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.
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.
Watch the video above to see how the TBlocks construction process happens. Successful construction in coastal and river conditions requires that the part constructed structure is stable and remains intact under exposure to storm conditions.
The regular shape and recessed lifting eyes allow it to be placed easily and accurately with standard site equipment.
After extensive research, the innovative shape of TBlocks diffracts and dissipates wave energy to minimise overtopping and scouring.
Made from durable high-grade concrete supplied by Tarmac, TBlocks offers a highly resistant, maintenance-free solution.
TBlocks enables a fast, effective response to extreme weather conditions, allowing structures to be built quickly using standard site equipment.
TBlocks requires a smaller footprint than alternative construction methods like armour stone, allowing more usable space on beaches and shorelines.
By aligning TBlocks in different ways, the structure can be made to follow the contours of a riverbank.
The interlocking design of T-Blocks and its wave diffraction characteristics make it ideal for design and construction of a range of marine structures.
TBlocks is manufactured in a highly controlled process with rigorous testing and quality assurance at every stage of the process.
TBlocks can be used to construct temporary or permanent retaining walls for earth retention and slope stabilisation.
