We are excited to announce that we have expanded our ICC-ES ESR#3073 report to include our smaller Verdura® 30 blocks and the Posi-Dura® reinforcement.

ICC-ES thoroughly examined our product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods and other factors to ensure the product is code-compliant. “Along with an ICC approval, our pre-engineered free Standard Design Report for the Verdura® 30 and Posi-Dura® system helps designers and contractors obtain permits and build the Verdura® retaining wall system with ease.”, says Darien Osborne, PE, Director of Preconstruction.
