Millenia Wall Solutions

I'm just wandering what you guys think about this system? Did anyone ever use it/installed it?? Do you think it'll work fine or will concrete walls prevail?!

The video is cool

Your right, some of the photos do look photoshopped, but the video of the installation sure looks sweet.

I have installed a wall with this product and have seen contractors work with this product and it has performed very well. The wall I installed went in faster, straighter and was more stable, due to the interlocking features. It seems worth giving a try.

scapepro,
Does the product look fake? I'm concerned about the look and if it will look like plastic "lego" type of thing. I would give it a try, it just doesn't seem like the type of product I could see myself installing because it isn't stone/concrete.

musclecarboy,

The product actually looks better than concrete. The product is imaged from cut stone and therefore has the lines and relief of quarried stone. The product also is coated with a custom coating to get rid of that fake plastic look and give it a stone feel. I know that Wal-Mart construction crews just put in a wall in North Carolina at one of their new store constructions using this product. I saw pictures of that wall and it looked pretty good.

Hmm sounds like an interesting product. I would like to see a block or see an install before I'd consider using it.

i ordered a brochure from them. the big thing about them is they are so light. one guy can carry several at a time. how is the pricing though, the same as concrete?
