Elite Precast Concrete are the largest manufacturer of interlocking concrete
blocks in the UK
Elite Precast Concrete Ltd are the largest manufacturer of interlocking concrete blocks and traffic management / security barriers in the UK. Elite operate from two factories in Telford where all of the precast concrete products are manufactured using the same high strength (50N/mm2) concrete which is batched on site from high quality BS EN approved aggregates and cement.
They have been in business for over 11 years and have never used recycled / waste materials in the concrete which is in turn therefore extremely durable and has got a design life of over 100years.
The interlocking blocks have a huge range of uses from the construction of material storage bays, retaining walls to being used as counter weights (also known as ‘’Kentledge blocks’’) for perimeter hoarding and security fencing.
Elite’s concrete barriers are used throughout the UK for a huge variety of projects playing vital roles in temporary works schemes such as traffic management, edge protection, perimeter security and workforce safety (reducing the risk of collisions with HGVs).
Elite are also approved for use in the rail, defence and nuclear industries and in the utility sector being proud holders of RISQS, UVDB and JOSCAR accreditations.
The company holds kitemarks for a wide range of drainage products and use the same highly regulated Quality Management Systems for the manufacture of all of the products.
