Why You’ll Choose Novum Wall

Novum Wall is the result of more than 20 years of earth retention research, solution development and testing, and real-world application


Build Your Wall. In No Time at All

A machine-set PMB wall solution, Novum Wall’s practical dimensions and manageable weight make installation fast and fluid, simple and straightforward.

Adept at Adapting

Novum Wall features Redi-Rock’s proprietary knob and groove technology for shorter gravity walls. Engineering resources for mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls using Novum Wall’s friction and Positive Connection (PC) installation capabilities are planned for mid 2024.


Retention and Protection

Ideal for gravity walls up to 6 ft (1.8 m) tall, Novum Wall’s wet cast composition means it’s just as effective safeguarding shorelines on an inland lake as it is maximizing space in a residential backyard. With Novum Wall, you’ll:

  • Overcome limited access and installation footprints like those found in waterfront residential projects
  • Add value to commercial projects by installing great looking smaller walls that complement larger Redi-Rock walls
  • Break into the transportation market by providing facing blocks perfectly suited for GRS-IBS bridge applications

Textures that Pop

Ugly walls have no place in Novum Wall’s neighborhood. Select from multiple faces with textures so detailed you’ll swear they were cut from the quarry.

Texture and color options vary by region; contact your local manufacturer for local availability.
