Olympia® Retaining Wall Systems
One Block, Endless PatternsTM
Tensar’s new Olympia Retaining Wall System is based around a single block that can be set horizontally and vertically in order to create endless pattern options. This allows designers to create ashlar patterns, pilasters, stacked-bond borders, or virtually any other pattern with just one block.
Olympia allows the designer freedom in selecting stacking and bond patterns. Multiple colors allow rich aesthetics without the need for custom-sized small or vertical blocks. Units are locally available in a wide variety of colors, textures and facing options. Unlike other segmental retaining wall (SRW) systems, Olympia Walls incorporate a positive, mechanical connection between the wall face and the Tensar Geogrid, reinforcement providing unsurpassed structural integrity. It’s this positive, mechanical connection that greatly minimizes the chance of wall failure, even under the most severe conditions.
Each Olympa block weighs in at @ 65 lbs. per 0.89 SF block, making it is one of the lightest blocks per SF on the market. Lighter weight means less concrete to make, ship, and place.
