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.
