About Lock-Block Ltd.

The launch of the Lock-Block ™ modular system in 1984 revolutionized the retaining wall industry to a point where our product is now the preferred choice for many applications for both permanent and temporary structures as high as 12m (40ft). We began our operation with one thing in mind: the environment. We started out making retaining wall units from left-over concrete to keep it from the landfill and that vision has evolved and grown in the 34 year span of the company. We have developed a method of turning rubble concrete into reusable aggregates for road bases and producing fresh concrete. This process provides for LEED credits and keeps waste material from our landfills. Now, we have the ability to make Lock-Block ™ units with 100% recycled aggregates at any specified compressive strength.

We are about to launch a new Roman Arch style product that has the potential to drastically alter the world-wide construction industry for applications such as bridges, tunnels, highway overpasses, hurricane shelters, wine cellars and countless other uses. Our new system promises to be cheaper, faster to build, and provide a service life-span of many multiples of the current 85 year design life standard that is currently available. (Some Roman arch structures have been in place for 3,000 years).
