Enviro-Block™ Retaining Wall Applications
Enviro-Block™ applications include; retaining walls, seawalls, headwalls,
security walls, Explosion Ordinance Disposal (EOD) walls, Foreign Object Debris (FOD) Walls,
force protection walls, shooting ranges, trench warfare and urban simulation training type facilities.
railroad walls, flood control structures, storm damage mitigation repairs,
material containment bins, bunker bins, bunker walls,
deadmen anchor weights and ballast weights.
inter-Block Retaining Systems Inc. is the licensed manufacturer of the Enviro-Block™, a two ton (4,000lbs) inter-locking, stackable pre-cast concrete block.
Temporary Retaining Walls
Enviro-Block™ is perfect for both permanent and temporary applications. The
installation of this system is very fast and requires a very short learning
curve with a small ground crew and a machine operator.
We are a complete turnkey solution provider from concept to completion, providing
engineering /design and a certified Enviro-Block™ licensed installation contractor.
No job too small or too large.

our knowledge in large concrete block gravity wall projects is unmatched.
Segmental Retaining Walls
Segmental retaining walls are modular block retaining walls used for vertical grade change applications. Our segmental retaining walls are generally designed and constructed as gravity retaining
walls (conventional). The system consists of dry-cast concrete blocks that are placed without mortar (dry stacked) and rely on their keyed interface and mass to resist overturning and sliding.
Block to block interfaces include friction, shear elements, and interlock. The systems may also employ soil reinforcement that extends into the backfill and allows for the construction of walls
with significant height (e.g. in excess of 50 ft (15.24 m)) that could not be accomplished with the blocks alone.
Segmental Retaining Wall Gravity Blocks
Segmental retaining walls are considered flexible structures. SRW blocks are manufactured in conformance with industry standards and specifications to assure that units delivered to a project
are uniform in weight, dimensional tolerances, strength, and durability—features not necessarily provided in site cast materials.
