Retaining walls

How to install a retaining wall?

Installing a retaining wall can be done in different ways, depending on the specific situation and the desired stability.
Here are some general steps that can be followed when placing a retaining wall:

  1. Prepare the ground. Check whether the surface on which you are going to place the retaining walls is flat and load-bearing. If not, it is essential to first realize this, as unevenness and lack of load-bearing capacity can cause problems such as damage to the product.

  2. Placing retaining walls. Set up the retaining walls on the prepared load-bearing ground. Ensure that the elements are positioned correctly according to your design.

  3. Secure the retaining walls. Start bolting the retaining walls with the supplied materials. Be careful though! It is recommended to first loosely tighten all the bolts, and only then firmly tighten each bolt.

  4. Drilling holes. Then, drill the holes into the load-bearing ground where you want to attach the retaining walls. The bottom of the retaining walls already has holes, so you just need to drill matching holes in the ground.

  5. Connecting retaining walls. Connect the retaining walls to the ground using plugs or, if needed, a chemical anchor. Again, first slightly tighten all bolts and then tighten them one by one securely.

  6. Filling the inside of the retaining wall. After securing the retaining walls, fill the inside of the retaining wall with the appropriate material, such as soil or sand.

  7. Completing paving. After filling the retaining walls, you can complete any paving that you have planned. Ensure a stable and even finish for the best result.

Installing a retaining wall can be a complex process and it is important to follow the specific instructions and guidelines provided by the retaining wall manufacturer. It may be useful to seek advice from ADEZZ or contractors experienced in installing retaining walls.

What should you pay attention to when installing a retaining wall?

When installing a retaining wall, there are several important considerations to pay attention to ensure a sturdy and durable construction. Here are some points to pay attention to:

  • Soil testing: It is important to know the properties of the soil, such as its composition, water content and stability. A soil survey can help determine the required dimensions and anchoring systems for the retaining wall

  • Building permit: Check whether planning permission is required before installing a retaining wall. Depending on the height and location of the retaining wall, there may be legal requirements

  • Design and load: The design of the retaining wall must meet the required stability and load. Consider the maximum height of the retaining wall and the pressure that the ground exerts on the wall. This can help determine the required dimensions and reinforcements.

  • Construction and drainage: Ensure that the retaining wall is properly constructed and that there is sufficient drainage to prevent water accumulation behind the wall.

  • Professional advice: If in doubt, contact us. We will be happy to help you with technical advice on installing the retaining wall.

    It is important to stress that the points mentioned above are general guidelines and the correct procedures and guidelines should be followed depending on the specific situation and local requirements.
