Mortarless / pinless segmental retaining walls for sloping hillsides.

Straight up genius.

Vertica® goes where other systems fear to tread.

The Anchor® Vertica® system is designed for steep, sloping hillsides and other traditionally difficult installation areas. Vertica® walls can be built to virtually any height in incredibly tight spaces thanks to patented, built-in alignment locators and a near vertical rise for less excavation and land loss.

Typically used with geosynthetic reinforcement, Vertica® blocks meet or exceed industry standards for strength and durability.

Vertica® wall systems can now be specified for machine install – an exclusive first for AG in the UK and Ireland.

Available in a Stone Cut™ finish in a variety of warm earth tone colours.

AG have introduced a Solid Top Block – a double sided block for finishing the final course of a normal Vertica® retaining wall when both sides would be visible.

Vertica® in situ


Anchor® segmental retaining wall blocks are manufactured from locally sourced, high grade aggregates using the latest computerised systems. Durability and performance is assured by meeting or exceeding targets for crushing strength and water absorption.


Vertica® capping blocks are shaped asymmetrically (tapered), making capping straight or curved walls much easier. Installation of the capping block is more efficient as the shape of the capping piece minimises the need for cuts.


Anchor® Vertica®'s unique dry build locking system means no mortar or concrete – permitting fast-track, all weather construction.


Anchor® Vertica® is produced in the UK from locally sourced materials and manufactured with 100% harvested rain water and 100% renewable energy in the production process.
