Traditionally, cob blocks are laid on their flat. However, here at Earth Blocks Ltd we have developed a range of cob blocks that can be constructed on their edge. Our 125mm cob blocks, for example, not only provide cost efficiency to any given project, they also deliver high-strength capabilities.
Manufacturing Weight = 21.3kg
Dry Weight = 18.5kg
Cob Blocks p/s/m = 12
Compression Strength = 8N (spread load)
Cost per Cob Block = £3.80 (+ VAT)
There are no specialist skills required to install our cob blocks. A good, general builder or even a competent DIY’er can achieve an effective construction. Adopting the same methodology as conventional block laying is good practice and you don’t have to be a cob specialist!
