Block types:

In General Mudtec produce 2 types of blocks with holes and blocks without holes, each of which can be stabilized or un-stabilized depending on their use and requirements.

  • Blocks with holes: The holes are great for linking the slab to the walls using rio or likewise for linking the roof to the wall or slab. Through careful planning services can run through these holes also such as electrical conduit. The holes also provide a block that is easier to handle and install as you can use the holes to grip the block and it is slightly lighter than our solid block.
  • Solid blocks: The solid blocks have the advantage that they can be installed on their side to create a thinner faster to install wall, such as an internal wall. They also have a slightly greater thermal mass than our blocks with holes.
