Our Shuttabloc Wall System has been designed to provide an economical alternative to casting retaining walls on site. The patented design marries the benefits of precast with cast-in-place concrete by combining hollow reinforced precast elements with poured-in-place self-consolidating concrete. The final result is a factory-controlled finish, monolithic concrete wall comparable to cast-in-place cantilevered walls.
Our wall system is rapidly and easily installed in less than half the time of traditional cast-in-place walls. Horizontal rebar is threaded between adjacent units which connects the individual units together - preventing displacement under loading. By pumping concrete into and through the continuous wall units, the horizontal reinforcement becomes part of the structure similarly to if the walls were cast on site. The wall’s footing is a simple heel and toe pour, with no additional design requirements compared to a cast-in-place wall footing. Wall heights vary from 8’ to 32’, and formliner finishes make this product versatile for any projects ranging from DOT, high-end developments, earth retaining, bulk material storage, bridge abutments, or building construction.
