Sizes Of Blocks In The Allan Block Collections

 Due to the nature of concrete, blocks are not exactly the same size. When building a retaining wall, we do run into this and adjust as needed.

It is very normal for corner blocks to be a bit shorter than their full-size counter parts.

All concrete products from every brand are like this.

 

Allan Block collection block materials

All of the AB collections are a dry-stack without mortar or footings block system. There is no consumer noticeable difference in strength. They are all hollow core that must be filled with clear angular stone for drainage and strength. The same drainage system should be installed behind each of the different block styles in the Allan Block Collection.
