Dry build retaining walls with a ‘naturally textured' finish.

Features and benefits:

  • A distinctive design allows taller wall construction in incredibly tight spaces. For use in developments or where space is at a premium.
  • The standard 4º block has anti-climb benefits - designed with playgrounds in mind.
  • The stone cut finish uses patented technology to create a ‘crunched’ finish, similar to natural stone.
  • The double-sided block is recommended for finishing the final course of a normal Vertica retaining wall when both sides would be visible.
  • The double-sided block can be split in half to create an aesthetically pleasing stop end block for a Vertica® Standard Block retaining wall - an alternative to curving a wall in to the bank.
  • The double-sided block can be used as a self-supporting, freestanding, mortarless wall - not retaining.
  • A variety of warm earth tone colours are available in a natural textured finish.
  • Mortarless and pinless - built with no mortar or concrete, the unique dry build locking system allows fast track construction in all weathers. This means quicker installation rates than traditional brick and blockwork.
  • Features a patented locating lug that acts as a guide to ensure accurate alignment and precise set back every time.
  • Suitable for all retaining walls - from low height landscape to tall commercial walls.
  • The capping block is shaped asymmetrically (tapered), making capping straight or curved walls much easier.
  • BBA approved - minimum 28 day compressive strength of 40 N/mm² and satisfies the durability requirement of class XF2 in accordance with BS 8500-1:2015.

Minimum radius:

  • Outside curve (to back of block on bottom course): 1.8 m.
  • Inside curve (to back of block on bottom course): 2.4 m.
