Allan Block®

The Allan Block® success began three decades ago with the introduction of their patented segmental retaining wall product – The Original Allan Block.

The success story continues with the development of creative and innovative construction products, aiming to revolutionise the way the world builds.

The Allan Block stacks beautifully and creates a smooth and fluid finish for every wall, bringing a refined look of classic natural beauty to any landscape. It is easy to install, durable, cost-effective and, best of all, it looks great.

Expect high performance with the first-ever segmental retaining wall system that has conducted full-scale seismic testing.
