BridgePro Engineering have broken with tradition in the concrete manufacturing environment by licensing Verti-Block™ a strong retaining wall system to support a variety of projects that is also attractive as well as affordable. Ideal for a variety of landscaping and earth retaining projects including highways, bridges, sea walls, commercial and industrial sites, schools, parks, back yards, and more. Able to accommodate winding landscapes and even tight curves, Verti-Block is designed to add interest to any landscape while securely retaining earth.
A look like no other
Verti-Block offers a naturally textured face to provide a beautiful, cost-effective earth retaining solution. The interlocking nature of Verti-Block allows you to create curves while retaining the structural integrity of the wall sound. Beyond its structural purpose, Verti-Block is a favourite of property owners for its beautiful rockwork look. Verti-Block’s hidden joints allow a finished wall to appear more like stacked stone. Plus, Verti-Block is easily stained to complement its surroundings with a beautiful, weather and UV-resistant finish.
Strong and versatile
Even more appealing, Verti-Block is incredibly strong and versatile thanks to its interlocking design. Featuring a male-and-female style connection, Verti-Block units ensure you’ll get a secure fit that guarantees the correct amount of setback on every installation. Verti-Block’s hollow design saves money by using less concrete and lowering transportation costs. It also ensures the right amount of crushed stone backfill.
Verti-Blocks were created with transport and installation in mind to ensure they can be assembled effortlessly in even the most demanding of environments. The male and female connection eliminates placement error to ensure strength and an exact installation every-time. The unique size and design incorporates a hollow block perfectly proportioned for the most popular types of landscaping projects. And its hollow design not only makes it affordable but easier to handle than solid block, allowing smaller plant to perform the installation in tight to access spots.
Engineered for strength
While the hollow nature of Verti-Block makes it cost effective and easier to handle, it also improves its ability to retain earth. Even in poor soil conditions, Verti-Block can be stacked higher than other blocks without the use of no-fines backfill, tiebacks or geogrid. The male-and-female design of Verti-Block adds a stronger connection than blocks relying on friction alone. The crushed stone fill also interlocks and creates a continuous mass for greater strength.
A cost effective solution
Best of all, Verti-Block delivers tremendous cost savings. As a hollow block, Verti-Block is lighter, requiring less manpower, equipment, and transportation costs. It’s quick to install, and the product itself is less expensive to manufacture than solid block options. The internal drainage through the block’s infill means no over-or under-excavating because no additional crushed stone backfill is required.
