New block system for high retaining walls

ReMaCon Products of Gauteng has negotiated the exclusive rights for local manufacture of concrete retaining blocks that are designed for the construction of retaining walls to over 20m in height. Silvio Ferraris, managing member of ReMaCon Products, says, “This is a coup for us because the retaining wall system, which is new to South Africa but is well proven abroad, opens the way for us to provide solutions for large civil projects more competitively and advantageously than the incremental panel systems that are typically used for these purposes at present.”

Roadside retaining walls

Retaining walls often form part of the works required in the construction of highway interchanges and versatile Terraforce concrete retaining blocks are proving popular for such applications. In Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, Terraforce blocks supplied by Terraforce licensee, Consent LLC, were used in two interchange projects recently completed: the Mirdif interchange and the Jebel Ali interchange. As Holger Rust, founder of Terraforce in Cape Town, points out, traffic interchanges are structures that use grade separation with ramps to facilitate rapid flow of traffic. They often have to be fitted into a tight space and creative engineering is required to design cost-effective retaining structures that can be built fast and provide a safe and long-lasting solution.
