Deciding on a company to supply and install your retaining wall

A retaining wall is a wall that holds back earth and water therefore the quality has to be exceptional and only of the highest standard. Let’s talk about the MPA strength, the angle of the wall and the density certificate to give you more insight.

What is MPA strength?

The MPA strength is the actual strength per block. This is to make sure the block is the most accurate strength to do the job at hand. You want quality when building a wall, you would want to do it right the first time and not have it crumble.

Does the company supply a density certificate?

A density certificate is an engineering certificate which allows the sign off on the structure of the wall. This gives you peace of mind that the wall is one hundred percent stable in all aspects and will last a life time. Not to mention this is required by law for any structural wall being erected on site. Always ask about a density certificate and if the company can supply it.

The angle of the wall

When you think of a retaining wall, more often than not you build it for a purpose and to create another level on top. Bear in mind the angle of the wall may differ depending on the height you require. The higher the retaining wall goes, the more the angle increases therefore giving you less room to play around with on top.
