Cellular lightweight concrete produced with the Aerix family of foam liquid concentrates is an ideal alternative for backfill behind retaining walls. Placing cellular concrete behind a retaining wall will reduce the lateral load on the wall compared to alternative backfill materials. The ease of placement of this fluid material will increase lift heights and reduce schedule impacts. The backfill can be engineered for desired permeability, the cellular concrete can be produced with our AERLITE
family of products or our AQUAERiX
product which will produce a permeable cellular concrete that can allow for water to pass through the backfill behind the wall when the application requires drainage. The reduction of lateral loads and placement heights allow for the design engineers to be more aggressive while maintaining a satisfactory factor of safety.
