Retaining Walls

An effective and durable storage solution is important when handling and storing bulk commodities/materials. Typical stored materials include grain, cocoa, soya beans, coal, road salt, fertiliser and various food products. Precast Concrete Retaining Wall Panels provide a versatile, robust storage solution for bulk materials in single or multi store facilities.

Manufactured in controlled factory conditions using Quality Assured concrete, both precast and prestressed precast concrete wall panels provide a known performance, unlike traditional in-situ ‘poured’ walls reducing the need for specialist and costly engineering input.


At ACP (Concrete) Ltd, we manufacture three different wall products in a wide range of sizes to suit almost all requirements.  Our unrivalled experience can help you to make the right choice between horizontal panels, vertical cantilever walls and free-standing, moveable walling.

There any many factors to consider in choosing the right retaining walls for bulk storage and ACP’s knowledgeable staff can help throughout the process.

  • What material are you storing?
  • Do the walls to be single or double loaded?
  • Is there a legal requirement for fire protection/separation?
  • Do you think you may need to add an additional wall or would like to extend the height of the walls at a later date?
