Inexpensive Retaining Wall Ideas – Who has to secure slopes before slipping, it has to do with great forces. If then a high retaining wall is needed, fast solutions are rare. For a brick wall needs time and a lot of labor. But there is a stable alternative: a solution of multiblock stones. These patented safety system stones are made of concrete and are extremely stable thanks to their unique steel tube connectors. The Dell site Solid Baumaschinen GmbH from Bergheim provides the stones exclusively and also offers a detailed planning with static calculation in the run-up to the project. “Anyone who thinks of storage boxes only on storage boxes has been wrong,” says Claudia Wilbertz, architect and project manager at Dellschau Solid. “We know that our multiblock stones can do much more.
Recently, a customer wanted to support an inclined and unsecured slope through the precaution of a heavyweight wall of 3 meters height. The material used there should serve as a filling material between the wall and the slope. The red layer, a sand-silt mixture with a bulk density of 16 to 17 KN / cbm, was sufficiently present on site. A foundation was not necessary for the wall of multiblock stones. Only a sliding support made of a 17 cm thick asphalt layer was necessary to keep the wall securely in place.
Because you are always on the safe side at Dellschau, you have a static calculation generated for this project. This gave a maximum backfill height of the wall of 2.75 m with full stability. The strengthening effect of the pipe connectors in the bricks is the decisive factor. The fact that the customer can still increase the wall in case of need is another advantage. “With a concrete wall or a brick wall, a much greater effort would have been necessary,” says Dipl. Ing. Claudia Wilbertz. “The project alone would have delayed the foundation. Now the simple antislip is asphalt. And later jacking up is a children’s game with this technique, without any joints. “The expansion of this wall into bulk material boxes is by no means a problem. On the 17 cm asphalt layer simply special stones with a height of 42 cm would be placed. For the toothing of the box parts, individual stones can be removed and thus a stable connection can be established. If necessary, however, the wall could also be removed easily and rebuilt elsewhere.
Multibloc safety system stones are concrete system stones with a grid size of 60 x 60 x 180 cm, from which bulk material or storage boxes, as well as hall walls and retaining walls, can be built. In contrast to other systems, the stones are stabilized by steel tube connectors. This makes it possible to create large wall heights with a flexible wall design since the pipe connectors create a non-positive connection and thus secure the walls before falling over, or leave the stone where it belongs. Another special feature: a multiblock wall does not need a foundation, only a sufficiently load-bearing foundation. In principle, the first formula is that wherever a thirty-tonner can roll, Also stones can stand and that applies also for the multi-block too. The combination with the Richel film hall is another variation.
