Retaining walls must have sufficient overall stability and structural strength under the action of earth pressure at the backfill of the wall. The stability of the retaining wall under the action of the load, the stability of the sliding along the base, the overturning stability around the wall toe rotation and the bearing capacity of the foundation should be checked during design. When there is a soft soil layer under the substrate, the sliding stability of the soil layer should be checked. When the bearing capacity of the foundation is small, engineering measures should be considered to ensure the stability of the retaining wall.
Applications: Railways, highways, water conservancy, harbors, mines and other projects.
1. What sizes and profiles is retaining wall posts available in?
Retaining wall post is available in all sizes for customer’s needs and three profiles:
Corner, Joiner and End Post profiles
Retaining wall posts 75mm system suits sleepers that are 75mm width
Retaining wall posts 50mm system suits sleepers that are 50mm width
2. What post size goes with which wall height?
The retaining wall post system is made to suit 200mm timber sleepers, the most common and popular size timber sleepers.
3. How deep do I need to put the posts into the ground?
As a general rule of thumb, half the post should be in the ground and half out.
4. How far apart do I space my posts?
Post spacing is dependent on two factors:
i. your design, that is how long you want your sleepers to be in your project space. Timber sleepers are generally available in 2.4m lengths
ii. the weight behind the wall which will have the most significant bearing; the greater the load behind the wall the more prone to bowing the sleepers may be. For a more accurate indication of the maximum length of sleeper to use, please consult with a landscaper or timber supplier in your local area.
