Construction in Haiti, Concrete Blocks, Concrete masonry units

Write a comment

When it comes to BLOCS -- Concrete Blocks or Concrete masonry units -- in Haiti there are two types: BLOC Vibre, made on a Vibration Block Making Machine, and BLOC a Main , those made by hand. Which one do you use in your construction?

One of the block makers told me it is not the fact that the blocks are made by hands that make them less solid or even dangerous. People just try to yield too much block out of one bag of cement

The average block maker in Haiti produces 40 concrete blocks out of one bag of cement. The block maker told me If you bring the number down to 30, you will get 30 good solid blocks

Weather it is true of false, my cousin swears by the Concrete blocks made on a Vibration Block Making Machine.
