Concrete Blocks Concrete blocks also provide insulation towards cold and heat climate. Concrete block is unaffected by termites or intense temperatures and is also soundproof. As concrete blocks are very strong, they provide good stability to a structure. The durability and power of solid concrete blocks make them perfect for partitions, and they can also be applied inside the production of load-bearing partitions.

Hollow Blocks Hollow concrete blocks carry void area more than 25% of the gross area. Solid place of hollow bricks needs to be extra than 50%. Hollow blocks are fabricated from lightweight aggregates so they are lightweight and easier to install. Hollow blocks are frequently used to construct huge structures like boundary fences. The decreased quantity of concrete used to make every block adds as much as tremendous savings in price for the materials for the whole wall.
