Choose from our wide range of retaining structure options
As you would expect from one of Ashford's leading earth retaining structure companies, we offer an extensive range of services; covering everything from reinforced soil walls and retaining structures to gravity walls and gabion mesh walls. Our full range, provided by our experienced team, includes:
Some of the most classic retaining wall structures on the market, our gravity walls are a highly effective and reliable option for any construction project in Ashford. Made from mortarless stone, concrete cribs or masonry units, our gravity walls rely on gravity and a 'batter' setback that leans the structure into the soil that is to be retained. These walls are then filled with free draining stone, before being supplemented and further strengthened by installations such as soil nailing.
One of the oldest styles of gravity wall systems available, crib walls are a very effective yet simple way of stabilising slopes. Designed and manufactured to wrap around and accommodate even the most difficult and unique of curvatures of the surrounding landscape, crib walls offer reliable and exceptional support and expert slope stabilisation at all times.
Reinforced Soil Walls
Often a more viable alternative to the more traditional retaining wall options on the market, our reinforced soil walls can offer substantial savings in both system cost and construction time. In addition, they also offer incredible versatility, making them a great option for any Ashford construction project. As one of Kent's leading ground engineering companies, we specialise in the design and application of many different reinforced soil wall systems that utilise a combination of soil reinforcement geogrids that are securely connected to facing units. These include dry laid concrete modular facing blocks.
Gabion Mesh Walls
Made from wire mesh boxes and filled with either a combination of topsoil and stone or rough cut quarried stone, our rock gabions are a great way of promoting vegetative growth. Designed for full durability and support, our mesh cages and rough stonework form a containment system, where the horizontal component of the self weight of the filled rock gabions act against shear and overturning forces. Our gabion mesh walls are ideal where erosion is a major consideration in stream bank situations.
