Profile block builder

Block builder

The block builder is currently available for use with the external builder’s profile. It attaches onto the profile, allowing the building of internal blocks alongside the building of external brickwork. This is used in house, extension and garage building.

Internal and external line run off block builder and profile The external profile works the same as before with the string line for the outer wall being run from it. It sits on the external profile and a string line is run off the block builder for the inner wall.
Profile and block builder Block builders are made from stainless steel making them corrosion resistant for use outdoors, and fairly lightweight so as not to obstruct or affect the profile.
