When fixing a window in a rubble wall which has inconsistent infill many time mechanical and even resin anchors will nor perform well or consistently. It is in these conditions where a cement based socked anchor provides the ideal solution to cover any voids or cavities. Even in Speedtile or CMU walls this system provides maximum anchorage in a fire rated anchor and is easily installed.
First we had stone, then we had Terracotta with over 100 plants in the US alone, now there are only three, two in the US and one in the UK suppling primarily replacement units.
Consider the next transition is CastCotta, a cast unit, that has the decorative capabilities of Terracotta but is as easy to use as a CMU, with all the textures, shapes and glazes we have come to know, with similar ease of installation. CastCotta is identical in Form and Function to Terracotta, is 40% lighter than Terracotta and 80% lighter than precast. Architects, please consider the possibilities not only for replacement but primarily New Construction accent pieces. Other items including Brownstone, Limestone Granite and others are possible with CastCotta. CastCotta can provide this transition.
Contractors, with a 6 week delivery get your project back on schedule and consider CastCotta for your current or future projects.

Considering there are typically two owners involved in every LL37 Retaining Wall project simplicity is key.
The philosophy of SIP vs ROAR starts with removing or repairing as little as possible, continues with all operations being performed from the “OWNER’S” side and involves turning an unreinforced masonry structure into a reinforced masonry structure with a series of socked anchors, including post-tensioned, and involving the backfill as necessary but all contained within the fabric of the structure itself. The detail above is but one solution provided in a complete manual designed by Cintec available from ConSpec by placing the words “Cintec Retaining Wall Manual” in the subject line of the contact sheet on this web site ( https://www.conspec-rep.com/contact-us/ ).
