A king post retaining wall, is a versatile retaining wall system, which can be used to retain a wide variety of materials. Installation of the concrete panels between the steel columns is quick and easy, the panels can either be positioned into the web of a steel column or attached to the outside face, using bolts and steel plates provided. The panels require a steel column at each end to attach to, ideal if using in portal frame building. The panels sit directly on top of pad foundations, so no additional support is required under the panels.
The size, weight and type of universal beam or universal column used in a king post retaining wall will vary. This will be determined by the density of the retained material and any additional surcharge that may be applied to the wall. There are three main options for the steel foundation design, auger, mass concrete or base plate to bolt the steel to pad foundations.
Once installed, the horizontal and vertical joints between the prestressed panels can be sealed, enabling these products to be used for the storage of liquids. Concrete panels are manufactured under factory control, have been designed to relevant British (BS) standards and are CE marked.
Below is a table outlining the characteristics of the concrete panels. Here you can find information on concrete strength, material density and surcharge capacity. If you require any further details please contact us and one of our product experts will be happy to provide more information. You should consult a structural engineer to confirm the steels required to support the panels.
* These are the maximum values that can be achieved with concrete panels, this will vary depending on the panel thickness & panel length. Concrete panel finish is class A to the front face and hand trowel finish to the back face.
The main product dimensions of the prestressed concrete panel range can be found below.
There are four standard width options and three height options, however non-standard heights can be manufactured from 500mm to 1500mm.
Prestressed panels are manufactured to order, enabling panel length to be cast to suit steel centres.
We can also supply you with product data sheets and .dwg flies for all our precast products, which are available on request.
