Following an initial supply of 260 Alfablocs in 2015 to Tippers ‘R’ Us of Kesgrave, near Ipswich, for use as retaining walls at a new recycling centre, Poundfield Products has now delivered a further 217 of the 3.05m-high reinforced concrete units.
They are providing extra large bays for the storage of crushed materials and recycled stone and sands now that a large wash plant has been commissioned on-site.
Poundfield’s retaining wall system is designed to be freestanding in most cases and is available in heights from 1.22-6m. Individual units are usually bolted together using galvanised metal plates, which help to spread horizontal loads and prevent material transfer when loaded on both sides.
Tippers ‘R’ Us managing director Guy Nicholls said: “We like Alfablocs because we are able to use them freestanding, which makes them easy to move around if we need to reconfigure our storage bays and ensure the best possible use of the space available. We also appreciate their professional look.”
In addition to the 3.05m Alfablocs, Poundfield has also supplied 16 of its 1.22m versions to form sand bays alongside the new wash plant.
