There are numerous configurations that incorporate steps into a retaining wall. The most common is where the steps begin at the base of the wall and go up through the wall to the top grade. Other step configurations, such as steps protruding from a wall or running parallel up along the wall face can also be designed and would be built using the same general procedures.
Walls Adjacent to Steps are Stacked Vertical (0° Batter).
Step Units are double-stacked for increased stability and resistance to settlement.
Remove 1" from back of tongue to allow units to be stacked without batter.
