Different Sizes of V-Wedge Blocks
In this article, we will discuss the sizes of v-wedge blocks we typically provide. One of our most common concrete bin or barrier blocks is what we refer to as a v-wedge block. These blocks can be useful for a number of different projects, ranging from large scale projects, to small ones. So, before we discuss the different block sizes we offer, why are v-wedge blocks called v-wedge blocks? In fact, v-wedge blocks are named after their unique, but helpful, system that they use to interlock with one another. Each block comes equipped with two sets of v-wedge shapes. One set can be found protruding out of the top and side of the block, while the other set is a reverse, inverted version of the same wedge and is on the bottom and opposite side as the first set. This way of interlocking is easy, efficient, and smooth. The blocks easily slide together, making them quite useful for many alternate projects. When it comes to sizes, we offer quite a few sizes, each weighing and measuring a different amount. Now, here are some of the v-wedge block sizes that we provide: a 6’ x 3’ x 3’ block that weighs 8,100lbs, a 3’ x 3’ x 3’ block that weighs 4,050lbs, a 6’ x 2’ x 2’ block that weighs 3,600lbs, a 4’ x 2’ x 2’ block that weighs 2,400lbs, a 3’ x 2’ x 2’ block that weighs 1,800lbs, and a 2’ x 2’ x 2’ block that weighs 1,200lbs. In regards to transportation, five of the 6’ x 3’ x 3’ blocks can fit per trailer. Ten of the 3’ x 3’ x 3′ blocks can fit per trailer. Thirteen of the 6’ x 2’ x 2’ blocks can fit per trailer. Eighteen of the 4’ x 2’ x 2’ blocks can fit per trailer. Twenty-six of the 3’ x 2’ x2’ blocks can fit per trailer. Lastly, thirty-seven of the 2’ x 2’ x 2’ blocks can fit per trailer. In regards to block size, if you choose to have these v-wedge blocks delivered to your job site, you will have to have the proper equipment that is able to offload the blocks. So, your offloading equipment must be able to reach a height of at least 7’+, because of the fact that the trailer is usually 5’ in height, and each block is normally 2’ in height. The equipment must also be able to withstand carrying the weight of your blocks. So, naturally, your equipment must be able to lift weights ranging from 8,100-1,200lbs. So, in what ways can you use v-wedge blocks in your projects? Well, some of the ways our customers have previously utilized our blocks are as follows: creating bins used for storage, parking lot management, controlling traffic/roads, general weight, fuel and/or propane tank protection, anchor weights, concrete retaining walls, road district storage, utilities security, and separation and protection of property. With all the different sizes and weights, you are bound to find a v-wedge block that fits your particular need. One other cool feature to note about these v-wedge blocks is that you can add decorative faces onto the block. These can add a bit of personalization, character, and uniqueness.
