Blocks for the Future
Island Block & Paving’s Blocks for the Future range has achieved Global Green Tag certification.
The concrete Blocks for the Future come in a fantastic range of colours & unique finishes. Blocks for the Future are the premium choice for building designers who are after a building block that not only looks great, but benefits the environment. Blocks for the Future are more sustainable than other products on the market because they are manufactured with recycled glass aggregates which provide a unique surface finish.
Blocks for the Future are available for designers in a variety of colours which can be supplied in exposed aggregate, diamond brushed or standard finishes, all on a job-specific basis. Designers can request free samples and specify their selected finish. 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. 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.
Key benefits include:
- Unique finish that glistens in the light
- True to size, easy to lay
- Locally manufactured
- Up to 40% recycled glass aggregate used.
- Up to 40% less natural resources used.
- 10% reduction in cement usage = lower CO2 emissions.
