At ReCon, we are proud of our tradition of offering a product line that adds value for our customers, and for our wall design and wall contractor partners. Whether the ReCon application focuses on the scale and aesthetics of the ReCon Block, the durability of the wet-cast, air-entrained concrete, the considerable gravity wall heights that can be achieved, or the construction efficiencies associated with our product, it is our intention to solve site specific challenges and add value.
The design of a ReCon segmental retaining wall may be fairly straightforward or it may be quite complex and involve a high degree of geotechnical and/or civil engineering expertise. At first glance, the steps involved in construction of a ReCon retaining wall appear relatively simple. In fact, they are; howeve , it is critical that these procedures are done properly if the wall is to last and perform as designed. This is due to the fact that the ReCon units themselves are often just a key
component in what is a more complex and inter- dependent composite earthen structure. A number of important variables must be analyzed before a proper wall design can be finalized.
This manual is intended to provide wall designers, wall installers and others with the information useful in the design, the construction and cost estimation of a ReCon retaining wall that will remain attractive and structurally stable for the duration of its intended design life.
