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.
Channel Walls Protect Neighborhood from Flooding
When a sharp turn in a stream began eroding homeowners' yards in storm events, the city of Florence, Kentucky, needed a solution, and fast. "The ability to construct the wall without geogrid reinforcement was critically important to this project," explained Justin M. Verst, P.E. with Viox & Viox. "The construction space was tight."

Water Retaining Wall Case Studies
Foryd Harbour Enhancement Project, Rhyl, North Wales
This 24.3 foot (7.4 meter) tall reinforced wall was installed to help expand a jetty and support the base of a pedestrian bridge. Two months after construction was complete, massive storms battered the UK, but the Redi-Rock wall withstood the storm and performed exactly as engineered.
Fisher Residence, Shubenacadie Grand Lake, Nova Scotia
Years of storm damage completely destroyed the natural-stone retaining wall between this home and the large inland lake, resulting in waves breaking at the home's doorstep. Redi-Rock Ledgestone blocks gave the owners the look they wanted while also protecting their home.
Morehead State Storm Channel, Morehead, Kentucky
An unsightly and heavily eroded storm channel at Morehead State University received a much-needed upgrade, transforming this part of campus. Redi-Rock gravity walls were a great fit for this application because of the design, engineered strength, efficiency, and superior aesthetics.
Centre Point Retention Pond, West Chester, Ohio
After the freeze-thaw cycle destroyed the rip-rap reinforcement of this stormwater retention pond, West Chester Township needed a better solution to aid with erosion control. Redi-Rock was chosen for aesthetics and its durability in freeze-thaw cycles.
Beach Bridge, North Haven, Maine
A deteriorating marine bridge in Maine required a simpler soluition than the typical pile driven foundation. Learn how designers used a unique bridge solution that combined Redi-Rock and GRS-IBS technology to create a durable solution for this bridge.
