Blocks for the Future are a premium architectural block which have achieved Global Green Tag certification.
Blocks for the Future from Island Block & Paving offer designers the opportunity to create high quality, sustainable structures using architectural building blocks comprising of coloured recycled glass aggregates that will last a lifetime. The Blocks for the Future range is available in a patented range of surface finishes including smooth, exposed aggregate, diamond brushed, refined and polished. Furthermore, Blocks for the Future are Global Green Tag certified so make an ideal choice for sustainable building projects.
Blocks for the Future are manufactured with up to 40% recycled glass aggregate. After manufacture the blocks are then treated to expose the recycled glass coloured aggregate on the surface, these finishes have never been seen in the marketplace before and are unique to Island Block & Paving. Above all, the environmental benefits are enormous as natural resourced aggregates such as sand and metal dust, are replaced in manufacture by a potential landfill product. Due to the cementitious value of the finely crushed recycled glass, cement usage is reduced by 10% – therefore importantly reducing CO2 emissions whilst still achieving excellent product strength. The Pavers for the Future are available to order to a range of colours to suit any project. View our extensive colour range here.
