There are several options for installing fences and guide rails on top of an Allan Block retaining wall. The structure and wind loads of the materials used will determine the placement of the fence relative to the retaining wall and if additional reinforcement is required. Refer to the approved plans for construction details.

Don't Wait Until Your Retaining Wall Is Built to Consider Fence Requirements

By then it's too late. Addressing fence integration as an afterthought not only significantly reduces the integrity of the existing retaining wall structure, it often results in the loss of at least three feet of valuable real estate for the entire length of the fence you need along the retaining wall. The Sleeve-It® System by Strata works with in new wall construction, integrating the fence perfectly in every way.
