KINGPOST RETAINING WALLS - PRECAST WALL PANELS
Using precast, prestressed concrete wall panels the kingpost retaining wall system is a cost effective solution for earth retaining, embankment retaining or flood defence walls and can be used for both permanent or temporary works.
Also known as "Berlin Walls" or "Soldier Walls" prestressed, precast concrete panels are slotted in between vertical H piles to form the retaining wall. Available in lengths up to 6m the prestressed concrete panels are available in 145mm, 180mm and 280mm section sizes and a range of widths which can be used in combination to achieve the desired wall height. The appropriate section size is determined by the span length, the height of the wall and the anticipated loading. The precast panels have an interlocking tongue and groove joint ensuring that they fit together neatly ready for immediate use.
