The Alfabloc® is a very structurally efficient and versatile concept in pre-cast retaining wall design. In the majority of working conditions the Alfabloc® units are lowly stressed and provide a robust retaining structure. With granular materials, which generally provide the most onerous loadings, the Alfabloc® unit has additional stability generated by the frictional force down the face of the wall.
The foundation for the Alfabloc® system is usually the new or existing concrete hard standing onto which stored materials will be contained. The loads imposed by the Alfabloc® units are usually no more than the wheel loads imposed by the mechanical plant utilised to move the stored material. Depending on the nature of the stored material the units can be either placed onto the concrete hard standing or bolted into place. To assist in the spread of load horizontally the units are normally fixed together with a steel plate, which also provides a seal to the joints.

Poundfield Products have introduced a new innovative product to their Alfabloc® Walling range.
The Mini Alfabloc® is shorter and wider than the conventional Alfa, but still retains all the features that make the Alfabloc® range a unique walling system capable of fulfiling a large variety of storage applications.
It can also retain soil to its full height without being ground fixed.
The new Mini Alfabloc® is even more flexible and allows storage of smaller quantities of material without the expense of the larger Alfabloc®.
