Stability

Our retaining wall block units are among some of the heaviest and most stable units in the world and the first in Ghana. With a face area of 0.1m2 and twice as deep as they are high, the blocks provide a low stable centre of gravity for each unit during construction and finished wall. the stability of our block units combined with industry grade geogrid reinforcement, our walls can achieve a height of over 10m.
 
The blocks have an inbuilt level course system to accommodate any kind of geogrid. The engineered setback between each unit ensures that the overturning moment is significantly reduced again resisting moments. All our walls have a higher resisting moment against overturning moments. This helps to improve the stability of the retaining wall. 

Applications

  • Water Applications

  • Safety and Noise Barriers

  • Erosion Control

  • River and floodwalls

  • Rail Transport

  • Headwalls and Wingwalls

  • Bridge Abutment

 

At George Newyear construction, we work hard to provide innovative solutions to the general constructional needs. Using engineered precast concrete products, we can construct segmental retaining walls up to 11m high. Our current project is a 6m high wall in Accra.  We continue to push the boundaries and developing new ideas to help solve many constructional challenges in the country.
