About Kelley Blocks
Some things you might not know about Kelley Blocks
No Footing Neccesary
Kelley Blocks do not necessarily require a footing. They may be set on firm ground, though they may need to be “keyed” into the ground. A footing may be required in large walls, depending on the type and condition of the soil, the specific wall size, and what type of soil the wall is retaining. In many cases, walls may be set in firm bedding. Providing a finished product that is structurally sound while alleviating the need for forms.
Designed for Easy Handeling
Standard Kelley Blocks are designed for staggered 90-degree corners, with 45-degree blocks available as well. Angled blocks can be ordered with finish facing applied either on the inside or outside of the corner. With our round blocks, we have the ability to do any curve that is desired. We can customize for your job specific needs. Kelley Blocks are designed to allow easy handling with a forklift.
Tie Back Feature
Another key feature of Kelley Blocks is our tie back system. A cast recess in the shape of a “T” supports an optional bracket that fits flush into the top of the block. This allows the wall to be continually built, leaving a convenient and solid support embedded in the finished wall which can be attached to the deadman (anchor), or soil anchor, at any time. Additionally Kelley Blocks can be used with geo-grids to provide more flexibility in designing your project.
Our standard concrete blocks measure 4′ x 2′ x2′, consisting of nearly one half yard of concrete and weighing approximately 2000 pounds. Two grout tubes extend down through the block allowing access for structural concrete and steel reinforcement, if necessary for your project. Each grout tube is 8″ square, and spaced one foot in from each side of the block and two feet on center. As the blocks are stacked, grout tubes line up to form a column casing, an excellent receptacle for a fence or railing post.
