An enormous part of Techo-Bloc’s success stems from our product
innovation. We understand that manufacturing the best stone isn’t
enough. To ensure continuous growth, our research and development
group is constantly envisioning and creating new stones and new
applications, all while pushing the industry forward along the way.
In a little more than ten years, Techo-Bloc has developed and patented
more than a dozen products, technologies and machinery, including:
Patented: Creta, the world’s first tumbled interlocking
retaining wall system.
Patented: Mini-Creta, the world’s first all-in-one
rustic retaining wall. The system includes corner units, boasts
convex and concave curves, and can be built vertical or inclined.
And it is all contained in one pallet.
Patented: Allegro, the first paving stone with undulating
edges to replicate ancient cobblestone.
Belgik curbstone, the first manufactured replica of Belgian
Elena, the first modular (various sizes) paving stone to be offered
in one pallet.
Neptune, a smooth-faced cap block with the Granitex finish used
primarily for pool coping, treads, retaining wall caps, and even
a decorative border as paving stones.
Patented: Tumble Master, the radical new manufacturing method that
gives our stones their aged appearance.
Patented: Quarry Stone, the world’s first retaining wall stone
with a hand-chiseled and handcrafted appearance.
We built the most technologically advanced paving stone and retaining
wall manufacturing plant in the industry in Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania.
Santorini, the molded, interlocking paving stone with a rugged,
high-relief surface that emulates the natural look of slate.
This year, Techo-Bloc is proud to unveil four brand-new
products. We are introducing two new slabs:
Ming is available in three different colors and a multitude of shapes,
which creates the look of stepping-stones from an Oriental Garden.
Inca is an impressive patio and walkway slab, and comes in three
different sizes and two natural colors.
This summer, we will be also introducing Mini-Creta Plus 3”-6”,
a double-sided wall stone with an aged appearance that allows you
to combine a variety of six different shapes and sizes. Mini-Creta
Plus is perfect for building vertical, freestanding walls. This
versatile retaining wall stone can be built with both inward and
Finally, in our largest introduction ever, we present Monumental
Blok, a breakthrough in retaining wall technology. Monumental Blok
offers a sculpted, handcrafted appearance while making a bold, strong
statement in any landscape. Thanks to Techo-Bloc’s special
anchoring system, the stones are simply set into place with a backhoe
or small dozer. Monumental Blok allows you to build walls up to
twelve feet high without the use of geogrid. Roughly the same size
as a dozen Mini-Creta, Monumental Blok provides you with significant
savings on installation costs.
Clearly, Techo-Bloc continues to provide homeowners with a whole
new world of options for your outdoor living spaces. Whatever the
landscape design and style, there will always be a Techo-Bloc product
