Question: Is there an alternative to Gabion Basket Walls?

Gone are the days when housebuilders could only choose between gabion basket walls or a labour intensive block and render approach.

Time to try Tobermore’s Secura Grand

In a housing market where sites increasing offer challenges in terms of contours and levels, Tobermore’s Award Winning Secura Grand is an innovative pre-finished retaining wall solution which offers housebuilders a highly efficient and attractive alternative to traditional retaining wall options.

Available in three vibrant long-lasting colours, Secura Grand is built using a simple, mortar-free, dry method. Once the area behind the planed wall has been excavated, only a concrete foundation is required, and no wet trades are involved in the construction of the wall.  There is no mortar drying times to delay installation, meaning that constant progress can be achieved. Secura retaining walls therefore require less skilled trades, saving time and money on this element of a project.

Secura Grand blocks are manufactured on a single site, with higher stock levels than the industry average, and are ready to be delivered to housebuilders in full and on time, with minimal lead times.
