      • Please consult with your local council for design requirements and regulations prior to the construction of your wall.

     

    • For retaining walls exceeding 900mm, or supporting additional loads, slopes etc., engineering advice should be sought. Please contact our Reps for advice – Val on 0292 976 964 or Bryan on 0275 314 132.

    NOTES

      • Colour and texture may vary between retaining wall types and batches. To ensure a uniform finish we recommend that you blend off multiple pallets if the job is greater than one pallet.

     

      • Concrete products may display ‘efflorescence’ (whitening) which is a natural occurrence. We have taken all possible steps to minimise this from happening in our products.

     

    • All dimensions and specifications are approximate.
