Reinforced Concrete Blocks
Reinforced Concrete Block Retaining Walls are a convenient way of building vertical retaining walls. These walls consist of an engineer designed reinforced concrete footing to anchor the wall against overturning and a wall of concrete blocks filled with a concrete grout mix. The block wall is reinforced with steel bars both vertically and horizontally.
Island Block & Paving produce four different width retaining wall blocks - 140mm, 190mm, 240mm and 290mm. Designers can select the block type dependant on the specific retaining wall height and site soil conditions encountered.
The retaining wall blocks are available in various colours or can be supplied in a natural grey colour to be left as is or ready for rendering or painting.
Island Block and Paving are a "one stop shop" as we also distribute the Unitex range of renders, mouldings and lightweight cladding to finish off most building block projects.
