Elite are proud to present the ultimate interlocking block – Legato™, the name coming from the Italian for ‘tied together’.
These high strength blocks are designed to provide a solution for a huge variety of projects including material storage bays, blast walls, retaining walls, push walls, fire break walls, counter weights / kentledge, salt storage, silage clamps, industrial buildings or for various temporary works for example constructing cofferdams or creating solid barriers between open rail lines and those being replaced thus avoiding the need for disruptive ‘’all line blocks’’ by allowing ‘’adjacent live line working’’
If you’re looking for the benefits of in-situ concrete i.e. incredible long term durability and strength without the expense, disruption, long build time and lack of flexibility associated with a ‘cast on site’ approach then Legato ™ blocks are for you. Call our team on 01952 588885 or email email@example.com
We can provide a full turnkey package of services including design, transport and installation – all available through our approved contractors.
Structural design reviews for existing and new projects carried out by an independent structural engineer are available on request.

Elite are the only company in Europe to manufacture interlocking blocks using high strength (50N/mm2) concrete. This allows our Legato blocks to exhibit extreme levels of durability, combined with the flexibility of having their own cast-in lifting pin. As each standard block will build 1.28m2 of wall, they provide an incredibly quick solution in a wide variety of applications.
In addition, because the blocks do not contain anything other than high quality, locally sourced aggregates and Portland Cement, you can be assured that your investment will last a lifetime.
See below for the full range and specifications.
Legato™ Interlocking block range
Our Legato™ blocks come in various sizes – including flat top versions – the standard block is an LG8 1600mm x 800mm x 800mm (highlighted in the table below) and weighs in at 2400 kgs.
As each Legato™ block has its own lifting pin cast into it – you can easily change the way in which they are configured without the need for specialist lifting equipment or grabs.
Durability, strength and availability are the key features of these blocks and a next-day nationwide service means that you are never more than 24 hours away from taking delivery.
Typical loads… Legato block walls
1. These loading figures are for guidance only – if in doubt consult a structural engineer.
2 The retained material should be allowed to naturally fall against the wall as it is stacked.
3 These loading tables relate to specific materials with a typical density and angle of repose, stacked to specific heights and slopes.
4 The client should ensure that the walls are built on a suitable base.
5 The density and angle of repose of each material shown are typical values only.
