Cantilever Wall Panels
In addition to our horizontal pre-stressed concrete panels, we also manufacture vertical cantilever concrete panels, an alternative to the L-shape retaining wall and horizontal concrete panels. The vertical panels are ideal if you require a retaining wall with no framework and no protruding toe that would cause an obstruction.
The vertical panels are available in three widths; 1000mm, 1200mm and 1500mm. The wall heights can be up to 4500mm (excluding embedment depth). The panels can be manufactured to withstand loads from one, or two sides depending on the application.
The cantilever panels are installed by digging a 600mm deep foundation trench, which receives a 100mm concrete base for setting out of the steel cradles, which support the bottom of the panels ready for levelling. Once the panels are positioned and supported with props, the panels are then tied into the reinforcement for the foundation slab before the concrete is poured to secure the panels. A concrete floor slab can then be poured providing a neat floor to wall joint.
Typical applications for these types of panels include:
- Silage clamps
- Slurry lagoons
- Waste & recycling stations
- Push walls
- Grain walls
- Aggregate bays
