SureWall has limitless configurations with three post types across multiple post sizes.
Easy Installation Steps
Plan and measure the length and height of the wall. Mark and dig post holes. Using a string line to ensure the retaining wall is straight and level, concrete the posts into the ground ensuring the required height is achieved (taking into account the first rail being embedded 50mm into the ground) and that the posts line up and are vertical. If the retaining wall steps down at any point ensure it steps down at the same height as your rails.
Slot in timber rails, ensuring the first sleeper is embedded 50mm into the ground. Prior to back filling, suitable drainage is recommended, i.e. slotted drainage pipe with FilterSleeve™ laid in a trench of drainage metal, additionally the drainage metal can be wrapped in a DuraForce™ or FilterPlus™ geotextile.
Frequently Asked Questions
SureWall is a retaining wall system that uses steel posts and timber rails to generate an aesthetically pleasing, flush finished, non-obtrusive retaining wall system that is very quick and easy to install by any able-bodied DIY person. This innovative system also has significant labour savings due to minimum excavation.
The posts are 65mm wide and a 50mm sleeper is the best fit. This is so there is some room to move as the timber shrinks and swells.
This is all dependant on your DIY project as well as the weight that is behind the wall. If a larger retaining wall is being built, then it is recommended to use more posts and less sleeper spacing to spread the weight on the wall structure. As an indication 1200mm is quite a common length.
- When installing SureWall, concrete one post at a time adding sleepers as you go to ensure a straight wall
- For a different look, add a layer of timber capping to the top of the wall – it makes for great seating too
- Designed with 15° tolerance, so you can create ‘curved’ walls at special angles
