River Bank Protection Walls
You can design and build river protection walls using our Virtabloc system. The blocks are 600mm wide x 600mm high x 1800mm long. They can be configured to build river protection walls in many ways, either with one of our off the shelf systems or bespoke to your needs. Take a look at our retaining wall pages for some ideas.
Virtabloc R are ideal for use in river protection. They are manufactured with ducts cast into them that are set to one side. The offset gives improved structural performance. Rebar is then threaded through the blocks and cement grouted in place. This construction gives the wall greater stability when designed with the correct foundation.
We can help you design your project, we offer a design and supply service. The configuration and design of the river protection depends on the local site criteria.
