1 TENAX T-BLOCK RETAINING WALL SYSTEM GEOGRID REINFORCED SEGMENTAL BLOCK WALLS By: G and E Co. Ltd May 2008

2 The T-Block Reinforced Wall

3 What is TENAX T-Block System? The construction of mechanical stabilized wall with a Tenax patented connector between HDPE geogrids and segmental concrete blocks. The connectors are locked into the geogrids which are wedged between two layers of blocks to maintain wall stability. This mechanical connection allows the system to utilize optimum full long term strength of the geogrids in the design. As the geogrids are interlocked level between blocks, wall rotation would not occur as in some other systems do.

4 The T-Block Schematic

5 The T-Block Concrete Unit A modular precast concrete block facing unit, a polymeric T-clip connector and layers of TENAX TT SAMP geogrid reinforcement. Tongue and Groove Connection Precast Concrete Block Facing Unit

6 The T-Block Connection T-clip and Geogrid T-clip T-clip slot into geogrid

7 The T-Block System Soil - Geogrid – T-clip – Block T-Clip connector provides effective mechanical connection with the geogrid and the concrete block units to form a totally integrated system

8 Benefits of the T-Block System Fast and easy to construct Large cost savings over traditional reinforced concrete structures Design fully complied to Geoguide 6 No piling and heavy foundation Possibility of using existing backfill Area behind wall can be trafficked immediately Variety of facing aesthetics to suit client needs Easy conformity to any alignment & profile Minimize energy, concrete and steel reinforcement

9 Some Examples – Major Roads Dubai – design for the landscaping structures on major road projects South, Korea – Chunsugyo-Saebeari Highway: Segmental Retaining Wall System

10 Some Examples - Walls Ireland – The T-Block System optimizes the cost and space availability within site boundary constraints Seoul, Korea – This wall shows the flexibility of the T-Block System that maximizes the use of a small, busy urban area, and yet, with ample parking facilities and aesthetically pleasing recreational areas

11 Rich Architectural Finish 1.Split faced block 2.Triple split faced block 3.Smooth faced block 4.Dry stone faced triple block 5.Trapezoidal flute block 6.Resoil block

12 Versatile Styles and Colors Available in a wide range of face styles and colors Walls of the interchange were built with blocks designed and produced locally
