Design considerations of Cantilever Masonry Walls

Cantilever walls are a common solution used to retain soil or similar earth material, playing a vital role in sustaining the structural integrity of a site and or project. While the design is important, several practical factors must be considered when designing a retaining wall using a cantilever block system.

Design considerations for a cantilever wall are important with calculations of the pressures exerted at any point of a wall being influenced by various factors. The height of the water table, the nature and type of soil, the subsoil water movements, type of wall being constructed and the materials used in the construction of the wall, can all have an impact on the stability of a structure.

Inadequate design and consideration of such factors can result in the failure of a wall system either immediately or after some time. Such failures can include a wall moving into a sloping position, a wall exhibiting a curve on its surface, a crack appearing or the complete wall collapsing. It is recommended to have a builder or engineer advise on the correct methods of preparation and installation.

At Baines Masonry, our cantilever block systems deliver the structural integrity required to secure a project while providing an aesthetically pleasing design to suit any style. With a range of supplementary SRW products available, including geofabrics and other soil containing solutions, we provide a ‘one-stop-shop solution’ for your retaining wall needs.
