Retaining Wall – Shuttabloc™
Precast retaining wall with internal reinforcing system
Poundfields unique Shuttabloc™ concrete retaining wall system has been designed to provide a faster, more economical alternative to casting in-situ.
Whilst traditional precast concrete units are suitable for retaining bulk materials in many circumstances, some situations require a higher specification to withstand impacts from loading plant or to retain higher loads. It is for these situations that the Shuttabloc™ is ideal. No onsite formwork, faster installation and a factory controlled finish results in a product that is flexible, cost effective and designed to exactly the same properties as an in-situ wall.
We offer a tailored solution to your requirements and work with you to provide a design that you are happy with. The Shuttabloc™ retaining wall can be manufactured in a variety of heights and lengths to suit your needs. The hollow cores of the precast units are pumped full of concrete once in place resulting in a solid push wall that is tied in together and capable of withstanding significant impacts and loads.
The Shuttabloc™ system has been used for a wide variety of applications including silage clamps, security walls, bulk storage and push walls. Offering a complete package from the moment we receive your enquiry; our friendly sales and design team can assist you with your proposal and talk through the various options, whilst our experienced installation technicians can manage and run the deliveries, off-loading, fixing, pumping and finishing of the units.
