Common Questions

Quick answers to some of your most frequently asked questions are shown below:

Rapid Deployment Blocks
Q: How quickly can your RDBs be with me?
We can usually deliver anywhere in England within 24 hours, day or night
Q: How big are your RDBs?
RDBs measure 2.5m in length x 0.5m height x 0.75m deep, and weigh 2.25 tonnes
Q: How many can I have delivered at once?
Our largest truck can haul 27 tonnes, equivalent to 12 RDBs
Q: Will you place the concrete blocks where I need them, even off road?
Yes, we will place the blocks to suit your requirements, and our vehicles and equipment mean we can service virtually any on or off-road terrain
Q: What about 'authorised' access once the blocks are delivered?
We can install a lockable, slidable gate in-between two of the RDBs for when access is required
Q: How are the blocks collected?
In all cases Block Aid will collect and remove all barriers at the end of the hire period
Q: How many RDBs will I need?
For access control, simply measure the width of the area to be blocked and divide it by 2.5m (7 feet 4 inches) to get the closest idea. For example, a 10 metre (33 feet) entrance would need 4 barriers
