Precast concrete kentledge blocks are used to act as ballast or counterweights for fencing, hoarding, scaffolding, or for various temporary works. By using precast concrete kentledge blocks for above ground/no dig fencing and hoarding systems you avoid the risk of costly service strikes. They can also be attached to wire ropes which are fixed to the structure to provide greater stability.
Elite’s huge variety of 50N/mm2 blocks means that whatever the application we are bound to have a block or combination of blocks that will meet your requirements.
Our blocks are used extensively by maritime fabrication businesses for use in the off-shore wind turbine sector and by companies in the on-shore wind farm/wind turbine industries, as counterweights for port/dock side cranes (for example as strand jack guy rope anchors) and are used extensively in dry docks for ship supports.
Elite offer a choice of products which can be used as kentledge/ballast blocks. The blocks shown and highlighted in red below are our most popular. Should you require different sizes then please refer to the rest of the table for size and style options.
