The Blocks are pressed at a rate of one every 8 seconds.

One set of equipment will make 7000 to 8000 blocks per 10 hour day - enough blocks to build nearly three homes per day.

 

Five lengths of conveyor deliver the blocks directly to the site and placed straight into the wall.

We can make a variety of blocks from different kinds of soil.

Another company's blocks vary because their equipment is not as strong and each block is not identical in size and shape.

Note the sharp edges in the close-ups of the blocks (above). Engineered to 1/16th inch variation in dimensions. Simpler building - a bond-beam or ring-beam around the top of the completed wall will even out any small discrepancies.

 

(At Right) The last block shows how another company's blocks vary because their equipment is not as strong and each block is not identical in size and shape.

This block is supposed to be 10 inches but is ONLY 9 inches. Imagine the problems if you are expecting a 10 inch block and you build a wall (or house) where each block is off 1 inch or more.

We compress only from the bottom which allow us to CONTROL all three dimensions. Our blocks are exactly 10 X 14 X 4 inches or 25.4 X 35.6 X 9 cm.
