Panel and Post Retaining Walls.
One system we use comprises of precast steel reinforced concrete posts and panels. When using this system we are able to achieve retaining from 300mm to a height of 1.5 meters.
The retaining walls are 130mm thick and 1150mm long. If the retaining required is greater than 1200mm an additional backing panel is needed to distribute the load at the base of the panel.
Standard panels come at 300mm high, with half panels available at150mm in height. This allows the retaining wall to rise in 150mm increments, from 300mm high up to 1.5m in height.
We have detailed engineering specifications for this retaining wall system whether it be going in to sand or clay.
Some of the advantages of using this type of system are:
• When space is at a premium the retaining can be placed on the boundary line, making maximum use of land space that would otherwise be taken up by a thicker retaining system.
• Most common types of fencing can be installed right up to the retaining wall.
• Concrete is strong, durable and maintenance free.
• Comes in Cream and Grey
• Can be painted any colour you choose.
