Typically, the C channel is positioned at the end of the retaining wall, whereas the H channel serves as a double C channel, connecting two segments of sleepers. Additionally, you can find 45 and 90-degree channels for specific requirements.
In most cases, unless otherwise specified by an engineer, the post should be buried to match the height of the wall (50% in 50% out). For instance, a 600mm high wall requires 600mm of steel in the ground. Therefore, the ideal steel length should be 1200mm.
Certainly, you can build your own retaining wall, however before proceeding, it’s essential to check with your local council about any regulations specific to your area. Also conduct thorough research to ensure your retaining wall meets all necessary requirements and building codes for a successful and compliant project. A safe retaining wall is essential, so ensure all requirements are met.
The cost of a retaining wall varies depending on its size and specifications. For a detailed estimate, feel free to get in touch with us, and we’d be delighted to share installer details who can provide you with a comprehensive quote for the complete installation, tailored to your specific requirements.
Due to their weight, installing concrete sleepers can be challenging. However, Concrete Sleepers offers solutions to ease the installation process, like Grab hire services available at a reasonable daily rate to assist you with the heavy lifting.
Yes, in NSW retaining walls above 600mm in height typically require council approval. This is because such walls can pose safety risks to people and the environment if not constructed properly. To ensure the wall’s safety and compliance, it’s essential to have it designed and approved by professionals, which may involve engaging a structural engineer. To obtain council approval, you’ll need to lodge a building application and have qualified professionals draw up plans for review and approval. If you’re unsure about the approval process, it’s best to seek assistance from experts to ensure a smooth and compliant construction.
In New South Wales, retaining walls that are over 600mm in height or closer than 1 metre to a boundary may require a building permit. As the landowner, it is your responsibility to obtain this permit and ensure that the person overseeing the construction has a copy of the approval. Failure to obtain a building permit can result in enforcement notices, requiring you to comply with building requirements, which could include the removal or demolition of the structure. Non-compliance with the Building Act is a serious matter, and illegal building work may lead to legal action, with the landowner being summoned to the appropriate court. Instances of unauthorised construction may also be reported to the “”Municipal Building Surveyor.”” To avoid these issues, it’s crucial to seek proper council approval before proceeding with your retaining wall project in NSW.
Concrete sleepers offer numerous advantages compared to their timber counterparts. With a wide variety of designs and colours available, you can even find concrete sleepers that resemble timber, like ‘The Malibu’ Woodgrain Textured Concrete Sleeper. Unlike timber sleepers, concrete sleepers won’t warp, twist, or rot, and are not susceptible to termite damage.
Though concrete sleepers may have a higher initial cost, they prove to be a cost-effective option in the long run, especially for taller walls, as they provide superior strength and durability. Choosing concrete sleepers means you won’t have to worry about replacing the retaining wall in the future, saving you time and money compared to building a timber sleeper wall that might need replacement at some point.
For safety and engineering reasons, each sleeper has a maximum height for retaining walls. If you have any inquiries, feel free to contact the Concrete Sleepers office during trading hours at 0406 424 749.
