  • Thank you for the opportunity to introduce you to the pioneer of the Big Block retaining wall industry… Creating one stop solution for your wall needs. Today we are going to talk about the many solutions Redi-Rock can offer your company. An introduction to Redi-Rock Our Complete product line-Freestanding, Retaining, Columns and steps Engineering resources Installation Applications with proven success Conclusions
  • “ A Massive, Architectural, Wet Cast, Engineered Segmental Retaining Wall System Designed For Soil Retention & Erosion Control”
  • Redi-Rock International is leading the Big Block retaining wall market in North America with the most advanced retaining wall products and retaining wall designs available today. Our system captures The Essence of Natural Rock with 3 Rock Textures: Limestone, Cobblestone, and Ledgestone The bread and butter of our system is the top, middle, and bottom retaining walls blocks The block are trapezoidal in shape, fitting together like one ton LEGOS. The Blocks weigh between 1200 and 2400 lbs and are nearly 6sqft of face per block. The face is 18” high and 46” long.
  • Redi-Rock blocks are poured face down.
  • Let’s take a closer look at the dimensions of a typical 41” middle block
  • Durability Less susceptibility to freeze thaw less porous to reduce moisture absorption reduced maintenance cost Quality Control Consistency in product manufacturing
  • Maximizing usable land and minimizing excavation Place utilities behind wall
  • 41” Series is the core of our system This is a typical cross section of our 41” series Gravity walls allow us to provide a solution that maximizes usable space
  • Charlottesville, Virginia
  • 41” Series planter blocks expands the core system for additional flexibility This is a typical cross section of our 41” series with planter blocks Gravity walls allow us to provide a solution that maximizes usable space
  • Little Rock, Arkansas
  • The massive 60” Base Block (3,400lbs) works in conjunction with the 41” series to achieve greater heights This is a typical cross section of a wall with our 60” base bock Gravity walls allow us to provide a solution that maximizes usable space
  • Pigeon Forge, TN
  • 9” Setback Blocks provides a unique solution to achieve heights up to 30’ under site specific condition. (Can also be used with the 60” Base Block) This is a typical cross section of a wall with our 60” base bock Gravity walls allow us to provide a solution that maximizes usable space
  • 9” setback wall at Joe’s Creek in Tulsa Oklahoma
  • Customized Colors Available
  • Here is a new software program available to engineers to design Redi-Rock walls. This program is available to be downloaded free at www.redi-rock.com. (good time to hand out the one page flyer on the analysis software and go over the bullet points) This program has been available for over a year and we have not heard anything but good comments from this program
  • Taller walls can be built with our patented geo-connector Redi-Rock has Preliminary Design Charts available for reinforced walls Connection Testing for multiple geogrid manufacturers Design Charts available Cross sections Calcs CAD Files
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Left - Gaynor Road Bridge, Ohio Right - 10 Mile Creek Wing Walls Sylvania, Ohio
  • Top - Clock Tower Plaza Cincinnati, OH Bottom - Florence Stream Channel Cincinnati, OH
  • Now we would like to introduce you to our new system for reinforced soil walls…the PC or Positive Connection System.
  • This is the 28” PC block. We have cast a slot through the middle of our block.
  • You can see in this cross-section, there is a tapered slot which is cast all the way through the block.
  • The slot allows us to wrap a 12” wide strip of geogrid through the block. The top and bottom legs extend the full length back into the reinforced soil zone.
  • Here you can see an installation of two rows of PC blocks. Top and Bottom Layer = 25% Coverage Middle Layers = 50% Coverage
  • It’s very easy to install the grid strips through the blocks after they are set. Grid can also be installed through block before it is set.
  • This slide shows testing points from the PC block in comparison to more typical “big block” connections. You can see that the PC block connection does not vary depending on how much weight is on the blocks. This is what we mean when we say that the PC connection is weight independent. You have just as strong a connection with the top blocks in the wall as you do with the bottom blocks.
  • The PC System allows for some Flexibiltiy in Design. For Example, you can install geogrid strips on every other row of blocks. This leaves room for concrete piers in the reinforced soil zone.
  • We can easily accommodate obstructions behind the wall.
  • The PC System works well with CIP traffic barriers.
  • We can also incorporate a Cast-In-Place Coping layer if you need it in your design.
  • A big advantage of the PC System is the performance of the connection.
  • The PC System provides corrosion resistance. There are no metal parts in the reinforcement or connection to the blocks.
  • The PC System is simple to install. And with each block providing almost 6 square feet of wall face, the wall can be built quickly.
  • The PC System is simple and reliable. There are precast concrete blocks and geogrid strips. The PC System has been tested with Mirafi geogrids, which have been through the NTPEP review process.
  • A strong point of the Redi-Rock system is our ability to provide next generation aesthetics. In addition to our 3 rock faces, we can also produce custom molds. We have made landmark blocks with dates, tribal seals, and project monuments. You will find a “can do” attitude if your project requires custom blocks.
  • The complete line of retaining wall and accessory blocks allows Redi-Rock to provide much more that just a retaining wall. We truly have a complete system to meet your needs.
  • Freestanding, or above ground, walls provide flexible solutions independently or to expand the use of our retaining wall system
  • Fort Chaffee, ARK
  • Fort Drum New York
  • Boardwalk in front of a river in Northern Michigan.
  • Product line conclusion- Above Project is in Missouri Integrate all Redi-Rock Product lines into one project Retaining w/ planter Freestanding Columns Steps
  • 10/30 discussion The leveling pad/foundation should be installed with free draining washed stone, compacted aggregate installed to 95% Standard Proctor density, or poured concrete designed to site specific requirements.
  • Redi-Rock is a product for strong minds and weak backs Redi-Rock is set with equipment that is usually on site, reducing project cost and increasing installation efficiency Redi-Rock’s knob and groove system is self aligning Every block installed is nearly 6sqft of face Typical crew is one person on the equipment and 2 grounds crew. Gravity walls can be installed in less than weather conditions.
