[SEAOC] Re: [SEAOC] retaining walls

Block gravity wall systems by contacting Ronald Grunow, P.E. at (619) 
729-0150.  This wall system is calculated using coulombs theory and 
would be at a maximum when 9 ft. to 12 ft. high.  For high walls they 
use a tie back fabric material.
    A system similar to Slope Block is Helfinker but I do not have a 
contact for this system.
    Another system to consider would be Evergreen by Quikset which is a 
bin wall system which works well for high walls but is constructed with 
large integral units which require a crane to install.  Contact Jim 
Pontack at (714) 250-8700 for this wall system.
