A self-supporting or cantilever retaining wall is designed to rely on its own self-weight plus backfill on the foundation to stand up and retain the soil behind it. These precast retaining walls are designed to form a boundary to accommodate changes in ground level making them ideal for reprofiling of sloping sites.

With its high strength, durability and low maintenance requirements Precast Concrete is the best choice for standalone earth retaining walls. 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.  In addition, the relatively thin section size makes them space efficient when compared to gabion walls.
