Walls in excess of allowable gravity wall heights can be built using geosynthetic reinforcement or the Anchorplex system when designed by a qualified engineer.
Integral handholds make it easy to place and to lift when repositioning. The hollows on the bottom surface help seat the block into base aggregates for better leveling, and no core-fill is needed.
The Torpedo base blocks are shaped to fit together to hold their position as they are placed. Ready to use, there are no lips to remove or pins to place. The blocks level and install quickly, are very maneuverable and can be used for curves, corners, columns and straight walls.
Unique features of the Torpedo base block are the locator marks on the convex end. When the center locator on that end is lined up with the locator on the concave end of the next unit, the blocks are straight. If the first notch to the right or left is used, the blocks make an 8-foot radius. The next notch in either direction indicates a 4-foot radius.
