In 2021 The Block is going somewhere it has never been before – UNDERGROUND – with the help of afs rediwall®

Construction at The Block building site always starts with a few surprises and this year was no different! In 2021, the renos began with the construction of basements, all using afs rediwall®.

With land prices at a premium in the Melbourne suburb of Hampton (where The Block 2021 is located), it makes sense to go down!

afs rediwall® is a strong and versatile permanent formwork system that’s also super-fast to assemble and install.

On The Block, speed is vital, which is one of the reasons that afs rediwall® was a great choice for the build team. Quick and easy to install, afs rediwall® is a perfect match for the time constraints of The Block’s schedule.

Lightweight to install, yet structurally strong to be load-bearing, the afs rediwall® walling system is suitable for both above and below ground applications. It’s a time-saving alternative to conventional masonry and blockwork. The precision-extruded components easily interconnect for rapid installation.

afs rediwall® is extremely versatile and able to be used in almost any application where a structural wall is required. With so many advantages, it makes perfect sense to consider afs rediwall® for your next project.

  • afs rediwall® requires almost no machinery-aided installation
  • The panels are lighter than blockwork or timber, so are easy to handle
  • Installation is simple and easy as components simply snap or slide together
  • There is a comprehensive range of profiles to maximise floor space and minimise concrete
  • The design of the internal webbing allows easier location of reinforcement bars and for better concrete flow during the core filling

  • Fewer trades are needed on site for installation, and waste is kept to a minimum, helping you to reduce workplace health and safety risks
  • All AFS products are of the highest quality and are locally made, with fast delivery times
  • Dedicated after-sales services provide free onsite training and support
