Criblock Retaining Walls
Type of Criblock Retaining Walls
Criblock retaining walls are a gravity type retaining wall that uses cells created by timber, pre-cast concrete or plastic framing. The cells are filled with stone to give the mass for structural stability. Criblock is not dependant on tie-back or geo grid systems for wall stability. This greatly reduces earth works
Criblock retaining walls allow water to escape from the retained material through the open grid pattern of the structure. This stops any build up of hydrostatic pressure building up behind the wall that can cause failure.
Criblock retaining walls cells can be constructed from a number of materials including:
- Pre-cast Concrete
The selection of the material is dependent on the budget and design life span of the wall.
We can advise you on the best material and manufacture from your project brief.
Criblock retaining walls are an economical solution for many projects. Having said that we can give you a full analysis of the best type of retaining wall from your enquiry.
Contact us and let’s see how we can value engineer your project using the best solution.
Timber Criblock or Timbalok is a gravity retaining wall using timber cells to form the crib. The cells are filled with self draining stone as the mass for the wall. The system is made up of purpose designed interlocking timber sections. Wall can be constructed up to 10m high. The timber is sourced in the EU from protected sustainable forests.
All timber sections are pressure treated with tanalith that gives it a guaranteed life of 60 years.

Concrete criblock or Kriblok is a gravity retaining wall system using reinforced concrete cribs filled with free draining stone to give it mass.
Kriblok gravity retaining walls deliver rapid construction of stable, attractive earth retention projects without the need for mortar or special fixings.
The Kriblok system is available in a range of component sizes, to ensure cost effective solutions for a wide range of situations. Each range consists of only two basic components, a header unit and a stretcher unit, with header units available in a choice of length. This together with the fact that the system can be erected to form concave or convex radii as well as internal or external corners using standard components, simplifies both design and specification procedures. Our concrete batching plant ensures your panels are manufactured to the highest standard.

Reinforced Earth Wall Design Service
The design of a retaining wall requires knowledge of the retaining material, the water table, the ground bearing capacity and any site constraints. The design requires a ground investigation and a structural engineer to ensure the design is fit for purpose.
We offer a full design service from carrying out the ground investigation to final working drawings. Complete our contact form or call us on 07896 246 224 and we will support you and your project.
