AB Metropolitan

The AB Metropolitan Collection. With minimalistic aesthetics and smooth clean lines, the AB Metropolitan line of blocks main focus is on functionality. This mid-century modern style will offer the same dependable Allan Block system in this brand new look.

Note: It is always advised to view a physical sample ahead of making a final selection.

Easy Installation

The AB Metropolitan Collection is easy to install. These blocks dry-stack without mortar or footings. The hollow core feature makes them easier to handle and promotes good drainage behind the wall. The raised lip and notch lock each block in place and creates a natural setback. The AB Metropolitan Collection is right at home in residential settings where retaining walls 6ft (1.8 m) and under are typically called for, and up to the task on larger retaining walls 6ft (1.8 m) and over.
