The Alfabloc® is the only ‘A’ shape, interconnecting freestanding precast concrete wall system on the market. Its patented jointed mechanism aids in the spread of the load horizontally against the units. It is designed to be freestanding for the majority of uses, but can also be ground fixed for higher loading applications.

The Alfabloc® is the ideal solution when you need to avoid mixing materials. Sealant used between the blocks can prevent migration of fine materials to reduce the risk of cross-contamination.

Alfabloc

Requiring only a structurally solid base to sit on, the precast concrete wall units can be used in a variety of applications. Units come in seven sizes from 1.2m to 6.0m and can weigh up to 5.2 tonnes.

The Alfabloc® has been tried and tested over many years of constant use and can withstand significant impact by mechanical plant as well as withstanding extreme weather conditions.

Alfablocs® are used in many sectors including Agriculture, Waste & Recycling, Ports & Shipping etc.

Alfabloc® has many advantages as a retaining wall solution:

  • The biggest and most powerful advantage is the ability to connect the blocks and create one solid wall which is why it out performs the competition
  • Easily transported
  • Can be lifted without chains or shackles
  • Fast & easy one-man installation
  • Easily configured meaning you can change the layout in minutes
  • No protruding toe (means the loading shovel won’t catch)
  • Easy to clean
  • Load one or both sides
  • No casting holes to be filled.
  • Many different heights available.

Corner Sections

These allow the concrete retaining wall system to be continuous and ‘gap’ free. The corner section is the perfect solution if you are trying to achieve a stand alone storage area where the corner units are placed at right angles. The steel corner section can be applied to provide a gap free wall.

End Covers

These seal the concrete retaining wall units and are available in a variety of designs. To finish off the end of the concrete retaining wall system a steel end cover can be attached to prevent grain, waste or any other stored product being lost in the Alfabloc® void.

Ground fixings

The optional ground fixing kit is available to provide an even more secure surface attachment. If you are looking to create a more permanent structure, either immediately or at a later point in time, the unique Alfabloc® design allows for optional ground fixing.

Extension tops

We can make both concrete and steel extension tops which can be used to increase the height of the Alfabloc® by 600mm and 1,000mm (concrete only), meaning you can achieve a greater storage space if our standard heights are not quite enough. We can  offer advice as to the loading capabilities of the extended unit.

Connecting straps

The Alfabloc® is designed to allow for a recessed connecting strap to be attached vertically in order to provide a secure connection between the units. The connecting strap which assists in the spread of load horizontally provides a sealed joint and additional strength.

Lifting attachment

The unique lifting attachment ensures ease of construction, making an Alfabloc® wall a ‘one-man’ operation. Designed to perfectly fit the concrete wall unit, the lifting attachment is the easiest and safest method of installing the Alfabloc®.

Lifting Attachment

‘Once the concrete was down, the Alfabloc® system gave us a very quick and simple set of storage bays which we can easily vary in size according to seasonal requirements and with the addition of further mini Alfabloc® create more storage for specific materials. Professional from the initial phone call, delivery and installation was highly efficient and achieved in record time, with no disruption to the day-to-day operations of the site and its occupants, so much so that within 36 hours we went from a bare concrete pad to a fully functioning composting facility – why would I go anywhere else"

Angus Lindsay - Group Head of Assets and Fleet, The Landscape Group

"Thank you for the excellent way your sales team has co-ordinated with me, the buyer and proprietor of Jeff Townsend, on our recent orders. Your quotes on your L blocks and A blocks, which we regularly use on various contracts on recycling sites, are very competitive.
