Product Information

The Messina retaining wall system is the second product in the evolving Verona Collection by RidgeRock. Introduced in 2012, Messina provides the same Old World elegant look of its Belgado predecessor while incorporating the overwhelmingly popular features of our RidgeRock II product line.

The Messina retaining wall system also incorporates the patented Flexible Wing Positioning System (FWPS). The Flexible Wing Positioning System is the latest advancement in the RidgeRock family of products. Coupled with the integrated shear key the positioning wings located on either side of the Messina units, provide additional shear resistance with the shear key of the course above. The Flexible Wing Positioning System also provides the flexibility to create curved walls with ease without unit modifications.

Applications

  • Commercial & Retail Centers – Our retaining walls increase usable space, adding valuable parking and building footage to your development.
  • Apartments, Condominiums, & Multi-Family Housing – Severe space constraints and space consuming grade changes are eliminated by the use of our retaining wall systems.
  • Highway & Transportation Systems – Our retaining walls minimize transportation right-of-way acquisition and provide economical and aesthetically-pleasing bridge abutments and wing walls.
  • Homes – Landscaping areas are enhanced and property constraints are minimized by the use of our retaining wall systems.

Compatibility

The Multi-size rustic appearance of the Messina system is based on the use of four distinct retaining wall units. Each unit provides 2 differing unit sizes in the wall which results in a random multi-unit finished wall like no other system on the market today. The integral shear key of the Messina wall system provides positive block-to-block shear. The shear key is integrated into the block so the need for often omitted pins and clips is eliminated.
