Decorton proudly represents and installs Loffelstein blocks, most often for industrial clients These retaining blocks are unique, due to their adaptability and plantability and are used for the construction of retaining walls that are between 3-8m in height. The blocks’ unique design and thickened base prevents it from being crushed under the mass of the completed wall. It is also the only block that exceeds 20mpa strength when manufactured, most other blocks are only 12mpa in strength.

During the installation of Loffelstein retaining walls, care should be taken during the construction of its foundation. Each foundation must be designed and laid in accordance with the specific project, but in most cases a concrete foundation should suffice. Since our team has years’ of experience in the installation of these retaining walls, clients can rest assured that we will install the correct foundation to minimise any possible structural movements or maintenance.

These walls are plantable, and it is recommended that indigenous ground covers are planted into the block cavities once the project is completed. Not only will plant growth leave the wall looking more appealing, but it can also aid in the long-term stability of the structure.
