Double faced wall

One of the most appreciated products of our Landscaping collection is, without a doubt, the Solino double faced wall. After its launch in 2013, it quickly became the most popular retaining wall on the market for many reasons. Firstly, this wall is reversible and can be installed on both sides, with two different textures; on the smooth side for a modern and clean look, or on the textured side for a contemporary and layered result. Therefore, it’s an ideal choice for landscapers looking to create an original landscaping project using only one product. Secondly, the four natural colors available in this wall are the perfect complement to any landscape paver or slab. Use the Solino wall as a flower bed, a waterfall, or a variety of different ways. Play with the different faces for a versatile landscape project. Lastly, the Solino wall uses the K-bloc stabilization system – another innovation by Rinox presented next! In summary, let yourself be inspired by this innovation and by its multiple possibilities to make your landscape project extraordinary!

K-Bloc system

One of the very first innovations by Rinox was the k-bloc system for retaining walls. Initially launched for the Rio retaining wall, now available for the Rio, Solino and Ora wall. Landscapers installing Rinox retaining walls were immediately impressed with the innovation. This tool was specifically conceived to help landscapers achieve a quicker retaining wall installation. It guarantees a straight and effective wall installation, while at the same time making it easier to install walls on an angle. This versatile tool was conceived for the installer and has stood the test of time – still widely used today, more than 10 years later!

Link-a-Loc system

On the other hand, the Link-a-Loc system was specifically (and recently) created for the Monti retaining wall. It’s the most innovative stabilizing system available on the market. During the installation of the Monti wall, the Link-a-Loc is placed behind the wall to ensure stability. It has two separate pieces that are easily linked together during the installation. It allows each Monti piece to link together to become one massive unit, for maximum security, hence the name Link-a-Loc. This innovation guarantees a straight wall for a professional install!

Linea system

After a lot of research and analysis on the decorative stone market, Rinox introduced the Linea system. The Linea system is a spacer system to facilitate the installation of alternative masonry stone like Campagnard, Katalina, Lena, Lorena and Sirenis. This patented innovative manufactures each piece with a spacer directly on the stone, in order to allow a constant width for joints. These spacers were created to eliminate the use of other techniques usually used to conserve the uniformity between the stones; The Linea system does it for the mason automatically. This innovation helps the mason complete a project quicker and with a perfect result… who wouldn’t want to try it?
