How come I cannot find any of the mininum radius information for Coventry Wall (EP Henry), Creta (Techo Bloc) or Versa Lok? You would think this information would be important enough to put in writing somewhere! Am I missing something? I know Versa-Lok's is 8', but it is not written anywhere, I just remeber that form a seminar. If anybody knows the minimum radius for 6" Creta, and Coventry please post it.

Thanks,
Dan

That information is simply a base toguage the minimum radiuses from.

Keystone Century Wall lists a minimum 16' radius, yet I have gotten it down to 5.5' by using our 20" saw, and incorporating 2 Compac units through the turn that we hit with the meat beater. Interfacing the units allowed us to make pin connections where we needed them at the time.

So, use the posted info, (assuming you find it) as a guide but don't let it be written in the stone. You'll get cooler effects by doing a few things outside the box.

Thanks Bill. I am aware that cutting and spending more time are always an option:) ! I am working on a design and I have a budget number. so I am trying to put in a curved wall to fit that budget. I know how long it takes us to do a wall without all the extra cutting so I was trying to price it that way. I am just aggravated this stuff isn't in a catalog or spec.

Thank you Shawn. I have that info in my 300 page spec book from Versa-Lok. I just find it very odd these minute :confused: details would not be in bold print somewhere in the general catalog. I will keep looking for the two, thanks!

Dan,

Page E-7, in my Techo-Bloc binder. On page E-9 it shows graphics of structural walls and the radius when using the different sizes of wall stones or combinations.

I'm off for the NJ Flower show, it closes today at 6 pm and I hope we can start the tear-down and finish before noon tomorrow. It's been a really long week.

HELLO D*uche! :clapping: I have no E-7? If I am completely blind and dumb, I will admit it, but I DO NOT SEE this information in the Techo-Spec binder I was given my TB.

You have the same book Chris, can you find it?

Whenever you want to apologize Chris, I will be here to accept it. You can keep digging in your book, you won't find any radius information other than the homeowner garden walls.
