The Legio-Footblock was specially designed to increase the storage capacity of storage bays. Using the wide foot element also increases the load carrying capacity of the wall. In general, constructions that use footblocks can be built higher than constructions that do not.
In the case of the asphalt plant, using footblocks resulted in added value because of the heavy loads imposed by the materials. Thanks to the widened bottom of the footblocks, 160 centimetres as opposed to 80 centimetres in a standard Legioblock, loads can be optimally distributed. The widened bottom of the footblocks results in sturdy and safe walls.
