Abstract

An Interlocking Stackable Modular Building Block plastic molded container is disclosed that is ideally suited for making barrier walls, slabs and emergency living quarters. The referred embodiment of the Block is a hollow container with extrusion tongue on the one end and insertion groove on the other end. The Blocks can be placed adjacent to each other in interlocking position by inserting the tongue of the first Block in to the groove of the adjacent Block. Blocks have narrow ledge on the top and wider extension on the bottom. The wider bottom fits snugly on the top narrow ledge when Blocks are placed on top of each other and are held tight with screws. Walls and slabs can be made out of Blocks when they are placed in adjacent interlocked position and stacked top and bottom position. Such walls and slabs are ideally suited for providing winterized insulated housing to people in remote areas and areas that are hit with natural calamities such as earthquakes and floods. The walls are also suitable for erecting barriers alongside of freeways to reduce traffic noise. The Blocks are lightweight and inexpensive as they are manufactured with plastic molded material.

Description

  • Interlocking Stackable Building Blocks made out of plastic molded material is ideally suited for making winterized housing, barrier walls and slabs. The Building Blocks with extrusion tongue on one end and insertion groove on the other end can be placed end to end in interlocked position. Narrow upper end and a wider bottom end snap on top of each other when the Blocks are placed in stackable position. In stackable position the top and bottom half can be held firm tightly with screws. The Building Blocks are hollow containers (2 ft.×1 ft.×3 in), lightweight and are inexpensive to manufacture. Emergency walls and living quarters can be constructed quickly with minimum labor and very little material cost, providing instant housing in remote areas and areas that are affected by earthquake and, other natural calamities. Walls and living units made with the Blocks are essentially sound proof and well insulated providing emergency relief in extreme climatic conditions.
  • Turning to FIG. 1, the perspective of the Building Block front section showing extrusion tongue 1, elongated holes 2 (for placing hinges when doors are attached), side screw holes 3 and 4 on the bottom section and side screw holes 5 and 6 on the top section.
  • FIG. 2, the perspective of the Building Block back section showing insertion groove 12, side screw holes 8 and 9 on the narrow top section and side screw holes 10 and 11 on the wider bottom section. The wider bottom side 13 and the top narrow ledge 7 are designed to fit snugly when Blocks are placed in a stackable position.
  • FIG. 3, the perspective of the Blocks placed in interlocked position with the tongue of the first Block inserted into groove of the adjacent Block.
  • FIG. 4, perspective of the Blocks placed in stacked position with the wider bottom of the top Block placed on the narrow top of the bottom Block and held tight with screws through the screw holes.
  • FIG. 5, perspective of the Blocks placed in stacked and adjacent interlocked position to create a walls or extended slabs.
  • FIG. 6, perspective of the Blocks showing room or living quarter made by connecting walls and extended slabs.
  • Thus, the present invention provides quick and inexpensive solution of making winterized housing for people affected by natural calamities such as earthquake and floods. The Building Blocks are hollow lightweight containers making them specially suited for constructing housing in earthquake prone areas that require lightweight material to minimize the damage caused by collapsed buildings. The Building Blocks are inexpensive and can easily be manufactured with plastic molding machines, reducing the cost of labor and transportation. The Building Blocks are also well suited for constructing barrier walls such as the one erected alongside of the freeways for suppressing freeway noise coming to residential areas. The walls can be erected quickly as no cement or glue is required during construction.
  • This invention is illustrated more or less diagrammatically in the accompanying drawing, wherein:
  • FIG. 1 is a perspective of the Building Block showing extrusion tongue in the front with a view of top narrow ledge showing screw holes on the side.
  • FIG. 2 is a perspective of the Building Block showing insertion groove on the back with a view of screw holes on the side.
  • FIG. 3 is a perspective of Blocks with tongue and groove of adjacent Blocks placed in interlocked position with each other.
  • FIG. 4 is a perspective of Blocks stacked on top of each other with the wider bottom of the top Block fitting snugly on the narrow ledge of the bottom Block and screwed to hold them tight.
  • FIG. 5 is a perspective of interlocked Blocks stacked on top of each other creating a wall or a slab.
  • FIG. 6 is a perspective of the use of Building Block slabs in making a living quarter.

Claims (1)

1. A modular Building Block providing capability of making walls, slabs and living quarters by placing them in interlocked position end to end and stacked position top and bottom. The Building Blocks are containers measuring 2 ft.×1 ft.×3 in., lightweight and made out of plastic molding material that require no cement or glue to hold them together. The front of the Block has an extrusion tongue and back of the Block has a grooved insertion. Several of them can be held in interlocked position by inserting the tongue of the one Block in to the groove the adjacent Block. Blocks are provided with narrow ledge on the topside and wide extension on the bottom side, so they can be placed snugly on top of each other for making walls and slabs. Blocks can be held tight with screws when they are placed on top of each other.
