Strict safety conditions
A wall that has to protect the employees of the German embassy in a war zone must of course meet all kinds of strict requirements in order to offer optimal protection. The German Bundeswehr has therefore carried out various tests. This showed that the large concrete blocks of Legioblock meet all given requirements. It protects against all kinds of ammunition and remain intact after an attack. In addition, Legioblock advised to place a steel fence in front of the wall to limit damage to the wall in the event of an explosion.
Sturdy foundation at the Legioblocken wall
In addition, in sandy areas, such as Afghanistan, a solid foundation is important. Heavy rainfall can wash away the sand and thus endanger the strength of the retaining wall. Earthquakes must also be taken into account in this area. Legioblock advised pull rods for this: vertical rods through the concrete wall and attached to the foundation and on top of the blocks with a bolt.
