diffraction characteristics make it ideal for design and construction of a range of marine structures.
TBlocks can be used to construct temporary or permanent retaining walls for earth retention and slope stabilisation.
TBlocks enables a fast, effective response to extreme weather conditions. It allows structures to be built quickly using standard site equipment to protect infrastructure and assets from damage.
TBlocks is manufactured in a highly controlled process with rigorous testing and quality assurance at every stage of the process. All of our products are manufactured in the UK and certified under BES 6001 Responsible sourcing.
