Modular Flood Walls
To answer the national challenge of rising water levels, Marshalls Civils and Drainage offers a range of flexible low cost, high quality solutions based on the innovative Redi-Rock™ interlocking modular wall system.
Concrete has a proven track record of performance in water applications, and the blocks are 100% concrete and not steel-reinforced. As the flood prevention wall blocks are dry laid, they can be easily moved should the situation on the ground change. Stainless steel lifters are available if required.
Whether you are looking to heighten river banks, build new sea walls or construct flood plain defences, Redi-Rock™ offers considerable benefits over alternative solutions, not least an aesthetically pleasing finish that blends perfectly into the local environment. The appearance of natural stone Redi-Rock™ concrete blocks offer high quality solutions for waterways,, shoreline protection, erosion control, riverbanks and sea walls.
The Redi-Rock™ big block system is versatile enough to achieve height without compromising strength and requires less space than traditional methods of construction. The blocks have a profile that interlocks them to each other and due to the mass of the blocks less earth works is required behind the wall and under most circumstances geogrid is not needed.
Each block weighs approximately one tonne and is dry laid. Walls can be built in a fraction of the time and cost compared with other methods. Due to the dome and groove joint – straight or curved walls can be constructed.
