What are Retaining Walls?
Landscape retaining walls are large blocks that are used to support upright slopes of soil. These blocks act as the perfect support especially when there is a need to keep erosion check or leveling a patio area.
Retaining walls are crafted in a way that helps to provide architectural support against the lateral pressure of the earth. There are several types of concrete retaining walls, including:
- Sheet piled
AFTEC is one of the leading manufactures for a diverse range of concrete retaining walls with different surface textures.
Concrete Retaining Wall Blocks
AFTEC is a reliable source for concrete retaining wall manufacturing. We specialize in constructing precast retaining walls with versatile architectural patterns on its surface.
The concrete retaining wall blocks that are manufactured by AFTEC are large concrete blocks that are customized to support small to medium soil elevations ranging up to 12ft. We keep innovating in terms of trends, design, and other requirements, catering to the needs of our clients in Connecticut.
Types of Retaining Walls
AFTEC is your most reliable option when you need precast retaining walls with different designs visible on its surface. We manufacture industrial retaining walls, supporting elevation height up to 12ft. Our production is reliable since we incorporate precise engineering standards that give flawless production. We also incorporate precast fence walls on top as requested.
These types of retaining walls are manufactured using large boulders or blocks of precast concrete. The walls are constructed in a way to withstand lateral pressure from both sides. In addition, these walls are also built higher and harder that ensures maximum support and reinforcement that is done using rigid-footing techniques.
By using brick masonry concrete, CMU block walls or masonry retaining walls are constructed. These blocks use the standard 8” x 4” x 2.25” sized kiln-fired bricks and mortar. The key element is to strengthen them using steel, which helps to prolong the life of the retaining walls.
As evident by the name, the sheet piled retaining walls is produced using steel, vinyl, fiberglass, plastic or wooden planks piled up on each other. The planks are hammered two thirds in the ground to provide lateral support. They are particularly ideal for soft soils and compact areas.
Using reinforced steel with precast concrete and masonry forms cantilevered concrete. The cantilevered concrete wall blocks are used as a strong structural foothold that can sustain pressure. In addition, the composition of the wall enables it to transform horizontal pressure to a perpendicular vertical one.
