Welcome to Hydraform the home of brick and block making machines

Hydraform is a proudly South African company with head office in Johannesburg and 1400m² manufacturing premises in the coastal town of Durban for ease of export. In support of our local manufacturing industry and to preserve quality and high standards of workmanship, all equipment is manufactured and tested in South Africa only.

Hydraform has dedicated more than 25 years to developing our building technology (ABT). Through continuous research and development with leading institutions, Hydraform developed a stabilized soil-cement block (SSB) which is dry stacked and interlocks on 4 sides, eliminating the use of mortar in 70% of the building structure with no need for concrete or steel columns.

The Hydraform interlocking building block remains the most popular choice in ABT technology for various construction purposes due to the speed, efficiency, cost saving and localized production.

Due to the great demand for Hydraform’s high quality interlocking Blockmaking machines (Original Equipment Manufacturer, OEM), there was a demand for conventional brick making machines to compliment the product range.Please make the bold a link to the conventional product range page Hydraform has a full range of conventional cement product machines producing a variety of paving bricks, hollow blocks, stock bricks and more.

Unfortunately we cannot repair or fix machines purchased by clients who have been conned and purchased copy machines from China and elsewhere.
