Kentledge Blocks

Maltaward are a well known supplier of a range of Kentledge blocks, hoarding blocks and anchor blocks.

Available as a 500 kg block and a 1000kg block, our Kentledge blocks are sturdy and capable of providing much needed stabilisation. The ballast blocks can be used on a standalone basis or can be mechanically integrated into construction to provide the right level of anchorage for any temporary structure.

Precast concrete Kentledge blocks are deployed to act as ballast weights or counterweights to provide stabilisation for a variety of temporary structures and works such as;

Site hoarding and fencing

Securing one side of the fence or hoarding with hoarding blocks provides immense stability and rigidity, even where structures face severe wind loads. The effectiveness of the blocks means support can be applied to one side only, leaving the face completely clear, unobstructed and visually pleasing.


Kentledge blocks provide 100% secure anchorage for scaffolding, including sheeted structures. The blocks add mass to the structure as well as rigidity because the anchor blocks can be mechanically integrated into the framework.

Rigging and stagework

Kentledge blocks make ideal counterweights on cantilevered structures, the heavy weights providing robust support on minimal footprints. Useful for rigging staging, lighting gantries or other tubular structures, the blocks can be mechanically coupled to the structures for extra rigidity and safety. Where structures have sheet cladding, such as stage or start/finish gantries, the blocks can be integrated into the core structure without visually affecting the exterior.

Marquees and events

Providing anchorage for marquees, anchor blocks can be strapped to the main support guys, thus eliminating pegging, which may be particularly useful for hard surface marquee erections.

Cranes and towers

In addition to anchorage and stabilisation for temporary structures, our Kentledge weight blocks are often used to provide stabilisation for large cranes.

Maltaward’s concrete Kentledge blocks also have a wide range of other uses such as concrete test weights and ballast weights.
