Masonry Sound Wall

Masonry Sound Wall

Located in El Dorardo Hills, CA, the Blackstone residential development features approximately 88,000 square feet of Basalite's Proto II Wall System. This unique system was chosen for its ease of construction, aethetics, cost savings and versatility. Proto II was utilized for both retaining and fence wall applications. A patented post-tensioning process allows the Proto II System to be built up to heights of 13'4" on cost-effective footings. This simple engineering solution provides an internal strength that allows walls to flex and withstand extreme forces of wind and seismic loading.
