The concrete blocks produced by Ballut Blocks Ltd for wall construction are available in the following range:
As one of malta's leading manufactures of hollow concrete blocks, Ballut Blocks Ltd. offers a range of blocks that satisfies all the local building requirements. Available in standard and fairfaced finishes the concrete blocks are suitable for external and internal loadbearing and non-loadbearing walls. They can also be utilized below D.P.C level, and in every situation provide excellent sound and thermal insulation.
The above range of concrete blocks is also available in a fairfaced finish. This special close-grained even surface finish allows the blockwork to be left plain when a normal finish is not necessary. Where a more decorativce but still economical finish is required, internally or externally, paint can be applied directly to the block, saving on the usual plastering and rendering costs.
Halfsplitter blocks that can easily be divided into halves, are available. All blocks are light grey in colour. Other colours or the addition of other materials such as quartz or additives, are available, if specified for large orders.

12 inch Block: This unit offers the architect further flexibility in specifying composite block work system that may enhance the bearing capacity of wall.
9 inch 'Double' Block: The block has been developed to meet high high load requirements. Its compressive strenght of 7.00 N/mm2 makes it ideal for such use.
9 inch 'Single' Block: The 9 inch single concrete block has the same 229mm width as that of the 'double' block. However this block has a thinner web section, making it lighter and more economical. It is also suitable for loadbearing construction.
7 and 6 inch Block: These blocks can be utilized for loadbearing partition walls or as part of a cavity wall construction with other concrete block or stone.
4 1/2 inch Block: This is a non loadbearing type of block which is normally used for partitioning. Its thin section saves on space and economy while at the same time it retains excellent sound insulation qualities.
