Retaining wall steel moulds
Retaining walls usage
Retaining walls are widely used to hold soil and other fill material in the required position.
Reinforced detached concrete retaining walls, installed on a natural bed on the territory of the enterprise or sea port, are used for the construction of fill material storage facilities.
In industrial engineering retaining walls are used to fence platforms on varied levels and to make ditch cuts and earth fills when constructing railways and motrways.
Hydro-technical utilities made of retaining walls form shipway and fishway tunnels, quays adjoining shoreline with streambed in access channels.

Retaining walls production
Retaining walls are designed in compliance with the requirements of the works as well as transportation convenience and installation at least costs are taken into consideration. “M-Konstruktor” retaining wall steel moulds meet all the requirements enabling the production of retaining wall elements on or near the construction site.
Reinforcement shape and size and concrete brand requirements depend on the purpose of the construction site. For example, heavy-weight concrete brands are used for retaining walls of 1,2-1,8 m for holding fill material, while for the construction of hydro-technical utilities concrete that is appropriate in an environment with aggressive severity of exposure to reinforced concrete constructions is used.
The steel mould is placed on a tilting table and is treated with a special composition which prevents concrete from sticking. The reinforcement is laid. Concrete mixture is poured into the mould. The concrete mixture is consolidated by vibration of a tilting table and tremblers, which are provided with special platforms.
When concrete gets its stripping strength, the locks are opened and upper parts of the mould are removed. As a matter of convenience mould skirtings are tipped over. The final product is taken out.
Reinforced concrete retaining walls are large heavy products. To produce retaining walls of adequate quality the steel moulds must have strength reserve, smooth surface and be easy to use.
“M-Konstruktor” has all the necessary resources to fulfil its liability when carrying out most large-scale projects. Our plant designs and produces steel moulds of highest quality for all types of reinforced retaining walls:
- bin-type (with or without a bottom);
- cantilever built in sections.
Cost of production and delivery
Delivery is available throughout the territory of European Union and Eurasian Union countries and other countries. Shipment is available in different ways: by railroad, by heavy trucks, by sea.
