The Anchorplex™ retaining wall system offers a unique, nonconventional solution to problematic wall construction sites. It is a retaining wall built with Anchor™ products and self-compacting structural backfill specified by Anchor Wall Systems, and backed by engineering support tools developed by Anchor.
When used in combination with blocks of the appropriate shape, the structural backfill attaches itself to the wall facing, effectively extending the depth and increasing the mass of the facing. In addition to reinforcing the block facing, the structural backfill zone also serves as the required drainage zone.
Using the Anchorplex retaining wall system completely eliminates the need for the construction of a mechanically stabilized earth zone behind the wall facing and requires substantially less excavation than is usually necessary in grid-reinforced wall construction.
Because of these efficiencies and the design flexibility afforded with the Anchorplex system, millions of square feet of such walls have been installed and are successfully performing worldwide.
Information in this section is typical and should not be used for construction without the seal, when required, of a registered Professional Engineer in the state in which the wall will be constructed.
