Redi-Rock large block retaining walls are built using massive, 1-ton blocks to hold back the earth. Each 1-ton block installed equals nearly 6 sq. ft. of face--meaning that large block walls can be installed in a fraction of the time as compared to a small block walll. The massive size of each block also allows tall gravity walls to be built without geogrid in many applications, and even taller reinforced walls.
Redi-Rock's engineering department has decades of combined experience in the retaining wall industry. The construction details, design charts, and testing data supporting the Redi-Rock large block retaining wall system are ready for you to dig into and start designing your next retaining wall.
The Redi-Rock big block retaining wall system provides the incomparable durability of “wet cast”, air-entrained concrete. Wet-cast concrete has superior durability in freeze thaw cycles, making it a perfect choice for critical DOT projects, developments, storm channels, and more.
Redi-Rock blocks are trapezoidal in shape. This fact enables the blocks to accomplish convex and concave radii.
The patented fork slot technology was designed so contractors can use heavy machinery to pick multiple blocks at a time
Efficiently staging product on jobsites reduces handling time and is safer than hooking blocks with a chain.
Save time positioning blocks and ensure a proper fit with the interlocking knob and groove technology.
A solid hook made from A36 steel is cast directly into the Redi-Rock blocks. The hook is used to safely lift blocks into place
Redi-Rock products lead the industry in texture depths at a whopping 5.5in of texture. Redi-Rock comes in three textures: Limestone, Cobblestone, and the revolutionary Ledgestone. Also, multiple colors can be achieved to meet your need.
Redi-Rock blocks utilize a knob and groove technology. This simple concept means that the entire structure is interlocked. Interface shear testing data is available in the Technical section of this website.
Our 41 Inch Middle Block weighs in at 2351 pounds. This 41 in. Block weighs as much as a Budweiser Clydesdale!
Redi-Rock uses the weight of the blocks to hold back the earth. This allows Redi-Rock to build taller walls than smaller block units before needing to add geogrid or tiebacks
