Description

Anchor Diamond® is a dry build retaining wall system designed to be constructed without mortar or pins to create retaining walls up to 1.2 m high (Diamond 30)/ 0.9 m high (Diamond 25) where there are no slopes above or below the wall and no surcharge. Anchor Diamond® blocks can be used to construct taller walls with the inclusion of geogrid reinforcement when designed by a suitably qualified and competent engineer.

The blocks incorporate a patented rear lip which automatically provides a uniform setback (10.6° face batter) and perfect alignment, thus speeding installation. The system is flexible enough to shift and expand with ground movements around the blocks and can be laid to internal or external radius:

Minimum radius:

  • Outside curve (to back of block on top course): Diamond 30: 0.9 m; Diamond 25: 1.2 m.
  • Inside curve (to back of block on base course): Diamond 30: 2.7 m; Diamond 25: 2.4 m.

Please consult AG technical literature for further details.
