XL Hollow-Core Retaining Blocks
Redi-Rock XL is a new, hollow-core retaining block that extends the reach of the most comprehensive retaining wall system on the market, making even taller gravity walls in tight spaces a short order.
Optimize Your Retaining Wall Design with Redi-Rock XL
At 36-inches (914-millimeters) tall and available in 52, 72, and 96-inch (1,320, 1,820, and 2,440 millimeter) widths, optimizing your retaining wall design just got easier with Redi-Rock XL Hollow-Core Blocks. With the three different sizes, you'll be able to take your walls to new heights while saving concrete at the same time!
Part of the Proven System
Even though it might look a little different with its hollow-core, Redi-Rock XL blocks are compatible with all the other components of the Redi-Rock system. Start your design with XL and switch over to standard, solid blocks when design parameters allow!
Build Taller Gravity Walls
No room for reinforcement or setbacks? No problem! Available in three widths up to 96 inches (2,440 millimeters), Redi-Rock XL makes it possible to build taller gravity walls in tight spaces.
Double the Face Coverage
At 36-inches (914 millimeters) tall -- twice the height of regular Redi-Rock blocks -- that means double the face coverage for each pick during installation. No big deal. Wait...that's a pretty big deal!
Gravity Wall Reaches 25.5 Feet (7.8 Meters) with XL Blocks
When the excavation for a Redi-Rock gravity wall to make room for a new hangar at John C. Tune Airport in Nashville, Tennessee, unearthed geotechnical issues, it was time to go back to the drawing board to design a taller wall. View the case study to learn how retaining wall designer Clint Hines, P.E. optimized the wall with over 800 XL blocks, achieving a max height of 25.5 feet (7.8 meters).
Like the rest of the system, Redi-Rock XL comes with the engineering resources to back it up!
From block infill calculations to typical drainage details, check out the XL construction details. They will get you started on the right path to optimize your design and install of XL.
Software to Design & Analyze
Redi-Rock Wall+ Software includes Redi-Rock XL, so you can model and test the most intricate geotechnical troubles you might encounter and analyze your cross sections with XL.
"XL units really help us get above the 15-foot height with maintaining the standard Redi-Rock 5-degree batter and helps us build taller structures in a narrower footprint."
