Some projects require a significant amount of earth and civil works done before the building of infrastructure can begin on the site. Earth retention systems play a critical role in shoring up and stabilising the surrounding soil so that it doesn’t erode and become unstable both whilst construction is underway and throughout the life of the infrastructure being built on it. Since water is one of the most common reasons for retaining walls to fail, the wall must have good drainage, as water can accumulate behind the walls. Earth retention systems can be installed permanently or temporarily during construction activities with a variety of techniques depending on the situation. Concrete blocks have the advantage of being an easy-to-deliver component-sized unit ideal for retaining wall projects of different shapes and sizes. Retaining walls offer the advantage of concrete and masonry bricks, which are modular and interlocking to facilitate use.
Using concrete products for earth retention is beneficial in several ways. Earth retention systems offered by Dallcon are designed and constructed in such a way that they resist earth pressure, including construction and traffic activity, control movement, diminish potential water pressure and protect the workforce during construction. Precast Post & Panel retaining walls are also cost-effective as the walls serve the needs of the landscape and provide ease of use, customisation, and accessibility. Concrete retaining walls can prevent soil from falling off a slope and help prevent erosion. Retaining walls can lift the landscape to a level and thus prevent rainwater from moving, which in turn reduces erosion damage. Dallcon takes care of various earth retention systems for different projects like excavation shoring, erosion control, landslide mitigation etc.
Retention systems not only help in your project’s cost, time, and safe building schedules but also reduce the risk associated with potential ground movement. Dallcon has been providing various earth retention systems with customised products as per the need of the projects and their geotechnical conditions. We have a variety of concrete products for retaining systems, including panels, L-blocks, concrete doughnuts, loading ramps, barriers, and T-Blocks.
At Dallcon, we not only customise products according to your needs but also offer free delivery to locations within a 500km radius of Dalwallinu. We also provide a nationwide delivery or delivery and install options too.
