Unprecedented

Engineering Efficiency

Why FORIX?

  • Installation efficiency
  • Ability to work in tight sites
  • Custom aesthetics
  • 1/3 to 1/2 the weight of the leading big block system (less material, up to 2/3 more square footage on truck for shipping, smaller equipment – mini-excavator to install)
  • On-site soils can be used at the design engineer’s discretion

Forix® precast modular wall system provides innovative engineering and performance. This system involves large precast bleocks that bring efficiency to the construction of a wall with its economical weight when compared to others in the market.


Installation with this block is very fast. Easy to handle and place block. Love it.

THE DESIGN

Forix has rear legs with triangular geometry to create an arching effect. The backfill places a downward pressure onto the units. The system is capable of a turning radii with the option of a 90 degree corner unit. Lugs on the bottom of the units allow for automatic vertical alignment control. Other features include free draining with stone infill and ability to design and construct Forix walls in less time than market competitors.

AESTHETICS

The rubber textured liners used in the production of the Forix cast units produce a deep 5.5” reveal. Various face styles (eight for the Bouldercrest style), when stacked randomly, provide a mixture of stone sizes to emulate a natural stone stacked retaining wall.

Other customization of face styles available.
