8X8X18R Bond Beam Concrete Block

Bond beam blocks are essential components in masonry construction, designed to provide enhanced structural integrity and horizontal reinforcement.

Featuring a U-shaped groove along the top, these blocks are filled with reinforcing steel (rebar) and concrete, forming a continuous beam that ties multiple courses of blocks together.

Key Features:

  • Enhanced Strength: Provides horizontal reinforcement within masonry walls.
  • Versatile Application: Ideal for use at the top of walls, above openings, and at regular intervals to improve structural stability.
  • Design: U-shaped groove accommodates rebar and concrete fill, creating a solid bond beam.
  • Compliance: Meets industry standards for structural reinforcement in seismic and high-load areas.


  • Seismic Zones: Essential for structures in earthquake-prone areas to resist horizontal forces.
  • Retaining Walls: Adds strength and stability to retaining walls, preventing lateral movement.
  • Multi-Story Buildings: Used at floor levels to tie the structure together, distributing loads evenly.
