6 years on, and the design elements that saw it beat out over 150 Australian and international entries which qualified for Good Design® Selection have been enjoyed by tens of thousands of builders since.

The TuffBlock is made of high strength closed loop recycled polyolefin material with an ultra high UV rating. Designed with a ventilated underside to prevent moisture buildup and deter termites. TuffBlock’s are the only block products that are able to be secured to the post/bearer for extra stability.

 We look forward to adding more to the range, and pushing for more Good Design Awards.
