Solid concrete blocks size, weight, and price./ What are dimensions & weight of cement blocks?

  • Solid concrete block sizes.

The actual (or basic) size of the block is 0.375 inches ( 3/8") or 10 mm lesser than the nominal (or modular) size of the block.

Given below are the different nominal sizes of the solid concrete blocks in the Indian market.

Similarly, you can calculate the actual sizes of the other blocks.

  • Weight in kg. & pounds of the solid concrete blocks.


The density of the solid concrete blocks varies from 2100 kg/cu.m  to 2400 kg/cu.m depending upon the raw material & machinery used in the manufacturing process. For the calculation of the weight of the solid concrete block, I have considered the density of  2350 kg/cu.m. (preferred) 

Given below are the weight of the concrete blocks of various sizes.
