How to Design a Fence/Railing Above a Retaining Wall.

Depending on the application and location of the fence/rail, it may affect the retaining wall design with forces at the top of the wall that could cause it to roll over (overturning). Allan Block has created a Fences Above Retaining Walls Tech sheet that covers the different location and installation options.

One way to account for the overturning forces is to use a product called Sleeve-It by Strata that will reroute the forces away from the wall.
