Baines Masonry’s environmental policy ensures they consider what is best for the environment in all aspects of their business. Being at the forefront of masonry technology, with the help of cutting edge of research and development, Baines has developed the Betta Block. This product allows Baines to further reduce their carbon footprint without compromising their product quality.

Baines Grey Betta Block™:

  • Is made of 65% heavy industry by-products, including bottom ash from coal fired furnaces and slag sands from steel production as replacement agregates. By using these by-products Baines is actively working to reducing the amount of landfill generated from coal fired power stations and the steel making industry.
  • Uses 40% less cement than normally required, with the addition of Descrete Super Fly Ash. 40% less cement means 40% less CO2 emissions.
  • Is transport advantageous. Lighter blocks mean more products per load, which in turn reduces the transport impact on the environment.

Baines’ Betta Block technology also has the advantage of significantly reducing the weight of their grey blocks with no loss of strength.

With superior Betta Block technology, it’s a win-win for the environment and Baines’ concrete masonry.
