Bautex Block – Structural Elements

Traditional Concrete Forming Techniques Work with Bautex Block

Installers can cre­ate lin­tel, ring and bond beams, and pilasters using typ­i­cal con­crete form­ing tech­niques and a chain­saw. All of those ele­ments can be made with the same mod­i­fi­ca­tion of the block, depend­ing on loca­tion and ori­en­ta­tion of the wall. To cre­ate those ele­ments, installers use a chain saw to remove the cen­ter of the block to cre­ate a larg­er cav­i­ty for the con­crete.
