blocks

Bashaw Concrete manufactures two sizes of concrete blocks.  Large blocks are 2.5 ft x 2.5 ft x5 ft and weigh approximately 4200 lbs.  Small blocks are 20 inch x 20 inch x 40 inch and weigh approximately 1200 lbs.  All blocks are made of returned/recycled concrete keeping excessive used concrete from filling our local landfills. If a block is made with a multiple pour, the joints are reinforced with steel.

All our blocks use ½ inch multi-strand cable for lift loops. Rebar is NEVER used.  Bashaw concrete only uses multi-strand cable for lift loops.  Our lifting cable has a breaking strength of over 40,000 lbs.

Check out the slideshow below showing a multitude of uses for blocks, large or small.  Click on any image to bring up a larger photo.

Patterned Blocks

Large blocks are available in three patterns: Quarrystone, Cobblestone and Cutstone . Our stock level in Blocks is always changing, if your project requires a larger number of blocks please try to give us some lead time as it may take a while to get enough made for you.  Click on any image below to open a larger, more detailed image in a popup.
