Water Applications


Redi-Rock is a proven, precast modular block retaining wall system, created by engineers, for engineers. The Redi-Rock retaining wall system uses massive one ton blocks made of 4,000 PSI (27.6MPa) concrete. These walls are known to perform against freeze thaw cycles, marine environments, and record-setting storms. From flood walls to seawalls, Redi-Rock can help.
