WoodBlocX™ walls are built with many individual pieces of timber (similar to bricks), that are pinned together using plastic dowels. Each piece of timber – selected to use only the strongest parts of the tree and never the heart – is then pressure-treated twice, and because they are pre-drilled, the treatment penetrates almost 100% of the wood, giving a working life of 30+ years. Design calculations can be provided for any scale of project.
A WoodBlocX™ wall is guaranteed to last for at 15 years. The dowels can each withstand 0.9 tonnes of sheer force, and the walls are strong under both tension and compression, so in some cases, they are actually stronger than the stone alternative.
With a WoodBlocX installation, everything required for the wall is supplied, so there are no hidden costs, no need to calculate timber or stone requirements or factor in offcuts – all of that is done. Plus there’s no need for foundations or mortar. The BlocX can be left to weather naturally to create a rustic look, or painted to suit the client’s needs.
WoodBlocX™ timber blocks can be used to create retaining walls for landscaping, and enable slopes and hills to be turned into terraces, borders and flat lawns.
The blocks are strong, durable, and much safer and easier to use than heavy railway sleepers.
