Maccaferri MacWall® is a segmental blockwork retaining wall system combining the aesthetics of masonry walls with the engineered reassurance of reinforced earth. Segmental block retaining walls (“SRW”s) are increasing in popularity due to their ease of construction, cost-effectiveness and versatility.
The two components of the MacWall® system are:
– Split face concrete modular block in a range of colours to suit adjacent structures and environments
– Reinforcement Paragrid® geogrids sandwiched between the courses of block
The Paragrid® geogrids are placed horizontally within the structural backfill to the wall, providing tensile strength and reinforcing the soil mass. The grids also tie the fascia blocks to the reinforced soil.
We offer a range of block types to suit most requirements with slope face angles from 2o to 11o. Our Vertica block type is available with a BBA Certified mix if required by the project. Our Landmark block has a positive connection between the geogrid and the block; it has BBA HAPAS Certification.
MacWall® easily incorporates curves, corners and steps and being dry-built (without mortar), it is simple and rapid to construct in all climates.
