GeoRoc is a Mechanically Stabilised Earth wall system that is designed at a panel height of 300mm high to ensure maximum efficiency within the construction process. GeoRoc’s dimensions also allow for a more lightweight, health and safety compliant system.

GeoRoc is a precast concrete alternative to traditional walling systems in both rural and urban environments and can be offered in both sandstone and charcoal.

GeoRoc is a mechanically stabilised earth wall structure. It is a closed faced system with a face batter of 100mm/1m vertical.

The 665mm x 300mm high C50 concrete panel creates a strong, robust unit catering for required surcharge loading it is typically designed for a surcharge load of 10kPa.This can be reviewed and increased with site-specific design works which are undertaken by Retaining UK.

These benefits allow GeoRoc to offer a suitable aesthetically pleasing solution in urban environments. 300mm high panels ensure optimal spacing for GeoGrid requirements of maximum distance 600mm.

Method of Work

Stage 1

  1. Construction should commence at the lowest design level to permit the wall to be bonded correctly.
  2. Set out the line of wall and associated foundation
  3. Excavate to the underside of the formation removing any site vegetation and soft spots ensuring that the exposed ground meets the minimum load-bearing requirements as stipulated in the design
  4. Place and compact sub-base to provide the foundation to the designed dimensions and level
