WHY VERSA-LOK?

VERSA-LOK retaining wall systems are cost-effective, easy to install, and give you unlimited design options.

Our walls are made from high-strength concrete units, dry-stacked, interlocked with pins, and set on granular leveling pads. These mortarless walls do not need frost footings. And when stabilized with geogrid soil reinforcement, VERSA-LOK walls can be built as tall at 50 feet or higher. From intricate landscaping features to tall, commercial walls, VERSA-LOK delivers your best value in segmental retaining wall solutions.

VERSA-LOK’s unique hole-to-slot pinning system provides your walls with an automatic setback, improving stability and making installation a snap. Durable, solid VERSA-LOK units have no voids to fill and can be modified easily on-site to create a variety of special landscaping features.

VERSA-LOK Advantages:

  • Great Looking Options
    VERSA-LOK units let you choose from among texture, color and scale options. The faces of the units are available in traditional textured split-face and the natural, Weathered look. Many color options, solid and blended, also are available. Contact your local producer for texture and color availability in your area. And our unique hole-to-slot pinning system eliminates the unsightly gaps that some wall systems need to maintain a consistent half bond.
  • Design Flexibility
    VERSA-LOK solid units are a creative landscape designer’s best friend. Because they can be modified on site, the units can accommodate virtually any desired layout, including curves with large and small radii and inside and outside corners of almost any angle. Our solid units can also make a seemingly endless array of special features, including stairs, freestanding walls, columns, seat walls, and planters—without the need for special units. 
  • Easy Installation
    VERSA-LOK’s unique top-pinning system makes it easy to place and interlock the units. The hole-to-slot pinning system allows installers to vary the bond, so that that they are not required maintain a strict half-bond between courses. And special features can be built with no need for special units. All VERSA-LOK retaining wall units install simply and easily accommodate geogrid.
  • Cost-effective
    VERSA-LOK segmental retaining walls cost significantly less than traditional walls, such as cast in place, big precast blocks, mortared masonry, or natural stone walls. Our fast, easy installation makes the total cost of VERSA-LOK walls, including labor, extremely competitive. VERSA-LOK walls also save money because they do not need structural footings below frost.
  • Environmentally Friendly
    VERSA-LOK concrete units do not create any environmental hazards, unlike some chemically-treated products. VERSA-LOK units are made locally and are shipped only short distances. Concrete is a sustainable material preferred by architects, designers, engineers and other design professionals. The National Concrete Masonry Association has more information on sustainable building using concrete masonry.
  • Stable and Durable
    High-strength, solid concrete VERSA-LOK units offer superior resistance to damage before, during and after construction. The setback between wall courses ensures walls lean back into the soil, improving stability. With proper geogrid soil reinforcement, VERSA-LOK walls are stable to heights of 50 feet or more.
  • Freeze/Thaw Resistant
    VERSA-LOK units are placed on granular leveling pads and are dry-stacked without mortar. Because VERSA-LOK units can move slightly in relation to each other, VERSA-LOK walls readily tolerate freeze/thaw cycle movements without damage and so do not need structural footings below frost.
  • Free-Draining Face
    Because VERSA-LOK walls are built without mortar, water can pass through the wall joints to reduce hydrostatic pressure behind walls.
