Shotblast Concrete Blocks
Shotblast Concrete Blocks have a textured, pitted finish. The technique of shot-blasting involves the blasting of precision block faces with "shot". This creates a relief texture which not only gives depth to the concrete block, but exposes the inner aggregates. The intensity of the Shotblast can be adjusted from light to heavy for more design flexibility. Both structural an non-structural shotblast concrete blocks are available. Shotblast concrete blocks are available a variety of both common and specialty concrete block sizes.
