BLOCK & BRICK


Alpha Quarry Products Ltd manufacture high quality concrete block and brick  in a wide range of sizes and strengths (up to 25n). Only well shaped stones from our company grit stone quarries are used in production. This ensures the block and brick have a consistent finish with an excellent key for plastering. The aggregates and cement are blended in high speed pan mixers that distribute the cement evenly throughout the mix so the target strength is guaranteed in all blocks. We manufacture with modern automated block machinery which is continually checked and updated by our technical team to ensure a consistent production process of a high quality product. The block and brick are then strapped in bales for safe delivery to the customer site. Our experienced delivery staff will endeavour to place the products on site where requested. Sample blocks and bricks are routinely selected for testing by an external accredited company. The shape, finish, weight and strength are tested to prove conformity with the BS EN 771-3 standard.
