Precast Concrete Retaining Wall Manufacturer
A retaining wall is a structure designed and constructed to resist the lateral pressure of the soil so that it can maintain different levels of soil on both sides. Arto provides Cantilever, Cradle, Gravity, MSE and Counterfort retaining walls. They offer quick, safe, durable construction and reduce waste.
Designs are dependent on project specifications and applications. Soil type and soil retaining levels. Lateral earth loads from soil and hydrostatic loads from ground water. Surcharge loads from nearby impact loads. Seismic loads where applicable. After determining the size and design parameters required the appropriate ISO standards are used to provide the most economical design.
- Grade: M30 - M50. Reinforcement: Fe500
Arto retaining walls are cast using concrete with a low w/c ratio; it is poured into steel mechanized equipment called precast molds. Rebar is preplaced and secured inside the mould. Form vibrators are used to consolidate concrete to attain homogeneity and release any trapped air. Hole formers may be incorporated, or coring is done if needed. The product is then stripped and the mould is reused.
At every stage meticulous testing is done to maintain quality. Every concrete batch undergoes cube testing to ensure strength parameters are met along with slump testing to ensure consistence in the mix design. After demoulding the product goes through visual inspection to ensure no honey-combing, voids or cracks are present. In case any test fails the batch will be rejected.
Arto Retaining walls are designed to be installed with ease, requiring very little excavation to place and a minimal amount of backfill. Arto retaining walls are supplied with lifting anchors to make lifting and placing both easy and precise.
