The System

Big Block Retaining Wall

Everywhere you go throughout every day, there are things that you pass and never think about twice. These are things that we rely on to work, the things that we expect to stand the test of time and to do their job day after day for many years, with as little maintenance as possible. If things were any different, our lives would be much more difficult. Roads, gutters, bridges: we expect them to stay in place, to serve us, to last us. There’s another thing that falls into this category, however, that we think about less than anything.

Retaining walls. Their purposes are many, but it all comes down to one quality. Just as we expect roads to be where we need them from one week to the next, we expect the retaining walls that hold up those roads to follow the same standards. Now, this is an extreme example, but anytime we use a retaining wall, its integrity needs to be beyond question. Separating yards into sections, barricading low-lying lands from floods, keeping our bridges safe: these are the sorts of tall tasks to which retaining walls are called on a regular basis.

Exclusive Gravity Extenders

MagnumStone Gravity Retaining Wall Extenders replace Geogrid reinforcements by using a tongue-and-groove concrete system that meets or exceeds the demands of engineers.

This system reduces the massive footprints demanded by cantilevered traditional gravity retaining walls and gives developers and owners greater use of land above the wall.

The concrete mass extenders use a tongue-and-groove connection to lock into the back of the retaining wall blocks. The extenders may also be locked into each other creating deeper units, allowing for flexible design and easy installation. The system’s design allows ample room immediately behind the wall for utility services.

MagnumStone Gravity Extenders In Action

MagnumStone gravity retaining wall extenders also reduce the amount of concrete required compared to competitive solid gravity-wall. Because of the unique hollow core design and the large spaces between extenders side by side It also reduces the amount of production and transportation costs.

MagnumStone concrete mass extenders are available in lengths of 2 and 4 feet and when chained together, the system can create extenders up to 12 feet or greater. A free-draining material is placed in the MagnumStone and around each extender units for the entire wall project.

MagnumStone retaining wall is available in setbacks of 4.5, 2.4 and 0 degrees (near vertical), and in a variety of beautiful faces. Please check with your local producer for the setbacks and faces available in your region.
