Economical, strong and versatile cellular bin-type retaining wall or abutment system.

AIL’s Bolt-A-Bin System is a metal bin-type of retaining wall system available in a variety of bin sizes for both vertical and battered applications.

Easy, quick assembly.

Assembly can be done quickly with no pile driving or concrete pouring, making it well-suited for use in remote areas. Bolt-A-Bin cells are formed from strong, corrugated metal components bolted together at the job site and then filled with granular material. The fill material and the metal shell act as a gravity retaining wall to resist surcharged loading, sliding and overturning of the earth behind the wall.

Benefits

  • Lightweight, easy to install and ideal for remote areas
  • Galvanized and Aluminized Type 2 steel construction
  • Size range of 1.2 m (4') to 8.5 m (28') in height, in 3 m (9'8") increments in length
  • Full design and engineering support

Applications

  • Retaining Walls
  • Headwalls and Wingwalls
  • Bridge Abutments

Strong, durable and cost-effective

Bolt-A-Bin is well-suited for use in remote areas because it assembles quickly without pile driving or concrete pouring.
