Dillon offers licensing opportunities for manufacturers looking to strengthen their current product offerings.
Segmented retaining walls (SRWs) are dry stacked on a crushed stone footer and have an integral locking mechanism for positive connection from block to block. Gravity walls (less than four feet high) can be installed with the SRWs, retaining the earth. A segmental retaining wall
system can also be installed with geotextile reinforcement in the soil for greater heights.
Drainage systems are incorporated to remove moisture from behind the wall. This system is made of clean stone for a drainage column, geotextile filter fabrics and drainage pipes. Retained soil is placed behind the drainage column. Backfill and compaction should be completed one layer at a time. Successive courses are then added to reach the desired height.
The wall is completed by capping with Dillon’s patented WeatherDome® rounded caps or flat caps. Finally, a drainage swell should be created just behind the caps to mitigate any chance of water infiltrating the infill zone.
As with all retaining walls, and engineer should be consulted before construction.
EverLoc® is palletized and stretch wrapped for protection from the elements and to help move product around a jobsite.
