    I am hoping it is atleast 7 feet since i am designing a job with it!

    I think paver pete said they built one 27 feet tall in maryland with it. I remember him saying the monument block wall at the new PA plant wat 1 foot taller then a quarry stone wall that was the tallest tech wall ever built.

    i don't think it is 7'? i am asking without a geo grid how high you can go. i know that coventry wall is 33", but i try not to go more than 2' with out it.

    I didn't see that you said UNreiforced. I wouldn't go over 24".

    Per the 2006 Techo Spec book:

    Max Height Inclined - 3'
    Max Height Straight - 30"

    This is for both 100 mm & 200 mm

    Thanks Chris. I stopped at my techo dist. for the spec book, but they didn't have any in. the wall i am bidding is going to be 3' at the highest. i am thinking that i will put grid in it just trying to figure out how many layers.

    What are you guys paying for quarry stone this year. My dist. selling for $13.56 which i though was pretty good. i still am only paying $13 for covnerty single sided though.

    I am paying 13.xx for quarry. Which i think is resonable. Another tech dealer in my area wanted almost 18 for it!
