Redi-Rock Retaining Walls
Why Redi-Rock Retaining Walls?
Massive, one-ton Redi-Rock blocks allow tall gravity retaining walls to be built without geogrid or tiebacks in many applications. Robust engineering and easy installation make Redi-Rock a great choice for residential projects, road and bridge projects, storm water projects, industrial developments, and more! Redi-Rock walls are installed like giant Lego blocks, making them fast and easy to build. At South Okanagan Concrete Products, we manufacture the newest and most eye appealing block face, the Ledgestone series. We can deliver to your site anywhere in the Okanagan, Interior British Columbia and beyond.
Redi-Rock is not just about functionality. It is also about eye appeal. We offer a complete coordinated product line including: Retaining walls Freestanding walls, Columns, Steps and Caps to give your project a complete solution!
The Gravity System:
The Redi-Rock Gravity System has the ability to build tall walls without requiring geogrid or tiebacks in many applications. This makes it possible to build close to property lines and existing infrastructure, minimizing excavation and installation costs. Each 41” gravity block weighs 2,351 lbs. Redi-Rock blocks utilize a knob and groove technology, which means that the entire retaining wall structure is interlocked.
The Gravity System also includes a variety of block sizes and setbacks to meet the needs of the many complex projects—including storm channels, highway projects, residential homes, developments, and more. Learn more about the Gravity System here.
The Reinforced Positive Connection (PC) System:
Today, Redi-Rock is proud to offer not only a gravity retaining wall system, but also an unparalleled geosynthetic reinforced system—the Positive Connection (PC) System. The heart and soul of the PC System is its superior connection strength. Unlike friction connections featured in other geosynthetic reinforced wall systems, there is virtually no chance of a pullout connection failure with the PC System because the grid wraps through the block.
The resulting connection does not have a weight dependent (friction) component, so it provides as much strength at the top of the wall as at the bottom. Also, unlike many other wall systems, there are no extra parts such as clips, bars, or mechanical fasteners required to assemble the connection. Each PC System block weighs 1,540 lbs.

Redi-Rock Freestanding blocks are textured on both sides, giving above-grade walls an unbeatable finished look. Freestanding walls look great standing alone, but they can also integrate with Redi-Rock retaining walls, Columns and Caps to create beautiful privacy walls, guard rails, force protection walls, seat walls, garden/planter walls, and more. Each Freestanding block weighs 1527 lbs. Learn more about Redi-Rock Freestanding walls here!
Columns are a great way to finish off a project and can be used as stand-alone structures, at the top of a retaining wall, in conjunction with fencing, or in many other ways! Each Column block weighs 725 lbs, as much as a Grizzly bear—which means your Columns will stay put. Learn more about Redi-Rock Columns here!
Steps and Caps:
Redi-Rock Steps and Caps are a great addition to Redi-Rock projects. Redi-Rock Step blocks are massive, stone-textured blocks that have consistent dimensions which make them easy to walk on. These blocks can be used to create straight or curving staircases that integrate beautifully with Redi-Rock walls and Columns. The 4-sided Step/Cap block weighs in at 688 lbs., as much as two sumo wrestlers! With such a massive size, Redi-Rock Step/Cap blocks will stay exactly where you put them. These blocks are a great solution for finishing retaining walls and also make a great finish for seat walls. Learn more about Redi-Rock Steps and Caps here!
