The Anchor Vertica® system is designed for steep, sloping hillsides and other traditionally difficult installation areas. Vertica walls can be built to virtually any height in incredibly tight spaces thanks to patented, built-in alignment locators and a near vertical rise for less excavation and land loss. Typically used with geosynthetic reinforcement, Anchor Vertica blocks meet or exceed industry standards for strength and durability.

Anchor Vertica® is a dry build segmental retaining wall system which allows fast track construction in all weathers and is suitable for most applications from low height residential landscaping to tall commercial retaining walls. The blocks provide an aesthetically pleasing facing to a geogrid reinforced soil structure designed by a suitably qualified and competent engineer.

The Anchor Vertica® blocks are traditionally landscape orientated with a surface finish that gives the appearance of riven faced dressed stone. The blocks incorporate a locating lug on the top of each block which automatically provides a uniform setback (2º, 4° or 7° face batter) and perfect alignment. Geogrid reinforcement is required for engineered walls over 1.0 m high. AG provide a design service and recommend that they are consulted early in the design process.

Anchor Vertica® is available in two finishes – Straight or StoneCut®. AG have introduced a new ‘double sided’ block to the Vertica range which enables a vertical wall to be constructed without mortar with the same textured finish on both sides.

Vertica® is also available for machine installation, which can make the installation process significantly faster.

Please consult AG technical literature for further details.
