The LOCK+LOAD counterfort measures 27” long x 6“ wide at its base and 4.25” tall at the head and weighs ~40 Lb. Th counterfort is made from 5500psi, air entrained, fiber reinforced concrete and reinforced with a 10mm double hooked deformed re-bar.
The standard LOCK+LOAD panel face is 16” x 32” with a quarried stone finish. Maximum panel thickness is ~4” and weight is ~90 Lb. Panels are made from 5500psi, air entrained, fiber reinforced, concrete and each panel is also reinforced with a corrosion resistant steel (galvanized or stainless steel) connecting hoop for attachment to the counterfort.
Half Width Panels
Half width panels, 16″ x 16″, are available to facilitate radius’ and other geometric constraints. Half panels are made and reinforced in the same manner as the LOCK+LOAD full panels.
Both Left and Right corner panels are available to facilitate creation of strong attractive ninety degree “outside” corners in LOCK+LOAD walls. The long side of each respective corner measures 32” & the short side 16” on the inside of the components. Corner pieces weigh `150 Lb each and are made from the same material as the other components with extra steel reinforcement.
LOCK+LOAD walls do not structurally require “capstones” as do many masonry block walls but many times are desired for architectural reasons. Therefore, an architectural trim piece have the same finish as the panel face is available. The trim measures 28” x 12” x 4” and weighs ~100lbs.
Landscape Panel & Counterfort
The newest LOCK+LOAD component is the plantable or “landscape” panel. By rotating the wall panel outward by 30 degrees it possible to create a ~6” wide planting area while still building a vertical face retaining wall. This is particularly useful for tall walls in architecturally sensitive areas.
