Retaining Block Walls

When it comes to the construction of retaining block walls, various factors play a role in the final result, starting with the type of block you will be using to get the job done. Should you be looking for a supplier of quality retaining wall blocks, MVA Bricks offers a selection of blocks with proven integrity when used in conjunction with correct construction methods. Using our retaining wall blocks will result in a cost-effective construction method and they enhance their surroundings with an aesthetically pleasing setup to keep land mass at bay, avoiding landslides and ground movement.

A civil engineer’s knowledge is paramount in the design and construction of a large retaining wall, reducing the risks of accidents during and after construction. Should the height of the planned retaining wall exceed 1,2 m, it is compulsory that a civil engineer designs the retaining wall before construction begins, thereby assuring that the final product poses no risk of collapsing and guaranteeing its integrity for years to come. Now that we have covered some basic requirements of the construction of retaining walls, let’s shift our focus to MVA Bricks’ selection to find the ideal retaining wall block for your next construction project.
