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.
