Support and concrete protection walls

This area of "Concrete walls" addresses bigger, more technical concrete buildings such as sound barriers, flood protection walls, motorway retaining walls and embankment walls of "L" elements.

All FassadenGrün kits are perfectly compatible with such structures but problems can occur when drilling, so please follow the instructions provided in the link.

Properties of protective walls

The walls pictured are examples of embankment walls on sloping terrain, motorway and industrial sound barriers and flood protection walls. They can be made on site using specific moulds but usually are assembled from pre-cast concrete slabs or bricks. These large scale walls are also always made from reinforced concrete. Small, protective walls for the home and garden are discussed in "Partitions".

Appropriate construction methods

All 5 construction styles, with the standard fixtures, are suitable. With middle 'Classic' kits and also with heavy and massive kits. Problems can appear if the walls thickness only slightly exceeds 8cm. With heavy kits, shorter holder WM 12161 can be stuck together alternatively, sieve shells are not necessary. If in doubt about your walls thickness, proceed with caution and treat it as "thin walled concrete".
