A retaining wall is a structure designed and constructed to resist lateral soil pressure when the desired change in ground elevation exceeds the soil’s angle of repose. Two basic design concepts - CANTILEVER and GRAVITY - are used for the construction of Echo prestressed hollow-core retaining walls. Echo security walls are not comparable with other walling products. In a class of their own, they protect high-value properties of strategic significance such as airports, military bases, industrial and commercial parks, mines and prisons - in fact any operation that requires over-the-top security...

GreenLite Insulated Concrete
GreenLite Insulated Concrete GreenLite Insulated Concrete is the culmination of more than 18 years of  manufacturing and installing ABT’s (alternative building technology) in South Africa.We felt that there had to be a more environmentally friendly way of implementing our insulated building systems. The answer was to use recycled polystyrene which formed the basis of our energy efficient walling systems.We recycle post consumer polystyrene back into eps beads through our recycling plants. This material is then used as aggregate mixed with cement and additives to form insulated, soundproof, fireproof, water-resistant lightweight concrete blocks and screeds.These blocks are proving invaluable to the construction industry where clients and contractors are able to reduce their structural concrete and steel requirements due to the lightweight nature of the walls. The highly insulated walls also offer the added benefit of further energy savings to the client over the lifespan of the building.With climate change looming and the rising cost of energy we are now forced to look at sustainable building options. GreenLite Concrete blocks and screeds fulfill these requirements. We have successfully integrated conventional building techniques with alternative building technology.
