Outside Corners

Retaining walls are an important part of our landscaping design. They provide both functional and aesthetic benefits, including:

  • preventing soil erosion

  • creating flat surfaces to grow your plants

  • adding beauty and character to your outdoor space

But retaining walls can be vulnerable to damage from extreme weather conditions or varying pressures.

One of the most vulnerable points of a retaining wall is the outside corner, which faces the most pressure and load. Luckily, there is a solution to this common issue — gravity retaining wall extenders.

Check out the outside corner images below to see how MagnumStone’s textured block facings mix stunning aesthetics with high-strength performance.

Boosting Retaining Wall Performance with MagnumStone Blocks

MagnumStone blocks have a unique design that sets them apart from other retaining wall blocks. Their hollow core design facilitates superior drainage. This prevents water damage and prolongs the life of the retaining wall.

Furthermore, MagnumStone has successfully addressed the issue of weak retaining wall corner blocks. We achieved this through gravity retaining wall extender units. The extender units can overlap, providing the necessary reinforcement. This added stability enables a retaining wall with corners to withstand various pressures.

MagnumStone’s Gravity Retaining Wall Extender Units for Reinforcing Weak Corners

MagnumStone’s gravity retaining wall extender units reinforce the weakest points of retaining walls. They are specially designed for the corners, which are particularly vulnerable. They attach to standard blocks to create an interlocking extension. The resulting structure fortifies and adds mass to the base courses of gravity retaining walls. They are available in increments of 2 ft. (0.61 m.) or 4 ft. (1.2 m.), which allows for the building of taller gravity walls.

The overlapping design of MagnumStone’s extender units creates a continuous reinforcement system. This system provides additional strength and stability to a retaining wall with corners. Extending the wall depth and adding mass distribute the load and pressure more evenly. As a result, the retaining wall’s stability and durability are significantly enhanced.

Using MagnumStone’s gravity retaining wall extender units offers several benefits, including:

Improved Stability

The interlocking extender units make a retaining wall with corners stronger and more stable. Consequently, the risk of collapse or damage is reduced.

Increased Durability

The extender units distribute the load and pressure more evenly throughout the retaining wall. This, in turn, enhances the wall’s durability and prolongs its life.

Flexibility in Design

MagnumStone’s extender units can extend the wall depth in 2 ft. or 4 ft. increments. This feature enhances designers’ flexibility in their design options. As a result, it allows for taller and more complex retaining walls with angle inside corners.

Easy Installation

The interlocking design of the extender units makes installation easy and straightforward. This saves time and reduces the risk of errors.

Overall, MagnumStone’s extender units are fantastic for reinforcing retaining wall with corners. The product’s unique design provides performance benefits that make them reliable. They’re the best choice for anyone looking to fortify and stabilize their retaining walls.
