Build Your Wall
Economical and easy to install, Shea Concrete retaining walls feature a unique locking system that permits walls as high as 12' without a geo-grid. Each block is made from wet-cast, air-entrained concrete with a minimum PSI of 3,000 for incredible strength and durability that exceeds industry standards. With a standard face size of 48" x 16", place just one block and you have installed 5.33 sq. ft. of retaining wall. And since no mortar is needed, the blocks stack up quickly.
ReCon Wall Installation Overview
Proper installation procedures for a ReCon retaining wall follow closely those used for most modular, mortarless segmental retaining walls. However, the difference is that ReCon retaining wall blocks are not placed by hand, but with equipment typically owned and used by most experienced retaining wall installers or landscapers.
There are times when unique solutions are necessary on a particular project site. Special procedures such as soil-nailing or veneering in front of H-pile can solve difficult site challenges. ReCon specializes in helping its customers find unique solutions that save time, money and valuable real estate.
The following illustrations show a few of the important steps involved in a typical retaining wall installation. Actual project construction procedures can be found within the Project Specifications and the Final Engineered Plans and Drawings, which are prepared for specific projects.
