  • Silage Clamps
  • Material Segregation
  • Traffic calming

to name but a few.

They provide a simple robust and cost effective solution to traditional L or A thin walled panels.

Concrete Marker Blocks

Precast concrete marker blocks are primarily used to aid in the location and identification of electric cables and other utility services that are buried underground. They can also be used to mark boundaries and other reference points.

They are made from precast concrete and are manufactured and tested in accordance with BS 1881 standards.

Available in a range of standard sizes with various legends, however any size or wording can be produced on

Block Types

Marker Blocks are manufactured in accordance with BS 1881 and standard blocks are listed in the table opposite.

Where applicable blocks have a recess on the underside which houses a 6mm galvanised bar to enable cable draw ropes etc. to be attached.

Any other requirements can be made to order.

Concrete Cable Protection Covers

Concrete Cable Protection Cover Tiles, also known as Cable Route Markers, are used frequently by utility companies to provide a clear indication to site staff who may be working close to underground electrical cables.

Covers act as a protective barrier against damage to buried electricity cables eliminating the risk of accidents and costly repairs. They can also be used to locate and identify other underground services.

Protection covers are reinforced precast concrete units manufactured and tested to BS 2484 specifications. The covers are imprinted, as standard, with the words ‘DANGER ELECTRICITY’ and are available in three sizes.

On request, bespoke covers can be manufactured to order for other services such as:

  • Telephone 
  • Gas 
  • Oil
  • Chemicals
  • Fibre Optics etc

Concrete Ducts

Precast concrete ducting is a system that allows for the accommodation of a number of different services from multiple utility and building providers.

The trough and lid system has a number of distinct advantages over direct bury and overhead suspension including…

PROVIDING A PROTECTIVE BARRIER FOR SERVICES AGAINST ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE

ACTING AS A CLEAR INDICATION OF UTILITY INSTALLATIONS
EASY ACCESS FOR MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS
HIGH LEVELS OF SECURITY

Concrete Security Barriers

The Elite Jersey barrier is an interlocking heavy duty system designed for the ultimate in anti-vehicle perimeter protection.

Cast from Elite’s standard high-strength concrete (50N/mm2) the barriers are quick and easy to install and are available direct from stock for next-day nationwide delivery.

The interlocking Jersey barriers are ideal for traffic management, flood defence, site security, rockfall, edge protection as well as for various temporary works.

Concrete Safety Barriers

Elite’s Temporary Vertical Concrete Barriers (TVCBs) are the perfect safety barrier for a huge variety of applications including many types of temporary works  and flood defence walls. They also make ideal Vehicle Security Barriers (VSBs), Vehicle Containment Barriers (VCBs) and can be used for Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM).

They are cast from Elite’s highly regarded high strength concrete (50N/mm2) which, combined with Highways Agency specification steel reinforcing means that the barriers meet the component requirements of EN 1317 ‘Compliant Road Restraint Systems for Temporary Safety Barriers’ (when installed by a Highways Agency approved contractor).

Concrete Ballast Blocks

Elite’s huge variety of 50N/mm2 blocks means that whatever the application we are bound to have a block or combination of blocks that will meet your requirements.

Our blocks are used extensively by maritime fabrication businesses for use in the off-shore wind turbine sector and by companies in the on-shore wind farm/wind turbine industries, as counterweights for port/dock side cranes (for example as strand jack guy rope anchors) and are used extensively in dry docks for ship supports.

Concrete Kentledge Blocks

Precast concrete kentledge blocks are used to act as ballast or counterweights for fencing, hoarding, scaffolding, or for various temporary works. By using precast concrete kentledge blocks for above ground/no dig fencing and hoarding systems you avoid the risk of costly service strikes. They can also be attached to wire ropes which are fixed to the structure to provide greater stability.

Concrete Firewalls

Elite are proud to present the ultimate engineered interlocking block – Legato™, the name coming from the Italian for ‘tied together’.

These high strength engineered blocks are cast from concrete which DOES NOT contain any recycled materials they are designed to provide a solution for a huge variety of projects including block wall flood defence, material storage bays (e.g. aggregates, salt, light scrap metals, wood chip, tyres, white goods, bales, RDF waste, black bag waste etc) blast walls, retaining walls, push walls, fire break walls as part of Fire Prevention Plans, counter weights / kentledge, salt storage, silage clamps, industrial buildings. 

Concrete Firewalls

Concrete Retaining Walls

Suitable for various temporary works for example constructing cofferdams or creating solid barriers between open rail lines and those being replaced thus avoiding the need for disruptive ‘all line blocks by allowing ‘adjacent live line working‘ / A.L.O. (Adjacent Line Open).

Interlocking Concrete Blocks

Elite are the only company in Europe to manufacture engineered interlocking blocks using high strength (50N/mm2) concrete. This allows our Legato blocks to exhibit extreme levels of durability, combined with the flexibility of having their own cast-in lifting pin. As each standard block will build 1.28m2 of wall, they provide an incredibly quick solution in a wide variety of applications.
