Interlocking concrete blocks, are a versatile product that can be used for a range of applications. Our high strength are an effective flood defence, block wall, storage bay or retaining wall solution. If you are in need of interlocking concrete blocks for a project of any kind, get in touch today to find out more about our hire and installation services.
We offer a reliable and fast delivery service so if you need interlocking concrete blocks in a hurry, don’t hesitate to get in touch. All of our blocks are BS EN 1317 certified and our expert team can help you with installation if you need assistance.
Interlocking concrete blocks come in a range of sizes, from 2 sections all the way up to 10 sections. 4, 6 and 8 section concrete blocks are the most popular sizes, but you may require different sizes depending on the nature of your project.
An 8 section interlocking concrete block weighs 2400kg and measures 1600mm x 800mm x 800mm. Every concrete block contains a lifting pin, which makes it simple for you to rearrange the blocks as and when you need to. However, we can reconfigure the blocks if you need us to.
Interlocking blocks can be configured into temporary retaining walls and barriers that prevent land slippage on construction sites, shore up foundations during groundworks, and create a secure physical blockade to protect workers.
Once stacked and secured, the blocks are impossible to move and can withstand water pressure and fire, acting as a barricade to control flood waters and preventing a fire from breaching a perimeter.
These blocks are used in countless scenarios as a safety precaution, whether to mitigate environmental risks, prevent unauthorised access, or act as a partition to hold back soil or store loose materials.
Clearway provides concrete interlocking blocks in various sizes and weights and can recommend the right blocks depending on the purpose and the shape of the structure you’d like to construct on your site.
The above tables show the dimensions available, although alternative sizes may be available on request. Features include:
If you wish to construct a retaining wall, our engineers will discuss the size, weight, and position of the wall to ensure your selected blocks are suitable, recommending higher density, heavier blocks where necessary to provide the right supportive strength.
Concrete interlocking blocks are a popular option for construction site managers because their natural fire resistance, the weight of precast concrete, and the flexibility of the configuration make them suited to many applications.
Concrete blocks are fire resistant, owing to the concrete mix, the strength of solid concrete and the thickness of each individual block. They can act as a fire break or a temporary containment area, either as an emergency shelter or to protect high-value assets and machinery.
Blocks can be erected as a storage bay for materials such as grit, salt, and sand or as a storage facility for waste or recycling. Separating waste items or soil from the working areas of a site ensures safety, efficiency and keeps waste products in a particular place until collection.
Retaining walls are used on sites where there is a risk of land slippage or mudslides, which can potentially be extremely dangerous. Walls are also used to support recently dug foundations, keep materials in a designated space and prevent spillages in high winds or wet weather when soil and loose materials are more likely to move.
The strength of concrete interlocking blocks also lends itself to ballast applications, with blocks erected as a counterweight to keep scaffolding and other structures secure.
Our solutions can be used to build walls for floor barriers, traffic segregation and security barriers.
They can also be used as a security solution in areas where you need to prevent unauthorised vehicle access. It’s quick and easy to section off an area with interlocking concrete blocks, and they are sturdy enough to withstand the impact of a car.
They are also effective for traffic management as well. For example, if you are hosting an event of some kind and you need to direct traffic and protect pedestrians from busy roads, interlocking concrete blocks are the perfect solution.
In flood prone areas where there is a need for defences that are quick and easy to install, interlocking concrete blocks can be very effective. They are simple to install and stack, so flood defences can be erected very quickly.
These are just some of the potential applications for interlocking concrete blocks, but they can be used for all different kinds of projects. If you give us a call, we can discuss your needs and help you to decide which size of interlocking concrete blocks is right for you.
All of our concrete blocks are very cost effective and it is incredibly simple to install them and change the configuration. They are also very durable so there is little need for maintenance.
We may advise an alternative solution to an interlocking concrete barrier depending on your individual needs. If your primary concern is traffic management or protection from fly-tipping and unwanted guests, we offer precast solutions such as jersey barriers, TVCBs and Heras fencing.
Whether you are building a retaining wall, trying to manage traffic, or you need to improve security, we can help with all of your interlocking concrete block hire needs, so get in touch today and we can discuss your project.

Having partnered with authorities such as the emergency services, construction businesses and transport sites, we know the ins and outs of site security and pass on our extensive knowledge to each of our clients.
Interlocking blocks are used in numerous applications, and the best-suited blocks will vary with applications, with different considerations for retaining walls, flood defences or temporary vehicle barriers.
For example, a blockade to prevent vehicular access will normally need to be tougher than a material storage bay to ensure it can deter intentional trespassers. Clearway are happy to offer professional advice on your requirements.
