SABS-Approved Concrete Retaining Walls

SABS-Approved Concrete Retaining-Wall Blocks Retaining walls are constructed with high-density concrete blocks that are specifically designed to retain soil. These structures must be planned and designed by a civil engineer to ensure that they meet building regulations.

Concrete Pavers

Quality Concrete Paver Bricks Concrete pavers are bricks commonly used for creating a suitable surface for parking lots, walkways, and driveways. The resulting surface is customisable with patterns and layouts when using pavers of multiple colours.

Quality Concrete Retaining-Wall Blocks for Sale Concrete retaining-wall blocks, or CRBs for short, are specifically designed to build walls that retain soil. They can also be used for retention ponds on construction sites or in aquaculture farming.

SABS Approved Retaining Wall Blocks

View Our Range of SABS-Approved Retaining-Wall Blocks Retaining walls are constructed using concrete retaining-wall blocks (CRBs) that are cast in a specific density and SABS-approved to deliver optimal performance.

Retaining Wall Structure

Building A Sound Retaining-Wall Structure The structure of a retaining wall will depend on the lay of the land and the design presented by the civil engineer. Such a construction is designed to keep a natural slope at bay, allowing for the construction of buildings and roads next to it.

Correct Installation of CRBs

How to Correctly Approach CRB Installations Concrete retaining block (CRB) walls are commonly used to retain soil on sloped areas. The construction of these walls keeps natural slopes at bay, avoiding landslides from crushing buildings, roads, or other infrastructure adjacent to such a wall.

Concrete Retaining Wall Safety

Ensuring the Safety of Your Retaining Wall Construction of a concrete retaining wall (CRB) requires that certain regulations be met, even before the structure is built. Since its basic function is to keep soil at bay and resist its movement and that of other materials, safety is a very important part of such a project.

Retaining Wall Regulations

Retaining Walls Defined When it comes to the construction of and regulations governing retaining walls, there are certain aspects that determine whether the structure follows the industrial-standard code, as stated by part K of SANS 10400.
