The MaxumStone Cantilevered retaining wall is made from an internal stem of vertical and horizontal steel-reinforced, cast-in-place concrete on a reinforced concrete footing.
The large vertical and horizontal hollow cores of the MaxumStone units provide a great form for the steel and concrete and make installation easy and cost effective. The reinforced footings can toe forward of the wall reducing excavation or allow for the walls to be built near the property line. Concrete reinforced MaxumStone structures can also be used to bear bridge structures or buildings or barriers.
MaxumStone gravity retaining wall extenders also reduce the amount of concrete required compared to competitive solid gravity-wall. Because of the unique hollow core design and the large spaces between extenders side by side It also reduces the amount of production and transportation costs.
MaxumStone concrete mass extenders are available in lengths of 2 and 4 feet and when chained together, the system can create extenders up to 12 feet or greater. A free-draining material (such as a #57 Stone) is placed in the MaxumStone and around each extender units for the entire wall project.
MaxumStone retaining wall is available in setbacks of 4.5, 2.4 and 0 degrees (near vertical), and in a variety of beautiful faces. Please check with your local producer for the setbacks and faces available in your region.

The MaxumStone system has a powerful and easy to use design engineering software that is free to all users. The software not only checks for wall overturning, bearing capacity, and sliding, it also provides global stability, seismic loading, in water conditions and many more analysis that are critical to a comprehensive final design.
