Reinforced Retaining Walls
Like other mechanically stabilized earth retention systems, Recon’s Reinforced Retaining Wall System utilizes geo-grid to support and reinforce the soil. Other features include efficient construction and a variety of face textures and top-of-wall finishes to choose from.
What is a Reinforced Retaining Wall?
A Reinforced Retaining Wall is a composite structure incorporating layers of geo-grid to reinforce backfill material creating a solid, reinforced mass. Capable of supporting a variety of load conditions and reaching heights in excess of 40 feet (12m), Recon’s Reinforced Wall System is a great choice when you need to maximize usable space at the top of the wall.
Retaining Wall Block and Geogrid
Recon’s 16” (40.6cm) or 24” (61cm) deep block combined with geogrid creates a solid, reinforced mass to ensure proper wall performance and design for mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) applications.
In addition to wall heights, lengths, and layout, site-plans (grading plans) offer additional information about adjacent structures, surcharges, site access, property lines, utility locations and site drainage.
The geometry will be dictated by the specifics of the project site and topography. Geometry for each wall generally consists of: wall length, wall height and the location of corners and curves.
Soil is one of the main components of the struction. Soils come in numerous types and compositions. Therefore, Soil properities are used in the wall analysis to predict a wall’s overall performance.
