Concrete Retaining Wall - Crib Wall
A CONCRETE CRIB WALL is an assemblage of individual concrete members of particular standard sizes. These walls are generally used for lower backfill heights, in areas where horizontal space is limited, and where foundation excavations are more difficult. These walls can be constructed at multiple heights along any cross-section. The strong interlocking feature between individual crib members provides good stability to the overall structure. The positive drainage of water from the backfill material through the gaps between members alleviates the need for a separate drainage system. Minimum construction time, cost-effectiveness and less embedment depth make this type of wall popular for many different applications.
