Blocks for the Future are a premium architectural block which have Green tag certification.
Blocks for the future offer designers the opportunity to create high quality, sustainable structure using architectural building blocks comprising coloured recycled glass aggregates that will last a lifetime. With a patented range of finishes including smooth, exposed aggregate, diamond brushed and polished, Blocks for the Future are making it easy to be “green”.
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 surface finish that glistens in the light
- Striking finishes
- Design flexibility
- Cost competitive
- Greentag certified
