Concrete support and protection walls

This page concerns large, more technical concrete structures, for example noise barriers, flood protection walls, roadside retaining/breast walls. Once again, all the kits provided by FassadenGrün are fully suitable but please note that problems can occur when drilling so we advise you to read the information provided via the link.


Properties of protective walls

The pictured walls here can be found as embankment walls on sloping terrain, noise barriers at highways and industrial areas, or as flood protection along rivers. They are always made of reinforced concrete, sometimes set on-site but mostly pre-made and ordered. Small protective walls for homes and gardens are discussed in  "Partitions".

 

Appropriate construction methods

All five construction styles, with the standard fixtures, are suitable. With middle 'Classic' kits and also with heavy and massive kits but problems can occur if the walls thickness only slightly exceeds 8cm. If using a Heavy kit, the shorter mount WM 12161 can be used and glued with a composite mortar rather than rawplugs. If in doubt about your walls thickness, proceed with caution and treat as "thin walled concrete"
