ACP's precast, prestressed concrete panels are ideal for the construction of retaining walls. Where the wall to be constructed is part of a building horizontal panels are most suitable. These panels span between and pass the load to the stanchions. Where the wall is independent ACP's vertical cantilever panels provide the solution.


Panel Type Required

ACP Concrete manufacture three types of panels for retaining walls, 145mm thick, 180mm thick and 280mm thick.  The type of panel required generally depends on the predicted loading. This is a function of the height of the stored material, its density and angle of repose and, in the case of the horizontal panels system, the maximum span between columns/RSJ's. This information will be required by our staff to assess the type of panel best suited to the situation.

Horizontal Panel Fixing - Also known as the Kingpost Retaining Wall System - the panels are cast with four sockets in the outside face and are clipped to the columns/posts using plates and bolts provided.

Vertical Cantilever Panel Fixing - 0.5m of the panel is set into the foundation below finished floor level and the panels are tied into the foundation concrete using reinforcing bars supplied.
