WHY L-SHAPED RETAINING WALLS
Earth Lock's design allows for easy installation. It functions as a monolithic wall once installation is complete. Its very configuration gives Earth Lock® its structural integrity, eliminating the disadvantages of site built retaining wall systems. "Structure, Strength & Longevity...Comes Delivered on Our Trucks" with the Earth Lock® L-Wall System.
  • Effective heights range from 2' to 16'
  • The static system (L-shape in combination with internal reinforcement) is very strong and durable, and can withstand extremely high loads
  • Designs can include inside or outside corners and concave or convex radius patterns, not just straight run walls.
  • Less dependent on field installation when compared to other wall systems
  • Flexible aesthetically due to almost unlimited surface designs
 
SMOOTH SURFACES
Horizontal production methods are used at U.P. Concrete Pipe Company to create almost pore-free, perfectly smooth surfaces with chamfered edges, setting a new quality standard for non-textured designs. Achieve both architectural beauty and cost effectiveness at your site with the use of Earth Lock®.

TEXTURED SURFACES
With the help of form liners, Earth Lock® L-Walls can provide literally any surface design.

STAINED SURFACES
As with the Founders Landing project in Marquette, Michigan pictured above and below, these designs can be stained, giving the appearance of a multi-colored natural stone built wall. Surface possibilities are almost limitless when form liners and staining are combined.

COLORED PANELS
Different color pigments can be added to the redi-mix before placement into forms for finishing and cutting

ENGRAVED SURFACES
Whether the finished wall is plain, colored, or stained, engraving allows etching of your company logo, or even a mural, into the surface of the wall panel(s).
