The massive size of VERSA-LOK Brute—240 pounds and 1-1/3 square feet face area—makes it the ideal solid solution for unreinforced walls to 8 feet; limited-access sites; sites where extensive excavation isn’t possible or practical; vertical retaining walls; walls subject to impact; or shoreline applications. Brute is installed mechanically in pairs using a special clamp attached to a backhoe or other lifting device and employs VERSA-LOK’s top-pinning design for quick unit alignment and construction versatility.
