KPC have been offering standard, corner and even custom concrete padstones for some years now. This means we have built up the experience and know-how to help you to support any given project KPC padstones are stronger than a conventional masonry block, in fact, at KPC we manufacture our Padstones with a 40N/Sq mm concrete mix.
The weight carried by lintels joists and RSJs is transferred to the blockwork beneath and this can apply a crushing, potentially damaging force to the blocks at the point of the load transfer. Concrete Padstones from KPC serve to distribute this weight safely and more efficiently through the blockwork, reducing the potential for cracks and structural failure. We supply a broad range of concrete padstones (as listed below) to suit a variety of applications. The standard sizes as listed are available ex-stock, but of course, we are more than happy to discuss custom requirements. Our technical team will be happy to provide any advice and help with concrete padstone design and specification for your requirements.
