Why you should consider building a retaining wall with steel posts

If you are going to build a retaining wall, you want to make sure that all the hard effort and money you put into the project will last. That’s why we recommend building a retaining wall with steel posts that are thick and strong.

Our steel beams are hot dip galvanised, so they won’t deteriorate from rust. While the cheaper price of painted steel beams might be tempting, they can’t stand up to these same high standards. Most retaining wall systems also use thin steel that can bend and warp under pressure.

Our advice? Don’t take the risk! Only use the highest quality steel posts for your job.

The Rule of Thumb for building a retaining wall with steel posts

Remember to follow this general rule when building with steel posts:

“However high you go above the ground with your retaining wall is how far you should go into the ground with your steel beams.”

This makes for a strong footing for your retaining wall. When coupled with concrete, it will withstand a heavy load or pressure from the soil which the wall is retaining.
