TERRAFORCE is a well-known and award-winning Cape Town-based company that offers interlocking concrete blocks (earth-retaining blocks) for environmentally friendly landscape retaining walls and erosion control. Is a member of the Concrete Manufacturers Association (CMA) and a Level Four BBBEE Contributor.
Terraforce pioneered the hollow, reversible interlocking concrete block that is unmatched in its versatility, both in application and elevation. Suitable for commercial and residential landscape retaining walls, small or large.
The wide range of plantable retaining wall blocks is tailored to create environmentally friendly domestic or industrial installations and to support sustainable development in soil stabilisation. Walls can range from light gravity retaining walls to geogrid reinforced earth-retaining or heavy gravity, double skin walls.
Terraforce blocks adhere to local and international standards having undergone extensive laboratory testing – based on SANS 207, BS 8006 and ASTM-D6916-18 – by professional accreditation agencies over the last 4 decades. In addition, licensed manufacturers must adhere to strict minimum specification and regular compressive strength tests as set out by Terraforce Head office, ensuring that the end user is supplied a quality product.
