A ReCon gravity wall constructed in Plymouth, MN was featured more »
The ReCon Channel Block gives designers yet another setback option to choose from when designing ReCon walls. The 8” setback per course (26.6⁰ batter) is ideal for lining drainage channels, but may also be utilized in water front applications where a less vertical face batter may be desired. Integrating the Channel Block into a standard Series 50 Gravity Block may also result in even taller ReCon Gravity Walls.
For gravity wall batters steeper than 15 degrees, Global Stability may control the design and should be checked. For more information about designing ReCon Channel Blocks Walls, contact ReCon at 952-922-0027.
